Arsenal appear to have dodged a bullet by not signing £70m man
Arsenal were heavily linked with James Maddison this summer and it now appears that it was the right decision not to splash the cash on him
Arsenal were heavily linked with Leicester City attacking midfielder James Maddison in their pursuit of a creative midfielder.
The Gunners instead opted to sign Martin Odegaard for £30m rather than Maddison who was valued at over £60m by Leicester City.
It now appears that Arsenal may have dodged a bullet by not signing the England playmaker as he is in poor form.
Maddison is yet to register a goal or assist in five appearances this season and he has apparently gone 16 matches with no goal or assist.
The poor run of form is alarming for a playmaker especially of his calibre and for a player highly valued. Arsenal could consider themselves lucky that he wasn’t signed given his current form.
In 2019 Arsenal broke their transfer record fee by signing Nicolas Pepe for £72m and his transfer was deemed controversial.
However, the Ivorian winger is slowly justifying his price tag having scored 15 goals last season.
