West Brom want clarity over Tottenham target Nathan Ferguson’s future with the January Transfer Window now only a few days away.

The Sun recently reported that Spurs were interested and had sent scouts to watch the young full-back.

The Championship side have offered a five-year contract to Ferguson with his current deal set to expire in the summer (The Athletic).

Jose Mourinho will be eager to improve his backline after only keeping one clean sheet since his arrival, conceding 17 goals in 10 games (Whoscored).

If the 19-year-old fails to sign a new contract, Spurs will have the opportunity in January to buy him on the cheap or wait until the summer for a free transfer.

As quoted by Express & Star, West Brom director Luke Dowling wants to know Ferguson’s plan with the January transfer window only a few days away.

“We will be looking for clarity from Nathan Ferguson and his advice about whether or not he wants to stay with us.

“All I can say at this stage is that I am confident we can find the terms that would make sense to Nathan at his stage of his career – and that we all believe that his pathway at Albion remains the most advantageous to him.”

Serge Aurier has featured the most under Jose Mourinho at right-back as Kyle Walker-Peters continues to struggle for game-time.

Nathan Ferguson has made 19 appearances so far this season in the Championship, featuring at right-back and centre-back (Transfermarkt).

Spurs Web Opinion

Currently, Spurs are lacking depth at right-back. Serge Aurier is the only real option with Kyle Walker-Peters not deemed good enough. Nathan Ferguson has done extremely well at West Brom and can play in any position across the back four. With the potential of leaving on the cheap in January, Spurs should be all over it.
