The Lowdown: Spurs eye move for Edwards…
The exciting teenager has been on Spurs’ radar for quite some time, as revealed by Peterborough club director Barry Fry.
Speaking in a recent interview, the Posh chief stated that Edwards is a player who has been watched by Tottenham for ‘a long time’ along with other clubs,including a ‘big’ German side (via football.london).
As per The Daily Echo reporter, that interest hasn’t waned as Spurs allegedly hold talks over a move for the 19-year-old.
The Latest: House makes Edwards claim…
Sharing a corresponding report from The Daily Echo, he outlined: “On Ronnie Edwards, understand #SaintsFC interest is at a very early stage. The 19yo is expected to leave Peterborough this summer. Spurs, Villa, United and Palace all have talked but nothing concrete yet. One we will follow through the weeks.”
The Verdict: Don’t hesitate…
Edwards stands out as one of the most promising talents in England, with his former manager Darren Ferguson even calling him ‘incredible‘.
His addition would also solve a glaring problem at Spurs in terms of their homegrown quota, in addition to ensuring that they have secured another real talent for the future.
According to WhoScored, despite his tender age, Edwards was one of Peterborough’s most reliable players in the Championship over the 2021/22 season as he averaged a colossal 3.7 clearances per 90, the second-highest of anyone in their squad.
He certainly seems like a brilliant talent and Spurs should be aiming to get at the front of the queue for him.
