Championship club Norwich City have reportedly decided to let James Maddison to leave the club in the summer for a fee of £30m amid interest from the hosts of European giants including Liverpool.

Maddison has established himself as one of the key players at the Canaries this campaign, with eight goals and five assists in 28 games in the Championship thus far.

However, according to The Mirror, the Canaries are prepared to sell the highly-rated midfielder ahead of the 2017/18 season due to the end of their parachute payments after relegation from the Premier League back in 2016.

Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City have all taken an interest in signing the 21-year-old star, who still has three-and-a-half years remaining on his deal.

Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United have also previously been linked with Maddison, however, they have effectively been demoted to outsiders in the race to sign the England Under-21 international, who has previously spent time at Aberdeen and Coventry City.
