Arsenal and Chelsea have been credited with an interest in signing Leicester City midfielder James Maddison.
The Gunners are searching for a creative midfielder, and they recently failed with an attempt to sign Emiliano Buendia.
It is now claimed that Maddison has emerged as an option with manager Mikel Arteta being a huge admirer of him.
However, the price tag could be a major stumbling block, as the Foxes could demand as much as £80m for his services.
The Blues have also been linked with the former Norwich City man, but he is not a priority for them at the moment.
The west London giants could enter the pursuit, if Hakim Ziyech heads through the exit door in the coming weeks.
Maddison had an impressive third season with the Foxes last term, registering 11 goals and 10 assists from 42 games.
He has three years remaining on his contract, and the Foxes are in a strong position to maintain their stance on the price tag.
