The Sun reports that Leicester were hoping for £40million each for the pair, but with two of the league’s biggest sides chasing both, their prices could skyrocket.

Maddison was the subject of a bid from Newcastle last summer, but stayed for the season and is now entering the final year of his contract at the King Power Stadium.

That means Leicester have their final chance to sell the England international for a big profit, with the interest of multiple sides certainly welcome.

Barnes, meanwhile, has a contract with Leicester until 2025, but has similarly attracted big interest after as arguably the stand-out player this season for his boyhood team.

Both capped by Gareth Southgate, Maddison has retained his place in the Three Lions squad after the 2022 World Cup, while Barnes could be set for another call-up if his form continues.

With 13 goals for the Foxes this season, only Martin Odegaard has more among Premier League midfielders, meaning Spurs and Newcastle aren’t the only sides interested.

But Spurs and Newcastle may be inclined to make a big offer early, with Leicester keen to fill up their cash reserves ahead of a summer rebuild
