One of West Brom’s rising stars could about to be embroiled in a January transfer saga as interest begins to ramp up onto another spectrum.
Nathan Ferguson has only just broken into first-team stardom up in the west Midlands, but his early-season form has attracted the interest of Europe’s elite as well as a few teams in the Premier League.
Originally it was Crystal Palace who showed interest as they look to fill the void left behind by Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and now they have been joined by the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, Atletico Madrid, and Juventus – if reports are to be believed.

The 19-year-old started life out as a centre-back amongst Albion’s youth ranks, but he began the season at right-back before shifting to the left-hand side of the defence in Kieran Gibbs’ absence.
Ferguson has performed so well in the role that he has kept the former Arsenal man out of the starting lineup since his return from injury.
Several of the Hawthorns faithful have been debating his potential exit, and many seem to believe that every player has his price with the promising defender being no different.
One supporter claimed sporting and technical director Luke Dowling could use any fee to unearth more gems while another said they could go out and buy Mason Holgate as a replacement – his impact from last season is clearly still in the minds of some.
A further member of the Albion crowd said he would ‘1000%’ sell Ferguson for the right price as people seem to forget that the club still has Gibbs with one more labelling the club as ‘crazy’ if they were to not sell the youngster.
Here’s the best of the reaction:
100%, that money can be so useful, with Dowling and co. they’ll unearth some more gems obvs ?

I think it would be sensible to take that kind of money we could buy holgate…

Considering he’s out of contract in the summer I’d take it

Yes, all day, everyday, as brilliant as he has been I think back to berahino and the way a promising young player can go down hill fast, that being said I’d take them for all I could.

If we had a 30 mil bid then yeah, but not the 10 mil quoted by media. I’d accept 20 mil at this stage.

In that circumstance we would be crazy not to.
