“…makes a deal possible.” – Club insider urges Tottenham to make a move for Brighton star

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham are actively seeking a new centre-forward in the upcoming transfer window as they aim to fill the void left by Harry Kane’s departure.

A number of attacking options have been linked with a move inlcuding the likes of Ivan Toney, Santiago Gimenez, and Jonathan David.

However, according to club insider John Wenham, Spurs should prioritise the signing of Brighton’s young forward Evan Ferguson.

Wenham suggests that Tottenham should make a bid of £50 million to secure the services of the Irish international.

Although Ferguson’s presence in the Premier League last season was quiet, with him netting 6 goals across 27 appearances, of which he started only 15 games.

Speaking exclusively to Tottenham News, Wenham argues that despite the teenager’s modest goal-scoring figures, his potential remains considerable. He suggested that playing alongside better teammates could boost his performance.

He proposes that Ferguson’s recent low-key form could render him a financially viable option, offering Tottenham a tactical edge. Wenham commented:

“One player we aren’t hearing much about at the moment is Ferguson. I do just wonder if it would be wise to make a £50million offer to Brighton.

“Ferguson has had a quiet year, but for me his talent is undeniable. Around better players, he would continue to score.

“I think he’s an outstanding player and I reckon his quiet season will have brought his price down, which makes a deal possible.”

Under Ange Postecoglou’s management, Ferguson might flourish playing alongside the likes of Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski, and James Maddison.

Securing the 19-year-old at a potentially reduced price could turn out to be a smart move, advantageous for both the player and the club in the long term.

Evan Ferguson committed his future to the Seagulls by signing a substantial contract extension last November, which binds him to the club until the summer of 2029.

With a remarkable market value of €60 million, the young striker is regarded as a promising talent with the potential to become a notable #9 in football.
