Will the EPL transfer fee top change again…Manchester United’s ambitions to recruit a “five-goal striker.”

Posted on 18 November 2023 by maxytee.com

Manchester United’s (Manchester United) eyes are once again on a striker.

“United have identified Evan Ferguson, 19, of Brighton, as one of their top targets for next summer’s transfer window,” the British publication Football Insider reported on Monday.

United’s performance this season has been disappointing. After 12 games in the Premier League, they are in sixth place with seven wins and five draws. The gap between them and leaders Manchester City is seven points.

The lack of goals is the biggest problem. United have scored just 13 goals in 12 league games. In the entire league, only six teams have scored fewer goals than United.

Rasmus Højlund can’t escape the blame. Despite his €75 million transfer fee this summer, he has yet to score a Premier League goal on his debut.

As a result, United have once again turned their attention to signing a new striker, and according to the report, Ferguson is on the short list of targets for manager Eric ten Hagg, who is focusing on bringing in young players.토토사이트

Ferguson is one of the most sought-after striker prospects in the world. His 16 goals and five assists in 34 games across all competitions last season were followed by five goals in 14 games this season, heralding the arrival of a new star.

The reward came in the form of a new contract. Brighton announced the signing of Ferguson on Tuesday. The new contract runs through 2029, pledging his long-term commitment to the Seagulls.

Ferguson’s price tag has skyrocketed, with Football Insider stating, “It would take an astronomical outlay to land Ferguson. It may require the highest transfer fee in Premier League history.”

Currently, the Premier League’s highest transfer fee is £115 million ($186.6 billion), which was set this summer when Moises Caicedo joined Chelsea from Brighton. If Ferguson continues his upward trajectory, he could easily surpass it.

The Atlanta Braves have acquired reliever Aaron Bummer from the Chicago White Sox in a five-player trade.

According to MLB.com, Atlanta “acquired Bummer from the White Sox in a trade that sent right-hander Michael Soroka, left-hander Jared Schuster, infielders Nicky Lopez and Brandon Schumaker, and right-hander Riley Gowens to the White Sox.”굿모닝토토

Bummer, who has been with the White Sox since his big league debut in 2017, is 14-15 with a 3.84 ERA in 289 career games with 85 strikeouts and five saves. This year, he appeared in 61 games and pitched 58 1/3 innings, going 5-5 with a 6.79 ERA and 15 saves. He struck out 78 batters.

After bolstering its back end with the addition of Bummer, Atlanta traded away a number of prospects it had accumulated.

Soroka (2015), Schuster (2020), and Schmidt (2019) were all first-round picks by Atlanta in the First-Year Player Draft.

Soroka broke into the major leagues in 2018 and went 13-4 with a 2.68 ERA the following year. However, an Achilles tendon injury in 2020 limited him to three appearances. He suffered another ankle injury while rehabbing, and it took him a long time to get back to full health. When he returned to the majors this year, he went 2-2 with a 6.40 ERA in seven games.

Schuster, who made his big league debut this year, went 4-3 with a 5.81 ERA in 11 games. Schmake, also making his first major league at-bats this season, went 0-for-4 in two games.

The White Sox, who are in the midst of a rebuild under new general manager Chris Getz, who was hired in September, will be looking to build for the 2024 season with a number of new faces.
