CHELSEA have reportedly bid for Evan Ferguson – the Brighton striker also admired by Arsenal.

Reports in the media that the club could try and make a move for Victor Osimhen in the January window, a man that they wanted to sign in the summer window and a striker that is easily regarded as one of the best in the game.

He has been in contract talks with Napoli for quite some time now, but has been unable to agree a new contract as the Italians are playing hard-ball and do not want to offer him the kind of deal that he feels he fully deserves.

However, the deal was signed just last month and he has now agreed to stay at Napoli until the summer of 2026, and has a release clause of £112 million.

And the news could mean that we switch their attentions to the impressive Ferguson

The Republic of Ireland international is one of the most talked about talents in the game and already has the likes of Man City, Liverpool and Tottenham all keeping a very close eye on his development.

And after his impressive start to the new season, Football Transfers claim the club hoped to pounce for the 19-year-old on loan as he’s often been on the bench this season after his explosive form last term.

But it’s also said that the Seagulls quickly rejected the advances. Ferguson is on a long-term contract and Brighton rate him at around £100million.

There is alot of hype surrounding the talents of Ferguson – he is really a young striker that has the ability to be a 20 goals a season striker – if he makes the right decisions in the game.
