According to the print edition of O Jogo (as relayed by Sport Witness), Tottenham Hotspur are continuing to entertain the possibility of re-signing Marcus Edwards.

Edwards, who came through the ranks of the Spurs academy, has developed impressively since his switch to Sporting Lisbon and has emerged as one of the spearheads of Ruben Amorim’s side.

O Jogo claim that the 24-year-old’s progress is being followed by several clubs across Europe, including Tottenham.

Tottenham are still looking at Marcus Edwards

In fact, it is alleged that Spurs ‘recently’ made contact over the winger’s availability but Sporting president Frederico Varandas made it clear to the North London club that the player is for sale.

The report points out that Tottenham would get a 35 per cent discount on the price for Edwards, owing to a clause that was inserted when he left the Lilywhites in 2019.

The outlet explains that while Spurs initially had a 50 per cent sell-on clause, they gave up 15 per cent as part of the deal to bring Pedro Porro from Jose Alvalade Stadium to N17 back in January.

Edwards seems like a much better fit for Ange’s style of play than Conte’s. Given that he is homegrown and the fact that we have a 35 per cent sell-on clause, I would not be surprised if Tottenham make another approach for the winger in January or next summer.
