Ipswich Town winger Gwion Edwards has emerged as a target for Hull City as The Tigers look to strengthen their attacking options, it has been reported.
Edwards has been one of the bright sparks of a dismal campaign for Ipswich that saw them win just five Championship games this season to send them plummeting into the third, despite the best efforts of Edwards, who was the club’s joint top scorer with six goals, while also contributing three assists.
According to HITC, those performances have drawn the attention of a number of Championship sides, with Hull one of those considering a move for the winger.
The Tigers may need to strengthen in that area of the park, with a number of Premier League sides expected to make offers for Jarrod Bowen in the summer transfer window.
Having only joined from League One Peterborough last summer, Edwards still has another year on his contract at Portman Road, with the club holding the option to extend that deal by a further twelve months.
He may not be at the same level as Bowen, but in a Championship level squad such as Hull’s, you feel Edwards could still have the ability to perform in the second tier, having shown flashes of potential in what has been a poor Ipswich side this season.
Edwards himself may feel he still has something to prove at this level after being part of an Ipswich side that performed so disappointingly throughout the campaign.
If Hull are to make a bid for Edwards you feel it would be hard for Ipswich to turn down, particularly if The Tigers have money from any possible sale of Bowen to burn.
