As shared by The Peterborough Telegraph, a transfer update has now come to light involving Tottenham Hotspur target and promising young defender Ronnie Edwards.
The Lowdown: Spurs step up chase?
The Championship starlet, who has been a mainstay under Posh manager Grant McCann and ex-boss Darren Ferguson over 2021/2022, has been on Spurs’ radar lately.
Football Insider recently shared that the Lilywhites are stepping up their interest as they line up a move for Edwards, coming as they look to beat off competition for his services this summer.
The England Under-19 international, who is apparently in high demand, will apparently cost over £10 million according to club director Barry Fry (Peterborough Telegraph).
As per the latest update, Spurs are ‘leading the race’ alongside an unnamed German club.
The Latest: Lilywhites heading chase…
Indeed, according to the local outlet’s information, Tottenham are frontrunners for Edwards’ signature as well as the European outfit with director Fry also confirming interest from the north Londoners.
As shared by this report, Fry himself reveals that ‘Spurs have been watching him for a long time’ but, ideally, if he were to leave, Edwards would be loaned back to the Weston Homes Stadium for another year.
The Verdict: Time to strike?
Tottenham, now confirmed to be eyeing Edwards, may have to think about a more concrete move given they may have to pay over £10m to sign him.
Fabio Paratici’s transfer kitty must be used sparingly with manager Antonio Conte earmarking the addition of a world class left-footed centre-half this summer (The Athletic).
While Peterborough’s teenage talent stands out as a defender with huge potential, with former boss Ferguson branding Edwards ‘incredible‘, Spurs may have to consider making a move only once they’ve sold surplus players like Tanguy Ndombele.
