Alan Shearer believes that Manchester City will undoubtedly express interest in Brighton’s young talent, Evan Ferguson. That is at some point in the future. He also isn’t surprised to hear that there is reportedly already some interest from the club in the player.
The teenager has made a significant impact for the Seagulls in recent times and has left a lasting impression with his performances.
Reports from last week suggested that Manchester City is already keeping a close watch on the Republic of Ireland striker. Alan Shearer, the Premier League’s all-time leading goalscorer, has now shared his thoughts on Ferguson. He envisions him donning a Manchester City jersey in the future.
What did Alan Shearer say about Ferguson?
According to Alan Shearer, there is a significant likelihood that Manchester City will make a move for the 18-year-old, even though they already have Erling Haaland in their ranks.
It’s possible that Manchester City might have to pay a British record fee. That is if they intend to secure the services of this young player. Alan Shearer describes as “a very special talent” and predicts will become a “superstar within a couple of years.”
Alan Shearer further said: “It’s no surprise Manchester City are reportedly among the clubs watching him. It would be more of a surprise if they were not.
The prospect of Ferguson moving to the Etihad in a few years would indeed be remarkable. He is on a trajectory to become an exceptionally talented player. Considering Brighton’s strong stance on selling players, there’s little doubt that he would command a significant transfer fee if a move were to materialize.
