Journalist Luke Edwards has hinted that Martin Dubravka could form part of Newcastle United’s bid to land James Maddison.
The Magpies made an ‘unexpected’ £40m move for the midfielder over the weekend, and after their initial bid was rebuffed, they made a second attempt.
However, Edwards has now claimed that Martin Dubravka could add ‘another layer’ to this transfer.
Speaking on the BBC’s Transfer Gossip Daily podcast on Tuesday, he said: “There is, however, a rumour that Leicester might be interested in the Newcastle goalkeeper Martin Dubravka, which might add another layer to this story in the next 24/48 hours.”

Should Newcastle sell Dubravka?
However, the £10m arrival of Nick Pope has cast doubt over his role in the side. At 33, you would suspect the 30-cap Slovakia ace would be hoping to play regularly, and that opportunity could be afforded to him at the King Power Stadium.
Kasper Schmeichel looks set for a move to Nice in Ligue 1, leaving the No 1 spot at Leicester City vacant.
And as pointed out by reporter Lyall Thomas, there could be some ‘outgoings’ at the Foxes over the next month, which perhaps suggests that a deal can be struck that suits all parties before the end of the transfer window.
