Coy about Evan Ferguson from Mauricio Pochettino
When asked about Ferguson, Pochettino was keen to remind media that he does not discuss players from other clubs.
The Chelsea manager stated, “You know very well that I don’t talk about rumours or players that are in a different club.” “I treat people with such respect. We’re not exchanging words. We are evaluating the squad, and we will let you know if anything changes. We haven’t made any decisions as of yet.

Is Evan Ferguson someone Chelsea should sign in the summer?
If you’re a Chelsea fan, you should ideally want the team to recruit a seasoned and successful No. 9 like Victor Osimhen of Napoli.
But depending on how he performs this season, Ferguson might be a good substitute if that isn’t feasible.
The Republic of Ireland player has the appearance of a centre forward in the Premier League. At six feet zero, he is hardly the shortest striker, for example. Furthermore, he has six goals in 18 games, which is decent for a player his age.
Ferguson might be a candidate to take into consideration if he can end the season with double digits. He may not have done enough as of yet, though, for Chelsea to be willing to pay outrageous amounts of money for him.
