it’s very likely – Top transfer Journalist claims Man United are ready to move for £100m Brighton striker

Evan Ferguson is one of Manchester United’s striker targets, according to reports.

The Reds are interested in signing Brighton starlet Evan Ferguson, but journalist Ben Jacobs believes his asking price could prove to be a stumbling block.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jacobs said: “Evan Ferguson is a possibility, along with a number of other strikers that are being looked at by Manchester United. With Ferguson, the price could well be a stumbling block.

“It’s going to be difficult for Manchester United to find that £100m or so for any one player in any position without outgoings first, which is why we may not know a clearer picture until after the 30th June.

“Brighton don’t put valuations on players. So the feeling that Ferguson is £100m is based upon age, potential, profile, demand, and the fact that relatively recently, he signed a new deal. So Brighton are well protected.

“Then add to that how they handled the Moises Caicedo exit, and it’s logical to think that nobody is going to get Evan Ferguson on the cheap.”

United’s lack of goals this season means signing a striker could be considered one of the club’s priorities.

We will be waving goodbye to Anthony Martial at the end of the season, while Rasmus Hojlund will be left as the only recognised centre-forward in the squad.

Hojlund has time on his side to become an even better striker. That’s why United need to provide the young Dane with competition to enhance his development.

Ferguson has scored 6 goals and registered 1 assist in 27 league games this season, as per Transfermarkt.

I would be shocked if United signed Ferguson this summer due to the amount of money Brighton would demand for his signature.

It seems more probable that we’ll sign an experienced striker to provide competition as well as back-up for Hojlund.

Ferguson would be a brilliant signing last year, but we’ve got too many areas to solve in the team before we spend £100m+ on another striker.
