Jose Mourinho tracking former Tottenham youngster Marcus Edwards
Edwards joined Portuguese side Vitória de Guimarães in the summer on a four-year deal. The Englishman is a talented player, who can dribble and create chances. His set-piece abilities and prowess in front of the goal earnt him the nickname ‘Mini Messi’ while at Spurs. (h/t Football London)
The 21-year-old is versatile and can play in both attacking midfield and as a winger. Edwards has made 13 appearances for Vitoria this season, scoring 4 goals and assisting 3. (h/t Whoscored)
During his time at Tottenham, the starlet made one appearance for the club against Gillingham in the League Cup in 2016.
Edwards has a buyout clause of £13.6million but with a 50% sell-on clause held by Spurs should give us a reasonable bargaining chip in negotiating for the player.
