Atletico Madrid have entered the race to sign highly-rated West Bromwich Albion defender Nathan Ferguon, say reports.
The 19-year-old has started 12 of Albion’s first 13 Championship matches this campaign and has quickly emerged as a rising star in English football.
The left-back – who is naturally right-footed and is said to be tactically adaptable – had been linked earlier this week with a move to Tottenham, who are said to be hopeful of renovating their defence next year.
However, a report in The Sun now claims that Atleti and Italian champions Juventus have both entered the running for the highly promising Englishman.
The teenager could become the second English defender to join Los Rojiblancos in the space of a year, after Kieran Trippier joined the club from Spurs this summer.
The reports have claimed that Ferguson would cost in the region of €10m to be landed from the Baggies.
