Journalist Paul Brown has suggested that Daniel Levy did not want to let Marcus Edwards leave back in 2019 and that the Spurs chairman would love to bring the winger back to the north London club.

Edwards was always highly thought of while coming through Tottenham’s youth ranks and the winger has started fulfilling his potential over the last couple of years since deciding to kickstart his career abroad.

The 23-year-old has been one of Sporting Lisbon’s most potent attackers this season, with seven goals and six assists across all competitions so far (Transfermarkt).

Tottenham got a first-half glimpse of what the winger was capable of in the Champions League group stage clashes against the Portuguese side, with Edwards putting in two excellent displays against his former club and even scoring with a long-range effort in the 1-1 draw at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Portuguese publication Record reported last week that Spurs want to bring the youngster back to the club and were preparing an offer for him ahead of the January transfer window.

Brown believes that it is Levy who is likely spearheading Tottenham’s efforts to re-sign Edwards.

The journalist told GiveMeSport: “Marcus Edwards is an interesting one. Obviously, at Spurs before, I think the link there has Levy’s fingerprints all over it. 

“[It was] Something that he probably didn’t really want to do when they let the guy go and he’d love to have him back and fulfilling his potential at the club.”

Levy might spearhead the negotiations for Edwards but he certainly will not be the one driving the club’s interest in the winger, with Fabio Paratici now being the one who calls the shots. So, the North Londoners will only make a move for the winger if both the Spurs managing director of football and Conte want the player.
