Swansea City rivalling Bournemouth and Brentford in a bid to sign 22-year-old

Published

A plethora of Championship clubs are said to be interested in securing the signing of 22-year-old right winger Marcus Edwards, with Team Talk reporting that the player is strongly linked with a return to his homeland. 

Swansea City, Brentford and AFC Bournemouth are said to be interested in signing him.

Currently plying his trade in Portugal for Vitoria Guimaraes, Edwards has slowly rebuilt his career on foreign shores, with his strong showings for the Liga NOS club attracting widespread interest in his services.

Having initially come through the ranks at his boyhood club Tottenham Hotspur, the versatile attacker found opportunities hard to come by, making just a single first team appearance for the North London outfit before departing the club permanently in 2019 after a series of loan spells away from the club.

Quiz: Which club did Swansea City sign each of these 25 players from?

1 of 25

Nathan Dyer?

The nimble forward player currently has three years remaining on his current contract and has racked up an impressive 10 goals and 11 assists in 46 games across all competitions for his current club and would be a great addition for the likes of Bournemouth, Brentford or Swansea City.

The Verdict 

This would be an intriguing signing for the Swans if they did indeed make a move for the 22-year-old, with the Welsh side having only notched up 19 goals in the league, perhaps suggesting there is a lack of creativity within the starting eleven.

Edwards certainly fits the mould of the type of player that Steve Cooper usually plucks for when bringing in new additions and would certainly come at a cheaper price in comparison to other targets.

His age and rising profile make him a good long term replacement for Andre Ayew, who has appeared to be close to an exit in the past, whilst the Ghanaian veteran isn’t getting any younger.

Furthermore, the winger is also likely to want to return closer to home later on down the line in his career and for all we know this coming January window or maybe the summer could be seen as the right time for Edwards to make said journey back to his roots.
