Arsenal strategies to raise funds for James Madison signing revealed.

Arsenal will reportedly have to spend around £60million to bring James Maddison to the club this summer, but how will Gunners raise funds to complete the deal?

James Maddison has reportedly surfaced as a top target for Arsenal this summer. The Leicester playmaker has also drawn interest from various Premier League clubs over the last year but has shown loyalty to Leicester, who have now pushed their way into the top-six following back-to-back fifth-place finishes.

Mikel Arteta needs an attacking midfielder, with the Gunners unpromising to land Real Madrid’s Martin Odegaard on a permanent settlement after his remarkable loan spell in north London.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal have now made Maddison their top target as they look to launch a bold swoop.

Despite coping with injuries, Maddison managed to register his best-ever goalscoring campaign in the Premier League last season, hitting eight goals for the Foxes and helping a further five.

He will not come inexpensive though and the report indicates that Leicester are said to reportedly want around £60m for the 24-year-old.


Arsenal will unquestionably have to raise funds in order to make a move for Maddison.

According to Express Sport, three players are likely to be sold to make the transfer happen.

Express sports mentions Granit Xhaka, Emile Smith Rowe, and Hector Bellerin as the players likely to be sacrificed to land Leicester man at Emirates.

Arsenal are reportedly content to sell Xhaka this summer, with Roma much keen on the midfielder.

Xhaka surfaced recently as Jose Mourinho’s primary transfer target after taking over as Roma manager but, after some initial progress, the move has now hit the buffers.

Reports say that Arsenal want around £17m for their former captain, who has divided opinion amongst supporters over the last few years.

Whilst Arteta will be keen to keep hold of Smith Rowe, if a huge bid was to come in for the youngster, possibly it would be wise to sell him in order to fund a move for Maddison.

The Gunners reportedly declined a £25m bid from Aston Villa for the attacking midfielder this week, with the 20-year-old’s deal expiring in 2023.

Arsenal apparently have no intention in selling Smith Rowe and will do what they can to keep him at the club but, if there is the potential that they could lose him on a free next summer, perhaps they need to rethink this stance.

The academy graduate scored two goals and seized four assists in 20 Premier League appearances last term, and could sell for upwards of £40m.

Bellerin looks likely to depart Arsenal this summer, after a decade at the club.

Arsenal are rumoured to want around £20m for the right-back, who looks likely to return to Spain.

Atletico Madrid and Real Betis are among those interested in the 26-year-old.

However, it is the La Liga champions, Atletico, who seemingly have the best chance of docking Bellerin if Kieran Trippier decides to return to the Premier League this summer.
