Transfer Race Heats up For PSV Eindhoven Winger Noni Madueke

Noni Madueke

PSV Eindhoven attacker Noni Madueke is attracting interest from Tottenham Hotspur, Leicester City, and Wolverhampton Wanderers according to Sky Sports’ Lyall Thomas.

However, it is reported that Madeueke’s valuation of between £30-34 million may prove too expensive for all three Premier League clubs.

Last season, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, and Manchester City were tracking the England U21 international. He scored seven goals and registered six assists in the Eredivisie during the 2020/21 campaign.

The lowdown on Noni Madueke

The 19-year-old midfielder was born in London and spent time in Tottenham’s academy. He joined PSV in 2018 aged just 16 and has emerged as a top upcoming talent in Europe. Madueke has made a big impact for the Dutch side in this season’s Champions League qualifiers, with three direct goal involvements.

The attacker made his England U21 debut at the summer’s European Championships against Portugal.

A string of scouts from a number of clubs including Juventus were reported to have watched Madeueke in PSV’s Champions League defeat to Benfica. However, PSV are eager to keep him and extend his current contract, which expires in 2024. This is especially so since they lost highly-rated striker Donyell Malen to Borussia Dortmund earlier this summer.

Interest in Madeueke Not Surprising

It is not surprising that numerous clubs across Europe are interested in Noni Madeueke. He has all the attributes you look for in a winger, being fast and creative, and having the ability to beat his man. Moreover, at just 19 years of age, he has plenty of scope for further development.

Madueke has shown he has an exceptional mentality considering he moved to the Netherlands at such a young age. His story is very similar to that of Jadon Sancho and it is refreshing to see young English players not scared of going abroad to improve their football careers.
