Arsenal target dropped unexplainedly from today’s playing squad

James Maddison has been left out of the Leicester playing squad for their friendly clash with Queens Park Rangers amidst speculation linking him with Arsenal.

The midfielder is rumoured to be of interest to the North London club, who are working hard in the transfer window to bridge the gap on those higher up the table, and have already moved to bring in three players into the first-team squad at this early point in the summer.

We don’t seem to be sitting on our laurels as we look to bolster our attacking options next, and Maddison could well be high on our wish list.

With that in mind, the English creative talent has been left out of the Foxes fixture today, not even being named on the bench consisting of 14 names.

There is no mention of any injury or fitness issues, which has got some circles to make assumptions on his exclusion.

Some Arsenal fans may have jumped the gun a little, calling for him to be announced at Arsenal.

Could Maddison’s exclusion have been to pursue a move elsewhere? Or in typical fashion, could an injury be set to sideline him and hamper our efforts to sign him…

      1. Ozziegunner says:

        Provided Maddison doesn’t continue his injury record from Leicester City at Arsenal or fall foul of the bright lights of London.

  3. Rasheed Kolade says:

    I really want arsenal to sign maddison because if they sign matinez make we we see better creative midfield I think for arsenal to splash that kind money on Ben white they will sign the two player maddison and matinez

    1. Silveraudi2 says:

      Ridiculous to expect a player of Maddison’s quality to drop down to a mid-table team that are not in Europe.

      1. Abby says:

        1. Ozziegunner says:

          The table doesn’t lie!

  4. GunneRay says:

    Dream on.. our activity is done as far is in coming players go. Just moving players out now!

    1. Biscuitbum says:

      I hope not, as we at least need a creative midfielder, and a replacement/alternative, preferably the former, to Leno.

  5. Kelly G Nation says:

    If Arsenal succeed in signing Madison and Martinez, I can assure you that we will not only make the top 4 but we will be competing for the trophy.

        Unexplainedly is a made-up word.

        Must try harder.

          They are synonymous. I learnt that today. I also wanted to criticise but decided to research first.

  6. Twig says:

    If we signed both Madison and Martinez how do you rate our chances of making the top four?

  7. GunneRay says:

    I love reading what these tin-pot sites have to say, it’s like they make it up as they go along and those that read the articles believe it all instantly. Talk about the blind leading the blind!

    According to Brendan, Maddison will need to submit a transfer request in order to move, but why would a player with England aspirations want to take a backward step to a club like Arsenal?
    Don’t get me wrong, the Gunners used to be a great side and they’ve had some of my favourite players (Ian Wright, say no more) but those days are long gone and they’ve looked seriously rubbish ever since they hounded Wenger out.
    They’ll be hunting for a new manager before Christmas and if things don’t improve quickly their fans will be the ones watching their star players leave, accept it or not, you know it’s true.

    I may be proved wrong, Maddison may submit a transfer request, but i seriously doubt it. A side that has finished 5th in each of the last two seasons. A side that won the league 5yrs ago, that won the FA Cup last season and a side that has strengthened it’s squad over the summer with more (reportedly) on the way… yeah, i can definitely see Maddison moving.

      And your team is?
