Sky Sports journalist says ‘outrageous’ player will have Tottenham medical today



Sky Sports journalist says ‘outrageous’ player will have Tottenham medical today

Sky Sports journalist Dharmesh Sheth has claimed that Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of signing James Maddison, with a medical scheduled to take place today.

Spurs have already completed the signing of Guglielmo Vicario from Empoli, while Dejan Kulusevski’s loan deal was also made permanent earlier this month.

Now, the focus is on an attacking midfielder, and Sheth has revealed on Twitter that Maddison is all set to become a new Tottenham player.
Sky Sports journalist says James Maddison will have his Tottenham medical today
Tottenham have long been linked with a move to sign James Maddison.

The ‘outrageous‘ Englishman has been one of the best attacking midfielders in the Premier League for a few years now. He has almost always delivered for Leicester, and he is due a big move.

It was always going to be between Tottenham and Newcastle United for Maddison this summer, but it looks like Spurs have won the race to sign him.

After revealing that Ange Postecoglou’s side were in advanced negotiations with Leicester for Maddison, Sheth confirmed on Twitter last night that the 26-year-old will have his Spurs medical on Wednesday, which is today.

The Sky Sports journalist tweeted: “Told James Maddison will have a medical on Wednesday.

“Tottenham & Leicester have an agreement in place worth £40m.”

TBR View:
Tottenham deserve immense credit if they pull this deal off.

Yes, Leicester are no longer in the Premier League and yes, Maddison only has a year left on his contract, but to get him for just £40 million so early in the window is just incredible business.

Tottenham won’t be in any European competition next season, which means they’ll mostly play just one game a week. That could act as a huge advantage for Spurs.

If Maddison hits the ground running and Harry Kane continues to fire, Spurs could end up having a season to remember.

Man Utd, Tottenham and Chelsea have looming £272m blackhole to fill with clock ticking

Manchester United, Tottenham and Chelsea will all be busy over the next year with a host of valuable assets being out of contract, potentially losing them millions in the transfer window. It’s become more of a norm nowadays to see clubs willingly lose top stars as free agents as they struggle to bring in fees worth selling for.

Liverpool saw Naby Keita, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Roberto Firmino all leave as free agents this summer as they’re valuations were not met in previous windows. While Milner and Firmino were given an emotional farewell, there will be a part of the Liverpool ownership group who will surely be kicking themselves for not getting anything back from the £83million outlay for both Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Both midfielders are still under 30 and have a chance of playing at the top level elsewhere and still could have commanded a fee. It acts as a warning for Liverpool’s rivals, who all face a similar situation next year.

Arsenal have managed to avoid a potential headache by signing William Saliba up to a new long-term deal. But north London rivals Tottenham arguably have the biggest worry of all with Harry Kane showing no sign of putting pen to paper on an extension.

According to transfermarkt, Kane is valued at £78m alone but he’s not the only player who Tottenham risk losing for free. Davinson Sanchez, Ivan Perisic, Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier are also out of contract in 2024.

In total, Tottenham risk missing out on £114m in transfers judging from their valuation on transfermarkt. Chelsea are in a similar situation with Mason Mount the biggest name potentially leaving on a free.

Manchester United are pushing to sign the attacking midfielder this summer with the Blues hoping to cash in now and avoid him leaving for nothing, but they’ve so far rejected two bids. Chelsea have managed to offload both Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek on permanent deals this summer with both players out of contract next year.

Fabrizio Romano claims Tottenham will soon unveil ‘extraordinary’ signing

Tottenham Hotspur should be announcing the signing of Guglielmo Vicari any time now.

Spurs turned their attention away from David Raya and onto the Empoli goalkeeper, with negotiations moving fast.

Tottenham quickly struck a deal and, for a few days now, the decisive steps of the transfer have been taking place.

Fabrizio Romano has now confirmed that Vicario has completed the second part of his medical with Spurs.

In addition, all the documents have been signed, and the Italian should be unveiled as a Tottenham player soon.

Vicario has penned a contract with Spurs until the summer of 2028, added Romano.

‘The second-best Italian stopper’
Based on Romano’s comments, it looks like the Spurs announcement will be the very next step of this move.

Tottenham have been looking for a long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris this summer.

Spurs initially focused on Brentford’s David Raya, but they seem to have turned their attentions elsewhere.

Apparently, the Bees weren’t budging on their £40million valuation of their asset in between the sticks.

Meanwhile, Vicario will reportedly cost Tottenham just over £16million.

there have been plenty of positive reports from the likes of Alasdair Gold regarding Vicario.

‘The view in Italy is that Vicario was second only to Inter’s Andre Onana in Serie A with his performances last season,’ said Gold.

‘And (he) has become the second-best Italian stopper behind PSG’s Gianluigi Donnarumma.

And last year, Italy legend Gianluigi Buffon said Vicario was doing “extraordinary” things at Empoli.

In addition, Tottenham are signing a player that Manchester United were reportedly monitoring too.

All in all, Vicario looks promising. Let’s see how he does in pre-season and beyond for the Lilywhites.
