The Leicester City man has started the new campaign in a sparkling form.
James Maddison was reportedly a target for United in the summer but it was some other player the Reds bought from the Foxes. The 22-year-old attacking midfielder remains a desired player though.
Gary Beville said of Maddison on Sky Sports: "He is a genuine creative player. I think he is outstanding. I think he will be playing for England a lot of times. He will be in the European Championship squad. I think he’s fantastic."
James Carragher agreed: "I think he is the one player outside of the top six who Liverpool should be looking at."
