Fulham join race to sign Ronnie Edwards

Fulham are all set to square up with Crystal Palace and West Ham United for 20-year-old defensive sensation Ronnie Edwards.

According to a report by TEAMtalk, Fulham are quite keen on having Ronnie Edwards in their ranks. The Cottagers are looking for defensive reinforcement in the ongoing transfer window, and they are ready to battle it out with Crystal Palace and West Ham United for the services of the England youth international.

The Rise of Ronnie Edwards

Edwards came up the ranks at Barnet before joining Peterborough United in the summer of 2020. He has gone from strength to strength since making this move. Despite being just 20, he is already a mainstay in their defence and has over a hundred appearances for their first team.

He has featured in all of their League One matches this season and has even contributed with two goals. His impressive rise and huge potential have attracted a lot of attention. Numerous Premier League clubs are interested, and they are looking to prise him away from Peterborough.

Ronnie Edwards in Demand

Crystal Palace and West Ham United are two clubs that have been monitoring Edwards for a while now. Both clubs are looking to reinforce their backline and prepare for the long term. They feel the England youth international has the potential to be a special player and can help their cause.

While both Crystal Palace and West Ham are keen, they are all set to face competition from Fulham. The Cottagers are in the market for defensive reinforcement as the future of Tosin Adarabioyo is uncertain. He is in the final six months of his contract, and there are no signs of him penning down a new deal.

With Adarabioyo all set to part ways, Fulham are in desperate need of defensive reinforcement. They are admirers of Edwards and are keen on acquiring his services. Club officials of Fulham were in attendance to watch the 20-year-old centre-back in action in Peterborough’s recent clash against Leeds United in the FA Cup.

The England youth international is regarded as one of the best young players in the division and looks all set to make a move to the English top flight. While he is very important to Peterborough, they are unlikely to stand in his way and will sanction his departure for the right price. As a result, the Cottagers can surely win the race for his signatures.
