Read Up “Ange Postecoglou warned Tottenham’s James Maddison to work hard” The Newcastle United interest in the Leicester City player has cooled, and Trevor Sinclair, a former Premier League great, believes it will be a good addition for the north Londoners.

“Historically, Tottenham has always had a ball-playing midfielder, and I think that’s James Maddison,” said Sinclair. “He’s technical, he can hold onto the ball, he can look after it and do things, and he’s not too safe.

For anyone in the league, I believe he would be a huge acquisition, but I believe he could start straight away for Spurs.

“From what I gather, Ange Postecoglou impresses him, but he needs to realize that in order to play for Postecoglou at Spurs, he must improve both on and off the ball.

“That’s an area where I feel he could work harder off the ball if he wants to get to the next level, so if he wants to go and work for Postecoglou, he’s got to put in the hard yards,” the coach said.

Declan Rice can be the player that transforms Arsenal into serial winners should he join in a club-record £100million deal.

According to former Chelsea player Tony Cascarino, the 24-year-old might be Mikel Arteta’s lone remaining link.

The Liverpool duo of Alisson and Virgil van Dijk have exerted the same effect at Anfield as the England international can at the Emirates, according to Cascarino.

“If you look at Arsenal, since Arteta came in December 2019, that season they got 56 points,” Cascarino stated on the Weekend Sports Breakfast.

“He hadn’t participated earlier in the year; the following year, they received 61; the following year, they received 69.

“And last year they received 84, showing that Arsenal is on the rise.”

Declan Rice would arrive and have the same impact at Liverpool that Alisson and Van Dijk did.
