A number of Championship sides are keeping tabs on Tottenham attacking midfielder Marcus Edwards, according to Football London.
The 19-year-old didn’t enjoy the best of spells whilst on loan at Norwich City last season, and he’ll be looking to revive his career elsewhere.
Leeds United could potentially be one of the sides monitoring the young midfielder, so would Edwards and Leeds be a good fit?
Leeds already have Pablo Hernandez, Samu Saiz and Ezgjan Alioski, so there is little need for another attacking midfielder at the club.
Edwards possesses a lot of natural talent and flair but he would be a risky purchase given his attitude concerns and a lack of playing time at senior level.
The teenager is very small in stature and he needs to prove that he can cope with the physical demands of the Championship before Leeds take a punt on him.
But if Marcelo Bielsa comes in with a no-nonsense approach, Edwards may be a shrewd purchase to play as one of his two inverted wingers in his strange 3-3-3-1 formation.
I’d say avoid.
Leeds need players that are definitely going to perform and though he is talented he is not consistent enough right now.
Him and Bielsa probably would not get on.
This is the type of deal that Leeds’ supporters would love to see happen this summer.
Edwards is positive and could thrive alongside some of Leeds’ players.
It’d be a real statement from the Whites. If Andrea Radrizzani is serious this summer, he should be considering a move for the 19-year-old.
