Chelsea monitoring Brighton striker

Chelsea are one of a number of clubs monitoring the progress of Brighton striker Evan Ferguson.

Despite being just 19, Ferguson has made a name for himself as one of the most exciting emerging talents in the Premier League, having scored 11 goals in 30 senior appearances for the Seagulls so far.

He is also already an established Republic of Ireland international.

Earlier this month, he agreed a new contract with Brighton that ties him to the Amex Stadium until 2029.

However, despite that, the list of potential suitors continues to grow, with both Manchester clubs among them.

Anybody wanting to buy him will need deep pockets, however, with Brighton already having slapped a ₤115 million valuation on his head.

That is unlikely to deter Chelsea, though, who have shown their willingness to spend big when it comes to their main transfer targets, and who have already paid Brighton a British record fee for midfielder Moises Caicedo.
