Evan Ferguson to snub Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester United for Brighton stay

Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, and Manchester United are set to be snubbed by Evan Ferguson, who would prefer to stay at Brighton & Hove Albion for the time being.

This is according to the Sun, who states that the 18-year-old Republic of Ireland international believes a stay at the Amex will offer him a much better chance to get regular playing time and hone his skills further.

His current deal expires in the summer of 2026 (Transfermarkt). He has scored seven goals and provided three assists in 16 games across competitions for Brighton this season.

He also scored his first goal for the Republic of Ireland when they beat Latvia 3-1 in a friendly last week. Ferguson is also expected to start for his country when they face France in the Euro 2024 qualifier later today (27 March) at the Aviva Stadium.

Spurs want Ferguson?

Spurs don’t really need to bother themselves with all this right now. Our priority has to be bringing a new manager this summer who joins with a long-term picture in mind.

Only then should we start to seriously target players so that the new boss can implement his identity on the team as soon as possible. Ferguson is one of the finest attackers in the Premier League in his age bracket.

No matter who takes charge of the club, they wouldn’t mind having him on board for sure. But then again, we can’t promise the teenager any meaningful time – not with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Richarlison still in the squad.

Kane’s contract expires in the summer of 2024 and there is a chance that he could leave this summer, with Real Madrid apparently interested. But even in this case, barely any Spurs fan will vouch for Ferguson as a potential Kane replacement.

As good as he may be, the Brighton star, like our own youngsters Troy Parrott and Dane Scarlett, isn’t experienced yet to be a proven starter for a big six team. Even if Chelsea and Manchester United pursue him, it would be a surprise seeing them start him up front regularly within his first season at the club.

Hence, even if we sell Kane, Ferguson shouldn’t be a player we should prioritise. We can do better than him right now when it comes to experience.
