Tottenham may wait till summer to sign West Brom’s Nathan Ferguson
Jose Mourinho is interested in the young Englishman, who has made 18 appearances for the Baggies this season, notching up 1 goal and 1 assist (h/t The Sun).
Ferguson will be out of contract in the summer, with the Baggies desperate to keep him at the club. The player has been offered a contract but it seems that talks have stalled between his representatives and the club (h/t Athletic).
A key position for Tottenham
With Keiran Trippier having left the club and Danny Rose out of favour, Serge Aurier and Jan Vertonghem have occupied the full-back positions under Mourinho.
Aurier is an unreliable defender prone to losing his head while Vertonghen lacks pace and will be out of contract in the summer. With the full-back position in dire straits, there will be a spot open for Nathan Ferguson in the squad come next season.
Ferguson can play on both flanks and this should appeal to the Tottenham manager, who must rebuild his defence.

With a massive rebuild being planned at Spurs, a deal for Ferguson will have to wait till the summer. That said, signing the youngster would represent a massive coup for us.
