Arsenal should go all out to secure James Maddison whatever the price

James Maddison is Exactly What We Need

Make no mistake about it, Arsenal’s public pursuit of James Maddison is exactly the kind of move we should be expected to make after the abysmal season we just had.

Also make no mistake about it: Maddison is not exactly a Smith-Rowe like midfielder who is amazing at combination football and overloads. He is slightly different, more direct and incisive. He is also a setpiece expert, something lacking in the squad. He is the type of midfielder to come in and make an immediate impact while still not at his peak yet.

“James Maddison wasn’t called up by Gareth Southgate to represent England at Euro 2020,” Paul Merson told Sports Keeda. “So he will be fresh and raring to go ahead of the 2021-22 Premier League season.

“Before his unfortunate injury last season, he was absolutely flying for Leicester City and I got the feeling that he came back a bit too early. I like Maddison and I think he can make a real impact this season.

“He can really rip it up and will have an advantage over those who had international commitments earlier this summer, as those players may not start the forthcoming season for their respective clubs.”

Potentially, we are looking at a double-digit goals and assists midfielder who is also relatively young and English. Potentially, we will be weakening a possible rival for Champions League spots by signing him.
We have been crying out for goals from midfield since Aaron Ramsey left. James Maddison is the guy.

A proper talent with no issues of adaptation or anything. Throw the bag at him, he is what we need. How many more midfielders in Europe can have the same possible impact with us?

  1. He’s more like our own ESR imo, we need a different kind of a more CAM player, good with the ball at his feet. Defense splitting passes, dictation of play etc.
    An Odegaard or Auoar-esque player.

  2. Poor man’s Grealish, but seeing as we cannot afford Grealish then let’s try for Maddison. As much as I like Aouar he is unproven in the EPL, as is ESR, who also happens to be slightly injury prone.

    If we could get Maddison we could play him and Saka alongside Partey in Arteta’s favoured 433. The back up trio could be Willock Lokonga and ESR.

    If I was Arteta I would be going all out for Johnstone, Aarons, Madison and Sterling. I know 7 signings would be unimaginable, but what a statement.

    It will mean finding buyers for a number of our first team squad

  3. Why pay 60m pounds and 200K a week wages for Maddisson when you can get Sterling for same amount and 300k wages?
    Every player has a price tag. If man City get Kane, Arsenal should go all out for Sterling. Sell Willian, Xhaka, Kolasinac, Bellerin, AMN and Lacazette. Loan out Nketiah,Willock and Reis Nelson.

    I do not understand why Arteta offered Willian a 3 year contract?

  4. I prefer English youngsters for Arsenal ……they will give their hearts for the team…English youngsters will grow to love this club dearly……..fantasy..Johnstone, Aarons, Madison, Sterling and Tammy………..but Arsenal have too many players on their books……..good business all the buying for young players this year…and getting rid of older deadwood……consider the financial climate for the next 8 years……if Arsenal do all their buying now they don’t have to invest in the near future……imagine the prices of the same players in a few years time…….never mind price and salary…..if Arsenal don’t have to spend for the next say 6 years that’s very profitable…….good business……….!
