It wouldn’t be a transfer window without Rangers being linked to Lewis Ferguson but this time around it’s the Continent and not Ibrox which is reportedly calling the Aberdeen star.

The son of Derek and nephew of Barry, Scotland international Lewis Ferguson is widely regarded as one of the top talents in the Scottish Premiership and it’s hard to believe the midfielder is still only 22-years-old.

But now it looks unlikely that Rangers will be the player’s next destination amid reports the player will leave Aberdeen this summer with four European clubs interested in his services.

The Daily Mail [print edition: 29/06/22, p. 70] are claiming that Europe could be a destination for the midfielder after reported interest from Championship Millwall collapsed.

They claim that talks were at advanced stage between the Lions and Lewis Ferguson, with the midfielder only set to cost a cool £1.5m.

Still with two years left on his contract, this may be considered low for a player plenty were touting as being worth £4m only a few seasons ago.

But after the collapse of the deal the Mail believe Ferguson is open to a move abroad but confusingly don’t name any of the clubs reportedly tailing the midfielder.

The links to four clubs are said to be spread across two European nations but it’s unclear which clubs from which nations are actually interested.

This comes after a reported move to now relegated then Serie A side Cagliari is said to have collapsed in January.

Lewis Ferguson remains a popular option amongst many Rangers fans but it remains to be seen if Aberdeen would even consider dealing with the Ibrox club, especially at £1.5m.

The Dons support would be in uproar if Ferguson joined the Gers after a series of top Aberdeen players moved to Rangers in recent seasons.

Signing the likes of Ryan Jack and Scott Wright sent bitter Aberdeen fans into a negative spiral and the two players continue to be lambasted by the Pittodrie support to this day.

Meanwhile, Rangers are said to be closing in on a new transfer that would represent a £300k net spend.
