A lot was expected of Tottenham Hotspur wonderkid Marcus Edwards, who could be heading for the North London exit door this summer.

Tottenham haven't been too busy in recent transfer windows, but it seems they are now being as busy as ever and as ruthless as ever.

The Daily Mail have recently claimed that Tottenham wonderkid Marcus Edwards is one of eight players manager Mauricio Pochtettino has put up for sale this summer.

Versatile attacker Edwards has been spoken around White Hart Lane for some time now, but that could soon be coming to an end with his potential departure.

 

The 20-year-old made his debut three years ago as a teenager when Pochettino brought him on for a brief period in an EFL Cup clash against Gillingham.

Many felt that Edwards would kick on from there and take his game to the next level, but it seemingly hasn't worked that way.

An unforgeable loan spell at Norwich didn't help his cause, but his recent stint in the Eredivisie proved that he is heading in the right direction.

Therefore, Pochettino might regret selling the natural winger on a permanent basis because he might just come back to haunt him and the club.

A loan deal would have surely sufficed, and at the age of 20, he should have been given more time to prove his maturity, which in tune would have helped his game.

If Edwards can find the right ingredients, both on the pitch and off it, then he'll be a dangerous prospect to many.

But given that Spurs could seemingly be parting ways from him, they could be dropping him off a little early because he might just catch the London club up and prove them wrong in years to come.
