Manchester Evening News reporter Samuel Luckhurst has dropped exciting information about a potential Manchester United transfer next summer. According to the report, Evan Ferguson is a target for United.
Manchester United Have Evan Ferguson on Their Radar
Watch: Manchester United in CRISIS – What’s Happening Under Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford?
Red Devils Could Offload Attackers
Luckhurst revealed in his report that United Anthony Martial could be on his way out of Old Trafford at the end of next season when his contract expires. The Premier League giants have an option to trigger an extension, but according to reports, the club will not take up that option.
Jadon Sancho’s future could also be in doubt after falling out with Erik ten Hag. Antony’s future is also uncertain given his off-the-field issues. This creates a situation where the three-time Champions League winners will have to reinforce their attack – and according to the English journalist, they are eyeing a move for Ferguson, who has been described as a “monster.”
United Monitoring Brighton Star Evan Ferguson
The 18-year-old striker has taken the Premier League by storm. He recently bagged his first hat trick against Newcastle. The Brighton striker is a real handful, always looking to receive the ball on the half-turn before firing in a shot. He’s direct, making him a nightmare for defenders to mark. The Irishman has signed a new contract with Brighton running until 2028. Luckhurst mentions that a move for Ferguson is possible next year.
The 20-time Premier League champions invested heavily in the striker position by signing Danish striker Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta for a transfer fee of £72 million. However, the uncertainty regarding the future of multiple attackers, including Martial – currently the only backup option at centre-forward, could pave the way for Ferguson to move to Old Trafford.
