Arsenal make Leicester star James Maddison one of their main summer transfer targets as they look to replace Real Madrid loanee Martin Odegaard

Arsenal have made James Maddison one of their main transfer targets as they seek a creative midfielder to replace Martin Odegaard.

Odegaard has returned to Real Madrid after a successful loan spell last term and the Gunners are desperate to find a No 10 to replace him, with Maddison high on their list.

Maddison signed a new four-year deal at Leicester worth about £100,000 a week last summer and scored or assisted 14 goals in 16 matches between December and February, before a recurrence of a hip problem effectively ended his chances of a place in the England squad for Euro 2020.
