Scottish football journalist Mark Guidi has been sharing his thoughts on the possibility of Aberdeen midfielder Lewis Ferguson making a move to Watford during the upcoming summer transfer window.
This comes after Guidi made an appearance on a recent episode of The Go Radio Football Show Podcast where he spoke about a range of topics concerning Scottish football.
He said: “I’d rather see him at Rangers or Celtic, stay in Scottish football, but could he go down the road and his next move – let’s say it’d be Southampton, or a Burnley, or a Fulham or a Watford or something like that?
“Yes, I could see that as well for those kind of clubs now, being able to get Lewis Ferguson for that kind of money, he is definitely going to be in the Scotland squad within the next 18 months as well.
“I can see him moving but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s to one of the Old Firms.”
Aberdeen signed Ferguson back in the 2018 summer transfer window from fellow Premiership side Hamilton Academical for a fee of £239k.
Since then, the 21-year-old, who is currently valued at £2.7 million, has gone on to make 124 appearances for Aberdeen in which he has managed to score 21 goals and provide 22 assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).
TIF Thoughts on Mark Guidi’s comments on Ferguson…
Given how Ferguson has scored more goals than any other player for Aberdeen in the Premiership this season and earn himself a solid season rating of 7.07/10, making him the second-highest-rated Aberdeen player that’s played in more than 10 league matches this season, it’s understandable why Watford have shown an interest in him.

With The Sun reporting that Watford have had a bid of £2 million rejected by Aberdeen for Ferguson but could yet return with an improved offer for the midfielder, this suggests that the player could yet end up playing in the Premier League with the Hornets next season.
