Southampton are being linked with a move for Norwich City playmaker James Maddison.

According to a report from the Mirror, the Saints are among a host of top flight clubs who are keen on the youngster as he continues to light up the Championship with some exceptional displays.

They will also be looking to retain Maddison’s services as the sale of Alex Pritchard to Huddersfield is set to go through soon.
