Leicester not interested in players offered for Maddison

News broke on Tuesday afternoon that Arsenal had proposed a player plus cash deal for Leicester midfielder, James Madison:

Maddison would no doubt be a fine addition to Arsenal’s midfield and help replace the creativity of Martin Odegaard following his return to Real Madrid.

However, an update has surfaced on Wednesday regarding the Gunners’ Maddison pursuit, and it isn’t great news for Arsenal fans.

Journalist Pete O’Rourke reports that Leicester have shown no interest in any of the players Arsenal have offered as part of the player plus cash deal for Maddison:

Gunners-linked Sam Johnstone likely to leave West Brom

As well as a creative midfielder, Arsenal appear to be in the market for a goalkeeper this summer.

One of the names linked this summer has been West Brom’s Sam Johnstone.

The Baggies are now, of course, set to ply their trade in the Championship following their relegation last term, with Johnstone’s future seemingly away from the Hawthorns.

Speaking on Johntone recently, West Brom manager Valerien Ismael stated that he has no future at West Brom and that Johnstone’s expectation is that he would leave the club:

“He came back early from his holiday – which is a sign. I have spoken with him and the feeling is that Sam is happy to be back, for sure.”

“It was never the case that we said he doesn’t have the right attitude, he has no future here. His expectation was that he would leave.”

No acceptable offers for Martinez

Finally, Arsenal have seen themselves linked with Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez in recent weeks.

However, at present, it does not appear as though the Gunners have made much progress over any potential deal.

This comes with journalist Kristof Terreur reporting that Inter have received no acceptable offers for Martinez:
