According to talkSPORT, Tottenham remain interested in Evan Ferguson, with Ange Postecoglou said to be a big fan of the Brighton starlet.

It was reported by TEAMtalk two weeks ago that Spurs have explored a potential move for Ferguson following Harry Kane’s departure to Bayern Munich.

The outlet explained that it would be a ‘tough deal’ for Tottenham to pull off as the South Coast club have ‘little appetite’ for any approach for Fergusson.

The report added that Spurs, nevertheless, did their ‘due diligence’ on various options to replace Kane, which is why they wanted to check on the Republic of Ireland international.

Last week, Goal reported that Brighton had put an eye-water £120m price tag on the young striker to ward off interest from Tottenham and other suitors.

Brighton’s £120m asking price has now also been backed up by talkSPORT but they insist that Spurs have not ended their interest in the player just yet.

The report adds that the 19-year-old remains the North London club’s preferred long-term replacement for Kane, with Postecoglou said to be a ‘big admirer’ of the centre-forward.

The publication asserts that Spurs have so far held off making a move for Ferguson this summer as they are aware that the Seagulls are determined to keep the 19-year-old at the Amex Stadium.

Ferguson has many admirers across the Premier League as the youngster appears to be a complete centre-forward with very few weaknesses. I would not be surprised if one of the big clubs break the British transfer record to sign the teenager next summer, which is why he is likely out of Tottenham’s price range.
