In the search for a new striker this summer, Manchester United has explored many options for that position. However, despite the great interest in signing Harry Kane, there is also a name that has been mentioned, the player, in this case, is Evan Ferguson. The Irish striker 18 years old that is currently playing for Brighton.
In the current season, the young striker has played a total amount of 27 games, delivering 14 goals and helping his team with 5 assists. His market value risis up to 10 million dollars.
How could this transfer be possible?
This transfer could happen if Kane decided either to stay at Tottenham or leave for another club, so the first option to help Marcus Rashford in the attack will be the Irish striker. Remember that Wout Weghorst, will not continue at the club once his loan is finished, and Anthony Martial, has a foot away from the team because if an offer comes that seems attractive, the club will not hesitate to sell him.
What will Manchester United win with this player?
This player is known for his incredible finishing and good technic. The numbers he has to make this season, support this opinion about the 18-year-old, who would be a good change for the Red Devils. Making him the replacement of Marcus Rashford, because, in his last match, he couldn’t end the game against Fulham, due to an injury provoked during the game.
Also, with his 1.83 centimetres height, he is set to be a very agile player, that has the chance to dribble the defence by using both his agility and his technique. Erik Ten Hag wants him as a second option in the United’s attack. He is thought-out for plans that the Dutch coach has for the future of this team.
What’s the downside of this possible signing?
Two things could complicate this deal. The first one is the renovation that Brighton has offered Ferguson to stay at the club, and if the player agrees to the contract, he will not be an option anymore. And the second problem is interest of Tottenham for Evan’s services.
