James Maddison may just be staying – at least for now – at Leicester City after speculation linked the 24-year-old with a move away from the club.
Arsenal are believed to be interested in buying the England international.
In his pre-match press conference, reporter Mark Kielesz-Levine asked Brendan Rodgers and the Manager seemed hopeful that the midfielder would still be a Foxes player despite Maddison being linked to Arsenal this week.
“I believe so, I haven’t been told anything to say that he wouldn’t be. He’s happy in training and he’s working hard” was the Manager’s response.
Brendan also stated that James was a very important part of Leicester’s squad.
Though his follow-up question about whether he was either “not for sale or available at the right asking price” wasn’t answered.
Foxes fans will be perhaps relieved that for the moment, Maddison isn’t going anywhere.
Meanwhile, Leicester’s opponents in the Community Shield, Manchester City, are close to sealing the 100 million transfer of Aston Villa Captain, Jack Grealish.
