Man United have eyes on Evan Ferguson, who could be available for transfer next summer.
Manchester United Football Club have made one big-money striker signing this summer in the form of Rasmus Hojlund.
The young forward has looked good in small glimpses so far, though he will now be given a real run in the team following injury.
The Old Trafford side should never settle. Hence, a move to bring in another striker next summer is among the ‘significant signings’ targeted. The Reds also intend to strengthen at full-back, centre-back and central midfield. That’s according to the Manchester Evening News.
In the striker department, Evan Ferguson is among the names being eyed. According to the report, United are ‘monitoring’ the talented Premier League striker, who has looked good for Brighton recently.
There is a belief that Ferguson ‘could be transferred’ next summer, though he did recently sign a contract until 2028 to protect his value. With that in mind, coupled with Brighton’s tough negotiation tactics, the Red Devils will have to cough up pretty handsome money to get a deal done.
Ferguson looks tailor-made to play for United. He fits the profile and word on the street is that he’s a massive Reds fan. If there’s one club he’d love to move to in future, it’s the 20-time Premier League champions.
A lot can change between now and then, though patience is running thin with Anthony Martial. There’s a belief the could ‘could release’ the Frenchman if his stagnation continues. That could be the opening the club need to go out there and bring in Ferguson.
Although by that point, this will likely be another £100m signing, it’s one that offers longevity.
It’ll be interesting to watch Ferguson closely as Brighton visit Old Trafford this coming Saturday.
