However, in what is likely to be a bitter blow to fans’ hopes of seeing the midfielder swap the King Power for the Emirates, if Ornstein’s assessment proves accurate, Maddison joining arriving in the country’s capital this summer is unlikely.

? James Maddison is not one that I can see developing, it would be a huge stretch of Arsenal’s finances & not realistic.

? Tammy Abraham, may need a new departure to facilitate that transfer.
