But Grigg scored more goals at championship level last year in less games than he's played here so far. just because Maddison does well at Peterborough it doesn't mean he's a good fit here.I don't deny Grigg has under performed but Maddison has started off on the same vane as last year. He shows attacking intent and can certainly make a telling pass.
No matter who we get there are no guarantees. Just watch the EFL highlights and see what he provides.
At Peterborough they seem quite attack minded and have Eisa and Toney who seem to have a bit of pace and mobility going forward and are scoring their goals. I'm only summarising but Maddison may be a fantastic allround player or he may be someone who at this level can simply pick a pass or get the ball into the right area, which makes him stand out given they have players who can capitalise on that.
the most obvious thing that stands out is that his numbers stack up and yet he's available because of a clause for about 2m and not championship club have snapped him up or really looked likely to.
