Chelsea could join the race for James Maddison

James Maddison prefers a Chelsea move over Newcastle United.

The England international bagged 18 goals and 12 assists across all competitions last season with Leicester City.

He is struggling to force his way back into the England squad but he would have a great chance if he signs for a big club.

Newcastle United are looking at options to sign the 25-year-old midfielder but won’t match Foxes £60million asking price.

But Danny Murphy believes Maddison would prefer a move to Chelsea rather than Newcastle United.

“He’s a super talent, the only question mark over James Maddison is his application and sometimes his attitude, but his talent is up there,” Murphy told talkSPORT.

“At the moment you’d argue that out of Leicester and Newcastle, Leicester are better but Newcastle will quickly overtake them.

“He’s earning a lot of money at Leicester, but I’d be tempted if I was him. However, if Chelsea or one of the other top four clubs were to come in, I’d rather go to a ready-made top club.”
