Tottenham Hotspur have three new rivals as they try to land Nathan Ferguson, according to The Sun.
Scouts from AC Milan, Hamburg and Marseille watched Ferguson in action last week. Representatives from these three European clubs were among the onlookers in West Bromwich Albion’s midweek draw at Wigan Athletic.
Ferguson could have floods of offers coming in soon as more clubs become aware of his situation. The 19-year-old is out of contract next summer and he is yet to agree to an extension. This has sparked the interest of Crystal Palace and Tottenham.
Spurs have been long-term admirers of the England U20 defender, who can play anywhere across the back four. His preferred position is right-back, which is an area that has caused some problems for Tottenham in the past.
West Brom want to hold onto Ferguson, who is playing an important role in the promotion push. But lots of clubs are now on his trail so the Baggies have an upcoming battle.
Ferguson has proven his worth in the Championship this season after making the step up. He already looks like one of the best full-backs in the division and he is still just a teenager.
There is no doubt that Ferguson has the potential to make it at Spurs. At such a low price, this is a move that Tottenham need to prioritise, especially with added interest now.
