Premier League duo Fulham and Nottingham Forest are reportedly showing an interest in Bologna midfielder Lewis Ferguson.

Fulham and Nottingham Forest are reportedly interested in signing Bologna midfielder Lewis Ferguson.

The 24-year-old has made a significant impression since joining the Italian club from Aberdeen in the summer of 2022.

Ferguson made 32 Serie A appearances during his first season in Italy, chipping in with seven goals to help his side achieve a top-half finish.

The Scotsman has continued to be a regular feature in Thiago Motta's side this season, having started all 13 league games, registering three goals and three assists.

After making a name for himself with the Serie A side, Ferguson is now attracting interest from a number of clubs ahead of the January transfer window.

According to Italian outlet Tuttosport, Fulham and Nottingham Forest are both keeping tabs on the Scotland international.

The report suggests that the two Premier League clubs have been long-term admirers of Ferguson and are continuing to monitor his situation.

However, should either of the two clubs opt to pursue a move, they could face significant competition from Italian giants Juventus.

There is a belief that the record Serie A winners are leading the race to secure Ferguson's signature in the January window.

Juventus are keen to bring in midfield reinforcements, with Nicolo Fagioli serving a seventh-month gambling ban, while Paul Pogba is awaiting his punishment for a doping violation.

Ferguson seemingly caught Juventus' attention when he found the net in Bologna's 1-1 draw against Massimiliano Allegri's side in August.

Juventus sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli was reportedly in attendance to see Ferguson score the winner in a 1-0 victory over Lazio earlier this month.

Although Ferguson is under contract until at least June 2027, there is a suggestion that Juventus could strike a deal for around €15m (£13m).

However, Bologna are reluctant to sanction a sale in the middle of the season, especially as the sixth-placed side are currently in the hunt for European football.
