League One Coventry City was a good place for Ryan Kent to develop before returning to Liverpool, and it seems that a fruitful relationship between the two clubs could continue this summer.

James Maddison is a 19-year-old attacking midfielder who has made 31 appearances for his local club to date, catching the attention of top Premier League clubs such as Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool. The reliable Paul Joyce of the Daily Express reported that talks took place during the mid-season transfer window with a potential move in the summer.

It looks almost certain that any further news in the remaining hours of the deadline will not be about players making a move to Anfield before the 11PM GMT/6PM EST. James Maddison may be unfamiliar to many Liverpool fans but he could be one to watch for the summer transfer window.

Whether Liverpool will be a more attractive prospect than Tottenham will be open to question, but both clubs could make a strong case for young English players looking for opportunities and development. The Evening Standard recently highlighted an asking price of £7 million that cooled Tottenham's interest in the player, but young players from the lower leagues can be worth the investment.
