Jadon Sancho’s meteoric rise this year has seen him linked with a number of Premier League teams in recent weeks. The Borussia Dortmund winger, who made his England debut against Croatia on Friday, is reportedly a target for the likes of Tottenham and Liverpool – according to the Daily Mirror. The same report suggests the German side would ask for £100 million to sell the teenager, a fee that seems a little hyperbolic.
But there’s no doubt that Tottenham would be bringing in a brilliant talent if they did manage to put a deal together.
If they could also get their own Sancho-like player back on track, it could be the basis of a dream front English front-three.
Marcus Edwards burst onto the scene for Tottenham back in 2016. Likened to Lionel Messi by Mauricio Pochettino, his career has stalled over the past two years. Question marks over his effort in training arose after a poor spell on loan at Norwich City.
“The qualities – it’s only looks, his body and the way that he plays – remember a little bit from the beginning of Messi.”
This summer, Edwards was linked with a permanent exit from Spurs. However, he impressed over the summer and was loaned out to Dutch side Excelsior.
Edwards was once considered to be England’s next star winger, not Sancho. He is enjoying his time in Holland and can hopefully start to show the excellent ability that had the Tottenham boss spewing soundbites two years ago.
Tottenham would have a dream English attack of Sancho on the left, Edwards on the right and Harry Kane through the middle if they could achieve both these feats.
