Tottenham stormed to a convincing 4-0 win over Everton this weekend, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men completely blowing their Premier League rivals out of the water.
The squad are hitting form at exactly the right time, with the likes of Son Heung Min and Harry Kane particularly impressing in recent weeks. Spurs fans here at The Transfer Tavern are very excited by what the second half of the season holds for their side, with particular interest in their Champions League knockout stage tie with Italian champions, Juventus. Fans are keen to see the squad improved this month, but reports emerging today in The Guardian have suggested a potential departure, with Pochettino keen to sanction a Championship loan move for young Marcus Edwards.
The 19-year-old attacking midfielder tasted success in the summer as England’s U19’s secured a European Championship crown, and The Guardian reports that several second-tier sides are interested in a deal for the academy graduate. Edwards made his debut in 2016 but has failed to break into the first-team this season, but is held in high regard in North London, acquiring the nickname ‘Mini Messi’ at the club.
Landlord’s Verdict: Edwards is an extremely talented young player with bags of potential, and has future England international written all over him. Spurs possess a lot of quality so opportunities with the first-team have been limited, and it appears that Pochettino is willing to make the sensible decision to send the player out on loan this month.
Edwards would prove to be a wonderful capture for a number of Championship sides, and with Pochettino sanctioning a deal, a scramble for his signature in expected in the coming days.
