Tottenham Hotspur target Evan Ferguson told to stay at Brighton and Hove Albion
Ferdinand believes that the Republic of Ireland international striker would develop a lot at Brighton.
TEAMtalk has reported that Tottenham want to sign Ferguson from Brighton this summer.
Tottenham want the teenage striker to replace Harry Kane, who has left for Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
TEAMtalk has claimed that Tottenham have enquired about a potential deal for Ferguson.
Ferdinand said about Ferguson: “He is going to have a big career, Ferguson.”
The pundit added: “I think it’s best for him, forget the clubs, it’s best for him where he is. Get more game time, hone his craft, he is 18 years old. Huge talent.”
We believe that Evan Ferguson should stay at Brighton and Hove Albion and not move to Tottenham Hotspur in the summer transfer window.
There would be massive pressure on the 18-year-old if he went to Spurs and was heralded as the replacement for Harry Kane.
Kane is a world-class striker, and it would be tough for anyone to fill his boots.
Ferguson is only 18 and is still developing as a player.
There is no need for him to switch clubs at this stage of his career, especially when you see how good Brighton are with their young players.
Ferguson has made 21 appearances in the Premier League so far in his career.
The striker has scored seven goals and given two assists in those matches.
