Arsenal are believed to be keeping a close watch on Coventry City’s £10million-rated youngster James Maddison, according to The Independent.
The 19-year-old is being tipped as one of the brightest young players in the third tier of English football, and manager Arsene Wenger is keeping tabs on his development.
Billed as a skilled attacking midfield player, a move to The Emirates would go a long way to improving his fledgling ability and could follow in the footsteps of Aaron Ramsey, who Wenger picked up from Cardiff as a teenager.
The Independent report states that Coventry would be open to moving the youngster on in the new year for a fee of around £10million, but only if the Gunners loan him back to the Midlands side for the remainder of the season.
However, Arsenal aren’t the only Premier League side interested in his signature, as Liverpool are also believed to be keeping a close watch on him.
