Leicester City attacker James Maddison has said that he has the ambition of playing at the highest level. The 22-year-old has been one of the standout performers for the Foxes over the past 14 months and that has earned him a call-up to the England national side for the European qualifiers this month.

Speaking to The Mirror, Maddison spoke about the progress made from the youth setup and stated that he would prefer to play at the highest level based on his ability, he told: "I want to play at the highest level my ability will allow me to. I like to think I've my head screwed on with the transfers I've made. I've played League One, in Scotland, the Championship and the Premier League. I worked my way up."

Maddison made the move to the Premier League rom Norwich City last year and he was a success during his debut season with seven goals and seven assists across all competitions. He has continued the good run of form this term with a couple of assists for the Foxes, who are presently third on the league table.

Owing to this, there has been speculation that he could part ways with the Foxes sooner rather than later and reports have claimed that Manchester United could be a possible destination for the former Coventry City graduate. The Red Devils were touted to pursue a creative midfielder during the summer but they were associated with a move for Sporting’s Bruno Fernandes.

However, the Mancunian giants had second thoughts over lodging a formal approach and they eventually did not pursue an attacking midfielder. Maddison has already shown that he can cut it at the Premier League level and it remains to be seen whether he would be reunited with former teammate Harry Maguire at Old Trafford when the transfer window reopens.
