The Daily Mirror is claiming that the two English teams are interested in a deal to land the 21-year-old midfield maestro, with the likes of Everton, Tottenham Hotspurs, Brighton and Southampton all keen as well.

James Maddison has been in brilliant shape for Norwich City this campaign, netting 14 goals and providing eight assists in 44 English Championship matches for the Canaries.

He recently sustained a knee problem, but the injury is not thought to be a serious one as earlier feared and the midfielder is only prepared to be sidelined for about eight to 10 weeks.
