Former Everton striker Tony Cascarino has urged Arsenal to make a move for Leicester midfielder James Maddison.
Cascarino says that Maddison would be perfect for Arsenal and that he should be the man to replace Aaron Ramsey at The Emirates.
Ramsey has agreed a deal to join Italian giants Juventus at the end of the season, upon the expiry of his Arsenal contract.
Maddison only joined Leicester at the start of the season, signed from Norwich for £25m.
The Englishman has seven goals and six assists to date in his first Premier League season, as well as topping chances created in Europe’s top five leagues.
As quoted by The Mirror, Cascarino said this:
I look at Maddison and I think, ‘Arsenal is your team. Maddison should be the man to replace Aaron Ramsey.
The role was deemed a luxury in past, their job was to create chances and make a difference in attack.
Mesut Ozil and Dele Alli are expected to deliver without the ball and to be a defender for their teams too.
You have to be very gifted to do that and nine out of ten gifted players do not want to work without the ball. Maddison’s work-rate is good and getting better.
There is no question about whether he is technical enough for the top flight.
