Evan Ferguson emerged as one of the brightest young strikers in the Premier League last season. He scored 6 goals in 10 starts in the Premier League and three more goals in the FA Cup.
The Republic of Ireland international maintained that impressive form in a great start to the new season with 4 out of 5 appearances.
Man United are one of the clubs interested in the 18-year-old, despite Ferguson committing to a long-term contract with Brighton in the summer, running until 2028.
Coach Erik ten Hag considers signing a new striker a top priority in the summer transfer window. Man United finally brought in Rasmus Hojlund in a £72m deal from Atalanta.
According to ESPN, Man United has also made an offer to buy Ferguson. However, the unreasonable price Man Utd placed on the negotiating table was quickly dismissed. Specifically, The Red Devils want to recruit Ferguson for only £50 million.
It is important to know that Brighton values Ferguson at up to 100 million pounds. According to ESPN, Man Utd’s offer was laughed at by Brighton.
