West Ham are poised to revive their interest in Norwich City midfielder James Maddison, according to reports.

The Hammers are said to have had a £12m bid rejected for the midfielder in January and could now be set to revive their interest in the England U21 international following Manuel Lanzini’s injury on international duty.

Lanzini ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in training last week, ruling him out of the World Cup, and the Argentina international could be set for a substantial period on the side-lines.

West Ham are now reportedly keen on bringing in Maddison to fill the void left by Lanzini, however, they will have competition for the midfielder’s signature, with Everton, Leicester and newly promoted Fulham also said to be interested.

Maddison, who has also been watched by Liverpool and Manchester City reportedly, enjoyed an impressive season with Norwich in the Championship, scoring 15 goals in 49 appearances in all competitions last campaign.

That form saw him named as the Canaries’ Player-of-the-Season and Norwich could now face a fight to keep their star midfielder.
