Milan interested in this newly rising youngster

36

AC Milan are the latest club to show an interest in West Brom’s Nathan Ferguson who is out of contract at The Hawthorns in the summer.

The 19-year-old has enjoyed a brilliant breakthrough campaign for the Baggies, starring since he was handed his debut against Nottingham Forest on the opening day.

Worryingly for the Baggies though, his deal expires at the end of the summer and the likes of Crystal Palace and Tottenham are said to be interested in the full-back.

And, according to the Sun, the Italian giants have joined the race for the player, having sent scouts to watch the player recently, including in the midweek draw at Wigan.

Under FIFA rules, Ferguson would be able to agree a deal with Milan, or any other foreign side, on a pre-contract in the New Year ahead of next season and Albion would only be entitled to minimal compensation.

The defender played the full 90 minutes yesterday as the Baggies came from 2-1 down to beat local rivals Birmingham City 3-2 to move to the top of the Championship.
