Fulham and Nottingham Forest both ‘came forward’ for Bologna star Lewis Ferguson in recent months, with a move in the summer transfer window looking increasingly likely.

That’s according to Tuttosport, relayed by Il Bianconero, who say the midfielder is also being looked at by Juventus as they look to rebuild their squad.

Ferguson has been impressing for Bologna since arriving from Aberdeen in July 2022, establishing himself as a key player under Thiago Motta.

This season he’s managed five goals and four assists in 25 games in Serie A and that hasn’t gone unnoticed around Europe.

Fulham and Nottingham Forest have both been credited with an interest in him for some time, with it reported in November that they were both hovering and looking at a potential €15m bargain deal.

Tuttosport now back that up somewhat, reporting that Juventus are showing an interest in Ferguson as they know they have to move for at least one midfielder in the coming months.

Ferguson is a player they are looking at thanks to his impressive performances for Bologna, which have helped push them up the table and into fourth.

The Italian giants are not the only side keen, though, as Fulham and Nottingham Forest both ‘came forward’ to ask about him.

Bologna’s sports director Giovanni Sartori ‘rubs his hands’ because of this, valuing the midfielder at €20-25m, offering a major profit on a player who cost just €4m.

Whether Fulham or Nottingham Forest, particularly the latter given their PSR issues, would be willing to pay such a figure remains to be seen, but the interest is there ahead of the summer nonetheless.
