Why Nathan Ferguson to Tottenham would be a great piece of business

Nathan Ferguson has done a decent job at West Brom this season. The 19-year-old, who is a right-back, has played several games as a left-back too.

The English youngster has garnered interest from Crystal Palace while Tottenham are also keen on the teen, according to the Sun.

Mauricio Pochettino wants another option for the right-back position and Spurs could offer £10million for the defender (h/t Sun).

West Brom want to keep hold of the prodigy, however, they could be open to selling their rising star for the right amount in January (h/t Sun).

A much-needed option at the back

Tottenham could do with a player of Ferguson’s abilities in the January window. The 19-year-old can play on either side of the centre-backs, which is something that Spurs need.

The left-back slots are taken up by Ben Davies and Danny Rose but both players have struggled this season.

Ryan Sessegnon hasn’t played a single minute for them and could be shifted to an attacking position.

The right-back is a bigger problem area for Spurs, with Kyle Walker-Peters struggling with an injury.

Serge Aurier has not looked good this season at all and Spurs are suffering after selling Kieran Trippier in the summer.

They didn’t sign a replacement in the summer and have tried Moussa Sissoko in that position.

The youngster has been impressive for the Baggies but has to develop further if he wants to be a top talent.

Pochettino is the right man to develop English talent and his CV is filled with examples from Southampton and Tottenham.

Dele Alli is one of the best examples of a lower league star becoming world-class and it will be interesting to see if Ferguson is on the move any time soon.

Tottenham need some fresh faces to save their season and the youngster’s versatility would be a great boost to the team.

Ferguson could turn out to be the next Alli, and Pochettino could get the youngster to the next level at Spurs.

Pochettino targeted young players with potential in the summer, and that trend could continue in the upcoming transfer windows.
