Tottenham supporters in the Transfer Tavern are very much looking forward to the remainder of the summer transfer window following news that manager Mauricio Pochettino has penned a new deal with the club.
The Argentine took over at the North London club back in 2014 after impressing in a short stint at Southampton, and the 46-year-old has since turned Spurs into one of the best teams in the country with three successive top four finishes in the Premier League. And while Pochettino has yet to deliver a trophy during his four-year stint at Tottenham, our resident Spurs fans are confident that he can be the man to end their silverware drought in the near future.
As such, there are many expectant Tottenham supporters in the Tavern at present, several of whom are likely to be intrigued by recent reports suggesting that Marcus Edwards wants to leave the North London outfit this summer.
Yet many of those Spurs fans lining up at the bar reckon that Pochettino must retain the 19-year-old wonderkid, as he is sure to light up the new stadium in the years to come.
Ultimately, the attacker is widely regarded as one of the most exciting players in the country given his efforts for Tottenham’s various youth sides, and indeed those of England.
Edwards has bagged nine goals for Spurs’ development team and was hugely influential in the Under-19s’ UEFA Youth League campaign this term, scoring four goals and laying on three assists to help them to four victories and a draw from their six games.
In fact, Pochettino recently dubbed the 19-year-old as ‘mini Messi’ to underline the high regard he is held in at the North London club, and with a bright future to come at their new stadium, they simply cannot afford to lose him this summer.
Ultimately, Spurs are entering a new era by moving to the new White Hart Lane in the near future, with many fans hoping that it can be the catalyst for major success at Premier League level, and indeed on the European stage.
But for that to happen, they will need genuine quality throughout the side, and in the likes of Dele Alli, Harry Kane, and Christian Eriksen, the future is very bright – Edwards will make it even brighter.
At the tender age of 19, the Englishman has a supremely big future ahead of him, and if Spurs are to light up their new stadium in the many years to come, he has to be a part of the set-up at the North London club.
As such, Pochettino simply must seek to retain the services of the exciting wonderkid this summer.
