Multiple Premier League clubs watching Marcus Edwards

Many Premier League clubs have been eyeing Sporting Lisbon winger Marcus Edwards for a long time, but no official approaches have been made.

Edwards had an impressive week for Sporting Lisbon, playing a pivotal role in their victory over his former club Tottenham in the Champions League.

The former Spurs man came through their academy but failed to make a league appearance before being sold to Vitoria de Guimaraes.

After a brief spell at Vitoria, Edwards was sold to Sporting and now plays regularly in the Champions League.

An Englishman playing abroad is a bit of a rarity, but as we’ve seen with Jadon Sancho, European clubs are sometimes more likely to offer you regular first-team football.

A return to England could be on the cards for Edwards, with Fabrizio Romano confirming to CaughtOffside via his Substack column that a number of Premier League clubs have been eyeing the Sporting attacker.

Romano also confirmed that Tottenham have a sell-out clause in his contract, so he will receive a percentage of the fee if he leaves Sporting.

Unfortunately, it’s unclear which Premier League clubs are interested in Edwards, but I’m sure the list has grown after his performance on the big stage in midweek.
