Norwich City are prepared to cash in on star man James Maddison in a bid to fund their own transfers, according to The Mirror.

Canaries boss Daniel Farke values the playmaker at £25m. 

It is understood that Leicester City and Everton are at the front of the que in the race to sign Maddison, but Premier League new boys Fulham are also keen on the 21 year old.

Maddison joined the Yellows in 2016 during the January transfer window, signing for £3m from League One side Coventry City.

However, he failed to break in to the first team under former manager Alex Neil and made his debut under Alan Irvine on the last day of the 2016/17 season, where he scored against Preston North End.

The youngster featured heavily under Daniel Farke last season and was Norwich’s top scorer with 15 goals, as well as turning provider on 11 occasions.

His impressive form saw him earn a place in the Championship team of the season, but he now looks set to depart Carrow Road with the Premier League beckoning.

In the final game of the Championship season Maddison suffered an injury against Sheffield Wednesday, but the playmaker should be fit by July.

Norwich want to keep hold of their main man but may be forced to cash in as their parachute payments have dropped for next season.

It looks like James Maddison will be playing top flight football next season, but his destination is still unclear.

However, Norwich will be hoping to get a deal sorted soon in order to fund a replacement for their outgoing superstar.
