England's James Maddison
Leicester City midfielder James Maddison says he is unfazed by the £60 million ($76 million) price tag which has reportedly been placed on him.

The 22-year player has been linked with the some of the biggest clubs in England names; Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Arsenal.

This comes after the attack-minded player scored seven goals in 36 matches in the English Premier League during the 2018/19 season.

Maddison discussed the'£60m price tag' and whether the transfer talk is playing on his mind.

"No, you have just got to ignore that and take it all in your stride," Maddison told Sky Sports.

"As a 17 year-old boy I'd started five games for Coventry and saw on my phone that I was being linked with Tottenham and Liverpool.

"With transfer talk you need to take it as a compliment that people are even talking about you, it won't distract me."

The former Norwich City star is set to represent England at the 2018 UEFA European Under-21 Championship which is being co-hosted by San Marino and Italy.

He was surprisingly left out of England's squad for the recent UEFA Nations League top four finals in Portugal.
