Report: Rangers set sights on 20y/o as possible Kamara replacement
Rangers are plotting a move for Aberdeen youngster Lewis Ferguson, according to the Scottish Sun.
The report says that manager Steven Gerrard is “bracing himself” for big-money offers for Glen Kamara in January and that Ferguson could be the replacement.
Earlier this year, Ferguson signed a two-year extension to his contract and committed his future to Aberdeen until 2024.
Back then he said, “It was an easy decision. As everyone can see, I am loving life up in Aberdeen and enjoying every bit of it.”
However, there are links to Rangers – he’s the son of former Rangers man Derek Ferguson and the nephew of title-winner Barry.
Then there’s the chance of starring in the Rangers revolution under Gerrard, which must be sorely tempting for any young player in Scotland.
20-year-old Ferguson, who came up through the youth ranks at Hamilton, before making a move to Aberdeen for £239k in the summer of 2018, has been a big hit.
The midfielder has scored 10 goals and added 13 assists in 62 games for the club and is a current Scotland Under-21 international.
Gerrard won’t want to lose Kamara midway through the season, and Derek McInnes will be keeping a very interested eye on Ibrox when the transfer window opens.
He won’t want to lose Ferguson either but as ever in Scotland, big money could force both sales through.
