Tottenham representatives travel to Europe to watch attacker with 63 goals and 38 assists

By Mehdi Gokal -

According to 90min, Tottenham representatives were in Portugal to watch two players this weekend.

As per the report, they kept a close eye on Marcus Edwards and Pedro Goncalves during Benfica’s 2-1 win over Sporting Lisbon in the Lisbon derby on Sunday.

Scouts from a number of European clubs were present to watch the dramatic derby game with eyes on both teams’ talented stars. But Tottenham’s focus was on Edwards and Goncalves.

Edwards is reported to have a £52 million release clause, but Tottenham holds a 25% sell-on clause in his contract, potentially allowing them to secure his services for less than their competitors.

The former Tottenham academy product moved to Sporting CP, where he has thrived.

Last season, he scored 12 goals and provided 14 assists across all competitions, and he has continued his good form this season, with 3 goals and 4 assists so far.

Meanwhile, 90min reports that Pedro Goncalves caught Tottenham’s attention when they scouted Pedro Porro last year.

Goncalves is a versatile player capable of playing as an attacking midfielder or on either flank, making him an attractive signing for Tottenham and manager Ange Postecoglou.

The 25-year-old has contributed 3 goals and 1 assist in 11 games this season. Over 146 appearances for the Portuguese club, he has racked up 63 goals and 38 assists.

TBH says:

Goncalves is a versatile attacker who can play in a number of positions including both wings as well as an attacking midfielder.

Versatility is a trait that Ange seems to prefer in his players as seen by the recent addition of Brennan Johnson.

While Edwards would be the cheaper option of the two, we think Goncalves would suit Ange’s side better.

It remains to be seen whether Spurs make an offer for either of them or not.
