Owner drops bombshell with Chelsea keen on £100M dea
Brighton owner Tony Bloom has revealed there is a possibility that the Seagulls may not conduct any business with CHELSEA ‘over the next two or three years’.
18-year-old striker Evan Ferguson burst onto the scene last season and earned himself a new five-year deal with the club last spring.
The Republic of Ireland international’s netted 14 league goals in just over 30 appearances for Brighton and has attracted interest from come of the Premier League’s biggest and best clubs.
Ferguson has netted a whopping four goals in four matches for the Seagulls already this season after a stunning hat-trick against Newcastle, and he is now a talent that the likes of Man City and Arsenal have been linked with in recent days.
And after his impressive start to the new season, the £100 million valued striker has now been tipped to make a move to Stamford Bridge in the coming transfer window, as the club will look to continue spending the cash.
However – Brighton have seemingly dropped a massive bombshell on the plans of Chelsea – Speaking to The Athletic, he said: “It’s possible over the next two or three years that we have no dealings with CHELSEA.
“So, for me, it’s not personal at all and each individual deal I’ve got to do what’s best for the football club first and foremost. If other clubs are interested in our head coaches, staff, players, I much prefer it that way than no one’s looking at any of our players or staff.
“So, we’re doing something very right. We do everything we can to keep our best players, but we know in the way of the world that won’t always be the case.”
