West Ham launch bid for Peterborough starlet Ronnie Edwards

West Ham United have formally tabled an offer to secure the services of Ronnie Edwards from Peterborough United, according to Standard Sport.

Negotiations are underway between the two clubs to determine the fee to facilitate the move. 

West Ham manager David Moyes is keen to bolster his defence with another addition and has turned to the 20-year-old.

Edwards has garnered substantial attention as a promising defender. He contributed to England’s Under-19 European Championship victory last summer.

He also recently represented the Three Lions at the U20 World Cup, and his skills have not gone unnoticed.

Chelsea and Crystal Palace were reportedly interested in him last year, but nothing materialised. However, he could be on the move this summer.

Edwards’ omission from Peterborough’s League Cup victory over Portsmouth last night has fuelled speculation about his future. 

While Moyes has already secured Konstantinos Mavropanos this summer, he is keen on covering the injury-prone nature of his centre-back options by adding Edwards.

West Ham want to sign another attacker, and talks are ongoing with Corinthians for Yuri Alberto. 

Tim Steidten is in Brazil to sign the attacker as they look for reinforcements following the departure of Gianluca Scamacca, Nikola Vlasic and Manuel Lanzini.

However, both parties have yet to agree a fee for the 22-year-old. Personal terms will not be a problem.

West Ham are also pursuing Paris Saint-Germain forward Hugo Ekitike, although Eintracht Frankfurt hold the upper hand in the race for the striker.

PSG want Frankfurt’s Randal Kolo Muani and are eager to include Ekitike in the deal.
