Nottingham Forest should target Tottenham 18-year-old star after reported transfer boost
COMMENT By Dominic Toner
Nottingham Forest should try and complete a deal for Tottenham ace Marcus Edwards in the summer transfer window.
The Evening Standard report that at least one Spurs youngster is set to move to the City Ground before the start of next season.
It is understood that manager Mark Warburton has a good relationship with Spurs’ head of coaching and development John McDermott, which is likely to pave the way for player transfers.
Forest should prioritie emerging star Edwards, who is expected to become a first team player at White Hart Lane in the future.
The 18-year-old has made just one senior appearance for Spurs so far, but has been in scintillating form for the club’s Under-23s side.

The right winger is blessed with great technical ability and is also a member of England’s Under-19s set-up.
Forest would be wise to move for the attacking maestro as he could bring a bit of star quality to their side next season.
The Midlands club are still fighting relegation next season, but Warburtons’s side do have a five point cushion above the drop zone.
Spurs will know how beneficial a loan move away from White Hart Lane can be for their young players, with Harry Kane the perfect example of the system working.
Edwards is being tipped to be the next breakthrough star from the north London club and Forest should weigh in with a move in the summer.
