Milan Accompany Juventus in Duel for Bologna Stalwart

Milan scouted Bologna linchpin Lewis Ferguson in the recent game versus Torino, while Juventus have been after him for a while. He has ideal traits to address their needs, but the Felsinei are adamant about not selling him in January, TuttoSport informs.

The Scottish midfielder would cost about half as much as the other Bianconeri’s targets Fabian Ruiz and Rodrigo De Paul, €15M. He has already scored three goals this season after hitting the net on seven occasions in the past one.

On top of Milan and Juventus, Fulham and Nottingham Forest are also keen on Ferguson. Bologna completed a swap between Nicolas Dominguez and Remo Freuler with the Tricky Trees last summer.

On the other hand, the Rossoblù have big ambitions considering their stellar start. Coach Thiago Motta has reportedly threatened to quit if the club cashes in on a cornerstone in the next window. The 24-year-old is tied to the Emilian side with a long-term contract.

Our Take on Milan, Juventus, and Ferguson

While it’s clear that the Old Lady needs somebody there, and he’d be perfect if not for the caveat that they require an addition right away, it’s interesting that the Rossoneri are in the market for a midfielder too. They can always add, but they are already deep enough, and, especially, some reinforcements are a lot more urgent in other areas. Perhaps there’s some truth in the chatter about Rade Krunic leaving.
