Report: Liverpool learn asking price for Sporting Lisbon attacker as Michael Edwards ready to sign new attackers for Liverpool…



Liverpool receive information on the desired fee for the Sporting Lisbon attacker, while Michael Edwards, the club’s representative, gears up to acquire fresh attacking talent for Liverpool.


Liverpool have reportedly been informed of the price tag associated with acquiring the services of Marcus Edwards, the winger from Sporting Lisbon.


The Premier League team is currently striving to finish the season on a positive note, although recent losses to Atalanta BC and Crystal Palace at Anfield have cast doubt on their aspirations.


Nonetheless, efforts are underway behind the scenes to determine the club’s future direction once Jurgen Klopp departs at the conclusion of the season.


In addition to their endeavors to extend Mohamed Salah’s contract beyond 2025, another key objective is to secure a suitable successor for the managerial position.


Recent reports have indicated that Sporting boss Ruben Amorim is currently the leading candidate for the role, despite his public statements regarding speculation. This has led to suggestions that Liverpool may consider signing one of Amorim’s current Sporting players, who are on track to win the Primeira Liga title.


While centre-back Goncalo Inacio seems like the most obvious choice, it is also possible that Liverpool may pursue a deal for former Tottenham Hotspur youngster Edwards.


According to Football Insider, Liverpool will have the opportunity to sign Edwards for a fee of £30m starting from June.


In terms of performance, Edwards has not had his best season, contributing only five goals and four assists in league and European matches.


Despite this, the 25-year-old has excelled as a player for Sporting since joining in 2022, contributing 21 goals and 25 assists in 107 games.


Could a transfer for Edwards be feasible?

Considering other players with similar profiles and price tags, Edwards might not be the top choice for Liverpool supporters if they decide to bolster their attacking options.


However, the strong bond between Amorim and Edwards could play a crucial role, and Liverpool’s interest may depend on Amorim’s potential move to Anfield.


His former team, Spurs, have also shown interest in re-signing their former academy player, who only made one appearance before leaving.


If either or both clubs show interest in Edwards, it could attract bids from other clubs, especially since he will have just two years remaining on his contract.
