Brighton and Hove Albion are set to demand a record breaking British transfer fee for any potential deal involving their young sensation, Evan Ferguson.
The striker’s rising profile in European football has caught the attention of big clubs, including Manchester United, as reported by Football Insider.
The Red Devils are eyeing Ferguson to strengthen their attack and provide support for Rasmus Hojlund.
A lifelong United supporter, Ferguson has recently extended his contract with Brighton until 2029, indicating the club’s determination to keep him despite interest from other top Premier League teams.
Brighton’s history of high-profile player sales, including Marc Cucurella, Yves Bissouma, Alexis Mac Allister, and Moises Caicedo – who moved to Chelsea for a British-record £115 million – suggests they are no strangers to big transfers.
According to TeamTalk, Brighton expects a record-breaking sum (more than £115 million) for the 19-year-old Irish forward, potentially making him the most expensive player in English football history. Ferguson has been impressive since his arrival from Bohemians in 2021, scoring 11 league goals.
