Liverpool are keeping tabs on Sporting CP ace Marcus Edwards

According to a report from Football Insider (h/t BBC), Liverpool is eager to secure the services of Sporting CP standout Marcus Edwards, with the 25-year-old commanding a price tag of around £30 million.

Edwards has emerged as a key player for the Portuguese outfit, delivering several standout performances that have caught the attention of clubs across Europe. Liverpool sees him as a potentially valuable addition to their squad, offering versatility and skill to bolster their attacking options.

Having initially made his mark at the Tottenham academy and represented England at various youth levels, Edwards has flourished in Portugal, earning plaudits for his impressive displays on the field. His blend of talent and experience makes him an attractive prospect for Liverpool as they look to strengthen their squad ahead of the upcoming season.

Edwards could be very useful for the Reds

Luis Diaz is attracting interest from Paris Saint-Germain, with discussions between the player’s agents and the French club already underway. Should Diaz depart Anfield, Edwards is a potential replacement for the Reds.

Edwards’ versatility allows him to operate effectively in the number 10 role as well as in various attacking positions, offering Liverpool an added dimension in their offensive play. His ability to contribute both goals and assists would inject creativity into the team’s attacking play, increasing their ability to create scoring opportunities.

As Liverpool weighs the possibility of a £30 million deal for Edwards, the coming weeks promise to be intriguing. With six goals and eight assists across all competitions, Edwards’ productivity could soar even further when surrounded by the quality and ambition of a top club like Liverpool.

A rising star

The potential addition of Edwards to Liverpool’s attacking lineup may raise some eyebrows, particularly in light of recent criticism aimed at the team’s finishing. However, considering the reasonable price tag attached to Edwards, his arrival could bring balance and creativity to the Reds’ attacking play.

Teaming up with Mohamed Salah, Edwards could form a dynamic partnership on the wing, offering a blend of creativity and goal threat. While his own goal involvements may not be particularly noteworthy, Edwards’ ability to provide assists suggests a knack for creating scoring opportunities for his teammates. It’s possible that his productivity has been hampered by the lack of clinical finishing from those around him.

With the right guidance and support at Liverpool, there’s no doubt that Marcus Edwards has the talent and potential to make a significant impact and become a key player for the Reds, contributing to their success on the domestic and European fronts. Who knows, he could even reunite with Ruben Amorim should the latter opt to take over the reins from Jurgen Klopp.
