Watford have seen a bid in the region of £2million rejected by Aberdeen for Lewis Ferguson, according to a recent report from The Scottish Sun.
Ferguson has caught the eye with some strong performances for the Scottish club this season, as they finished fourth in the Scottish Premiership.
He has been with Aberdeen since 2018, having previously been on the books with Hamilton Academical in the early stages of his career.
The Scottish Sun also claim that Rangers have also been monitoring Ferguson, with Watford potentially being set to make their second offer for the midfielder.
Whilst Dons manager Stephen Glass has previously revealed that Ferguson is loving life with Aberdeen, and that it would take a sizeable offer to prize him away from them.
“I don’t need to convince Lewis to stay — he loves it at the club. If someone comes in for him, they are going to need a lot of money to get him away from here.”
A move to Watford could tempt Ferguson this summer as well, with the Hornets preparing for life back in the Premier League, whilst under the management of Xisco Munoz.
Watford finished this year’s campaign second in the Championship, as they returned to the top-flight at the first time of asking, following their relegation in the 2019/20 season.
Munoz will be hoping that he can add to his squad during the summer transfer window, with Ferguson clearly being a player that the club are keen on signing in the near future.
It remains to be seen as to whether Aberdeen are willing to sell him though, with the Scottish side already rejecting a bid for his services.
Can you score full marks on this end of season Watford quiz?
It’ll be interesting to see if he’s keen on a move elsewhere.
Glass’ recent comment seem to suggest that Ferguson won’t be heading anywhere else anytime soon, but a move to the Premier League is likely to tempt any player.
With Rangers also keen on a deal to land his signature, it’s going to be an almighty transfer tussle between them and Watford this summer.
But Watford are clearly keen to get their man here, and I can see the Hornets winning the race to sign him ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
