Having initially committed to a five-year contract with Brighton last April, Ferguson further solidified his ties to the club by signing an extension just seven months later.

Throughout his tenure with Brighton, Ferguson has amassed a commendable record, featuring in 60 games and netting a total of 16 goals while also providing 6 assists.

Despite Arsenal’s rumored interest in acquiring world-class strikers such as Victor Osimhen, Viktor Gyokeres, Ivan Toney, and Dusan Vlahovic, it appears that Ferguson has emerged as a top target for manager Mikel Arteta. The 19-year-old’s potential has certainly caught Arteta’s eye, with the Gunners reportedly viewing him as one of their preferred choices for bolstering their attacking lineup.

Brighton values Ferguson highly, with reports suggesting that they have placed a hefty price tag on him, setting a potential transfer fee that could potentially break British records. This valuation underscores the club’s determination to retain their prized asset while also highlighting Ferguson’s status as a sought-after prospect in the footballing world.


As the summer transfer window approaches, all eyes will be on Arsenal as they navigate their pursuit of Evan Ferguson. With competition likely to be fierce for his signature, securing his services would undoubtedly be a significant coup for the Gunners, signaling their ambition to assemble a formidable squad capable of competing at the highest levels of European football.
