‘Concrete’ Milan and Juve Interest in Bologna Revelation Ferguson

Bologna revelation Lewis Ferguson is bound to leave the club following heightened interest from rival Serie A teams, his agent has confirmed. He joined the Rossoblu last summer for €3.5M but could leave for almost thrice that fee at the end of the season.

Speaking to British outlet Daily Record’s Off The Record podcast, Bill McMurdo revealed he ‘knows for a fact’ regarding the lingering interest from Milan and Juventus for Ferguson.

“I know for a fact there is interest there from AC Milan and Juventus. Bologna are very open about the whole thing and have kept me in the picture. I’ve got people who work for me in Italy and they’ve had a few enquiries. I reckon they’ll be looking for a minimum of £8m. Having said that, they sold Aaron Hickey for £20m and he only played 48 games for them.”

Ferguson has gradually developed into an important player, and McMurdo backed the midfielder to star in the Premier League in the future.

“I think it will happen. He deserves it. He’s had to learn the language and a new culture and he’s done very well with that. He’s very professional. I’ve dealt with a lot of good players – a lot of duds too – but he’s in a class of his own. I don’t think a Scottish club will pay the money they’ll be looking for now. If he desires it, there’s not a doubt in my mind that he will play in the English Premier League. But I think if he got an offer from a big team in Italy or Germany, he’d go there.”

The Rangers youth product is contracted with Bologna until the summer of 2026. Ferguson has 3 goals in 18 appearances for the club since joining.
