Ange Postecoglou’s Tottenham Hotspur tried to sign Evan Ferguson in the summer transfer window. The Brighton and Hove Albion striker’s performance with Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United on Saturday evening makes us understand why.
Tottenham Hotspur were strongly connected with Brighton and Hove Albion striker Evan Ferguson when the transfer window was open.
TEAMtalk said in August 2023 that Tottenham had enquired about a possible deal for the striker.
The Seagulls did not want to sell the 18-year-old Republic of Ireland international, based on the report they gave to the public.
Tottenham Hotspur Target Evan Ferguson Scores Hat-trick vs. Newcastle United
Former Tottenham striker Gary Lineker came out to tell Spurs to sign the striker right away. The BBC Match of the Day presenter said on X (formerly known as Twitter) that Tottenham should secure the services of Ferguson as a replacement for Harry Kane.
In the summer transfer window, England international striker Kane moved to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich from Tottenham.
Ferguson did not make a move from Brighton when the window was open. And tonight, he scored a surprising hat-trick against Newcastle. They finished in the top four of the Premier League table last season and will play in the UEFA Champions League.
The Republic of Ireland international striker scored in the 27th, 65th and 70th minutes. And Lineker was impressed.
Again, Ferguson has made twenty-four appearances in the Premier League so far. The young striker has scored ten goals and given two assists in those games. Now, let us take a ride into another sensational development.
‘Sensational’: Gary Lineker Wowed by 26-year-old Tottenham Hotspur Player
Gary Lineker has talked wildly about Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder James Maddison. He said this on Twitter while watching him in action against Burnley at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
The former Tottenham Hotspur striker was impressed by James Maddison’s goal against Burnley. The England international attacking midfielder scored in the 54th minute against Burnley with a finish inside the right-hand post.
Maddison has been playing well for Tottenham this season since his move from Leicester City in the summer transfer window.
Maddison has made four appearances in the Premier League so far this season. He has scored two goals and given two assists in those matches.
Gary Lineker’s Praise for James Maddison During Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley
While he was still on the field playing at Turf Moor, Maddison, in a clean record, took four shots, played one straight pass, and had a pass accuracy of 82 percent. That is not all. He took 72 touches, attempted three dribbles, made one good interception, and put in four crosses. Awesome!
Tottenham finally found someone they can replace for Christian Eriksen in James Maddison. Although Eriksen was one of the best players in Tottenham’s recent history, he was a very brilliant player for the North London club.
Spurs really struggled to replace him, but now they have Maddison. Maddison is only 26 now. His best years are ahead of him. Tottenham have a real gem in Maddison.
