Chelsea looking to gain advantage in Evan Ferguson chase

Chelsea are keen on signing the Brighton and Hove Albion striker Evan Ferguson.

A report from Football Insider claims that Chelsea have close ties with the Brighton recruitment staff and they are well-informed on the 19-year-old striker. Apparently, they are keeping close tabs on the striker’s situation, and they will look to use the inside knowledge to seal his signing.

The player has been linked with Manchester United as well and it remains to be seen whether Chelsea can beat their Premier League rivals to his signature. The Republic of Ireland international has five goals across all competitions this season and he is regarded as one of the most promising young talents in English football right now.

He has the potential to develop into a top-class Premier League striker and Chelsea would do well to secure his services. It is no secret that the Blues need to improve their attacking unit and they need to sign a prolific goalscorer. Although the 19-year-old is still quite young, he has the potential to play for the biggest clubs, and he could prove to be a solid, long-term investment.

Ferguson is more than just a goalscorer and he will add creativity and hold-up play to the Chelsea attack as well. With the right coaching, he could develop into a world-class player.

Mauricio Pochettino could be the ideal manager for him right now. The Argentine has done well to nurture young players throughout his managerial career and he could help the Republic of Ireland international develop as well.

The former Tottenham manager was instrumental in the development of Harry Kane and he could play a similar role in the case of Ferguson as well.

Meanwhile Manchester United need more attacking depth and Ferguson could compete with Rasmus Hojlund for the starting spot if they sign him. Both clubs have the financial resources to get the deal done and they are one of the biggest clubs in the world. The 19-year-old could be tempted to join them if there is a concrete proposal on the table. It will be interesting to see how the situation develops over the next few months.
