Arsenal are being linked with different players this summer, although one rumour might not go down well with supporters as former Tottenham player Marcus Edwards is a name being linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium.
According to GiveMeSport, Spurs are not likely to re-sign Edwards, who is currently playing in Portugal, and this has opened the door for other clubs to sign the player.
He has a €15m (£13.4m) release clause in his contract with Vitoria de Guimares and apparently Edwards would prefer a move to north London rivals Arsenal, but the Gunners have yet to properly express any real interest in the player as of yet, per GiveMeSport.
The 21-year-old has has a pretty impressive campaign in Portugal, picking up eight goals and five assists in all competitions, per WhoScored. This is a pretty impressive tally for the attacking midfielder, and the fact that he has 1.7 shots, 3.1 successful dribbles and 1.4 key passes per game emphasises the attacking potential that he possesses, which could make him a good signing for the Gunners.
However, there are a couple of things which should stop the Gunners from signing Edwards. One is the fact Tottenham have a sell-on clause for the player, so Arsenal would be giving their arch-rivals some money which they could then use in the summer transfer window.
Arsenal also have their own young prospects illuminating the Emirates, including Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka and Eddie Nketiah, and the Gunners should focus on this attacking talent instead of spending more than £10m on Edwards.
Gunners fans, should Arsenal steer clear of signing Edwards this summer? Comment below with your views!
