Tottenham Hotspur: Daniel Levy wants Marcus Edwards to return
Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy would love to have Marcus Edwards back at the north London club, according to journalist Paul Brown.
The Lowdown: Edwards’ history with Spurs
After working his way through Spurs’ youth ranks, the winger ended up leaving the club in September 2019 on a free transfer to Portuguese outfit Vitoria Guimaraes.
Having since joined Sporting Lisbon, it was recently reported that the Lilywhites are interested in bringing the 23-year-old back to N17, having seen him play against them twice in the Champions League earlier this season.
Brown has since shared his thoughts on the transfer rumour and who could be pulling the strings around it.
The Latest: Levy wants Edwards back at Spurs
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, the journalist had his say about the recent links with Spurs and Edwards, believing that Levy is very much involved.
Brown outlined: “Marcus Edwards is an interesting one. Obviously at Spurs before, I think the link there has Levy’s fingerprints all over it. [It was] Something that he probably didn’t really want to do when they let the guy go and he’d love to have him back and fulfilling his potential at the club.”
The Verdict: Should be Conte’s call
During his time with Guimaraes, the 23-year-old scored 20 goals and delivered 14 assists in 96 appearances. Since joining his current club, Edwards has found the net 10 times and supplied nine assists in 35 appearances.
This highlights the £22k-per-week attacking talents in terms of being able to score goals and set them up for his team-mates as well.
In terms of a potential return to Tottenham, regardless of whether or not Levy would like to see Edwards back at the club, it should ultimately be down to whether or not Antonio Conte wants him there, as he’s the manager who picks the team from one game to the next.
Given how the Italian currently has the likes of Dejan Kulusevski, Son Heung-min and Richarlison in his squad, it doesn’t seem likely that Edwards would be a guaranteed starter for Spurs despite his good form in Portugal.
