Two late goals by Alejandro Pozuelo gave Toronto FC a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Fire in MLS play Saturday, snapping TFC's six-game winless streak.
Erik ten Hag's side have been looking to reinforce their midfield all summer and a deal worth an initial 60million euros (£50.7m) is close for the Brazil international. The fee for Casemiro could rise to 70m euros (£59.2m) if clauses are met, with a four-year deal plus the option of a further season on the table. Talk of a medical on Friday appears premature, which means he would not be registered in time for Monday's clash with rivals Liverpool.
The 25-year-old midfielder has two years left on his current deal but has attracted interest this summer from Newcastle, who failed to prise him away in a £40million bid. Maddison is one of the Foxes' star players and the club are keen to avoid him entering the final year of his contract next summer. For me, James is still the same.
