Tottenham Hotspur could re-sign former winger Marcus Edwards who departed the club last summer to join Vitória de Guimarães on a free transfer.

The winger has thrived in Portugal since leaving North London, scoring eight goals in 33 games so far this season (Wikipedia).

A story in the Portuguese newspaper, A Bola has picked up on the potential departure of the young Englishman, claiming there is plenty of interest in his services.

The report from the Portuguese outlet suggested that Tottenham’s Premier League rivals, Manchester United have ‘shown the desire to move forward’.

However, interestingly, they also claim Spurs are eager to ‘fix a screw-up’ of allowing Edwards to leave with his departure ‘inevitable’ this summer.

A potential move for Edwards would cost a club €15m due to his release clause but it would only cost Spurs half of that value as they negotiated 50% of the winger’s future sale when he left the club last summer.

It will be interesting to see if Spurs look to bring Edwards back to N17. He has certainly done well during his first season in Portugal, however, being able to do it in the Premier League is completely different.
