Liverpool should make record-breaking move for Ronnie Edwards

Liverpool should make a move for highly-rated defender Ronnie Edwards from EFL side Peterborough United this summer amid interest shown from several top clubs according to Liverpool.com.

Reports in the Daily Mail suggest several clubs are interested in completing a deal for the youngster who could fetch a fee of £15m which would be a record sale for Peterborough.

One of the tasks for Liverpool this summer will be to sign players for the future as well as any big names, and Edwards could make the perfect addition to Jurgen Klopp’s squad. He has been described as an “incredible talent” by his former manager Darren Ferguson.

The 19-year old joined The Posh from Barnet in 2020 and has been a regular starter for the side in the Championship this season. Unfortunately, they couldn’t avoid relegation, but that still didn’t stop Edwards from showing his quality.

Should Liverpool sign Edwards?

Yes

Yes

No

No

He has been a shining light in a struggling side, averaging an impressive passing accuracy of 89% per game. He also wins 66% of his ground duels per game and has a 73% successful dribble rate.

These stats prove that he can be aggressive as well as great on the ball, this is a key asset needed if you want to be a success in a Klopp team that is confident in possession and wants to play out from the back.

Crystal Palace are among several clubs interested in the England U19 international. This will be tough competition for Liverpool, with Palace manager Patrick Vieira showing since his return to English football, just how good he is at getting the best out of young players.

Former Chelsea defender Marc Guehi is just one example of this, and Edwards could make a great partner for him.

However, it would be hard to say no to the opportunity to play under Klopp, experience the Anfield crowd and learn from one of the best defences in football.

Liverpool also have history when it comes to signing young talents from the EFL, in 2015 they bought Joe Gomez from Charlton Athletic for £3.5m when he was just 18-years old.

He has gone on to be a key part of their success in recent years, picking up a Premier League and Champions League medal amongst others in that time.

If Edwards does move to Merseyside then he could follow in the footsteps of Gomez and be a future star for the club.
