Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Nathan Ferguson from West Bromwich Albion, according to The Sun.

It has been reported that Tottenham are looking at Ferguson as a right-back option following the departure of Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid in the summer transfer window for a fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £20 million.

The 19-year-old is playing as a left-back for the Baggies at the moment, but he is a natural right-sider, and Spurs scouts have been raving about him, according to the report.

The Sun has also claimed of interest in Ferguson from Crystal Palace, with the London club claimed to be “mad keen” on the teenager.

It has been further reported that Tottenham will make a £10 million move for Ferguson.

Promising talent

Ferguson is a very talented and promising young teenager who is having a breakthrough season at West Brom.

A move to Tottenham in the January transfer window would be a massive step-up for the teenager, but the question is whether the youngster would play regularly in manager Mauricio Pochettino’s first team.
