Glen Johnson, a former Chelsea defender, is urging his old club to make a move for Brighton star Evan Ferguson, potentially hijacking Manchester City’s interest in the young player.
At just 18 years old, Ferguson has been impressing in the Premier League with his physicality and goal-scoring ability.
Many clubs are interested in signing him, with recent reports suggesting he could be valued at over £120 million.
Manchester City has been linked with Ferguson, looking to pair him with star striker Erling Haaland.
However, Johnson believes that Chelsea and Liverpool should also make a move for the talented youngster.
He believes Ferguson would have a better chance of breaking into the first team at Chelsea or Liverpool compared to Manchester City.
Johnson highlights the rarity of young goal-scorers in the Premier League and understands why top clubs would be interested in Ferguson.
The addition of Ferguson could potentially solve Chelsea’s goal-scoring issues, but it would come at a significant price.
