A number of West Bromwich Albion fans have taken to Twitter to comment on recent reports from The Sun suggesting that Tottenham Hotspur want Nathan Ferguson.
Ferguson has been a revelation for the Baggies this year. He went into this season still awaiting the chance to make his professional debut. But he has quickly become a stalwart of Slaven Bilic’s side.
Ferguson has made 12 Championship appearances this term. The 19-year-old has actually made more appearances at left-back, but it appears that Mauricio Pochettino could be eyeing him up as a solution to Spurs’s right-back issues.
The Sun suggested that Tottenham’s scouts have been raving about the teenager. And it is reported that a £10 million bid in January could be made.
However, it appears that the West Brom board will anger a large section of the fanbase if they allow Ferguson to leave the Hawthorns for anything like that amount.
Plenty have suggested that the Baggies need to be demanding at least £30 million for Ferguson. It remains to be seen what the West Brom hierarchy actually want for the youngster.
But it is arguably a positive sign for Tottenham that he is rated so highly. He has only made a handful of first-team appearances, but is already attracting plenty of admirers.
Here is how some of the West Brom fans reacted to the reports…
10 million no problem to me .., as long as we get Kane, Son and Vertongen as well !!!
