Former Tottenham defender Graham Roberts believes James Maddison could do a job at his old side and thinks Nuno Espirito Santo is lacking a creative player like the Leicester City star.
However, Roberts feels they could have done with bringing in someone who can play centrally and create.
Would you take Maddison at Tottenham?
The Spurs legend exclusively told TIF: “Maddison at Leicester, he could do it [add creativity]. But you have a look around and there’s not a lot. You know, even Liverpool don’t play with a creative midfielder.”
Maddison, who has previously been compared to David Beckham by former Leicester striker Tony Cottee, has struggled for form of late, but was also reportedly wanted by former boss Mauricio Pochettino to replace Christian Eriksen back in 2019.
Still, Maddison is a quality player, coming up with 13 goal contributions in the Premier League overall last term, so perhaps he could bring a spark to this Spurs side when on song – something for Nuno to maybe think about going into the January transfer window.
