Peterborough’s Gwion Edwards is now being targeted by Ipswich.

The winger scored seven goals for Posh during the 2017/18 campaign and also chipped in with five assists, as the player’s performances helped his side to a ninth place finish in League 1.

After the player’s impressive displays, he has now caught the eye of several Championship sides.

According to the East Anglian Daily Times, the Tractor Boys are one of those teams targeting Edwards.

Two other Championship teams are believed to be chasing the player’s signature, so Ipswich do face competition to sign the 25-year old.

Ipswich are a club that are currently on the lookout for a new manager but the club have identified that a winger is a position that needs adding to in the transfer window. Ipswich have Grant Ward and Danny Rowe as two players who can play in that position but they are ready to try and add another winger to their squad in Edwards.

If the Tractor Boys or any of the other interested teams do sign the Welshman, then it’ll be the first time that the player has featured in the Championship. Having started his career at Swansea, he played on loan for St Johnstone and Crawley Town before moving to the latter team on a permanent basis.

After joining Crawley and impressing, he then made his move to Peterborough, where has continued to put in some superb performances for the club.

Furthermore, the 25-year old has also represented his country at U19 and U21 level but has yet to play for the first-team.
