Glasgow Rangers transfer target Lewis Ferguson is set to be the subject of a third bid from Watford, according to The Scottish Sun.
The Lowdown: Ferguson wants Aberdeen exit
Ferguson recently handed in a transfer request at Aberdeen (BBC), and the Gers are duly said to be interested in capturing the 21-year-old’s services.
The Latest: Watford prepare third bid
It is now being reported that the Hornets are preparing a third bid for Ferguson after having their first two offers rejected.
Aberdeen have already confirmed that they have received an “insulting” bid from an unnamed English club for the young midfielder (STV).
The Verdict: Gers under pressure
This latest report puts the Gers under a little bit of pressure to get a deal done. While one report claimed that Ferguson is eager to join the 55-time Scottish champions, his agent has revealed that the midfielder’s dream is to play in the Premier League, a division to which Watford recently sealed promotion.
Aberdeen have stood firm so far, but there is only so long they can hold on to a player who has expressed his desire to leave. If Ross Wilson and co really want to sign Ferguson this summer, they must move quickly or else risk losing him to a persistent Watford.
