Tottenham keen to pip Newcastle to James Maddison signing; Leicester looking to land Conor Coady

Tottenham are reportedly closing in on a deal for Leicester City midfielder James Maddison, while the Foxes are lining up a signing of their own as they have been linked with Wolves' Conor Coady.

Leicester City manager Enzo Maresca is starting to reshape his squad for the Championship season - closing on a deal for Conor Coady as James Maddison nears an exit to Tottenham.
Maresca was appointed as the Foxes' new manager in mid June - and has targeted Coady as a player who can help the club achieve promotion back to the Premier League.
The 30-year-old centre-back was loaned out to Everton last season after falling out of favour at Molineux - and made 23 league appearances for the Toffees, scoring one goal.
Coady has returned to his parent club Wolves - but it seems his future could lie at the King Power Stadium, with Maresca keen to add him to his defensive pool, according to Sky Sports.
They also report that England playmaker Maddison - also a summer transfer window target for Newcastle United - who only has one year left on his current Leicester contract.
The Magpies have instead moved their midfield hunt to AC Milan's Sandro Tonali, clearing the path for Tottenham to make a move for Maddison.
Sky Sports claim the Londoners are in advanced talks with Leicester over the signing of Maddison, who registered 10 goals in nine assists in 30 league games last season.
The two clubs are yet to agree a fee, with Maddison rated in the £60million bracket, but once that is settled, personal terms are not expected to be a problem for Spurs.
New Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou has already bolstered his squad this summer, with Dejan Kulusevski making a permanent move from Juventus and goalkeeper Guglielmo Vicario joining from Empoli on Tuesday, June 27.
