TWO of Scotland’s best young talents, Lewis Ferguson and Josh Doig, are both on the brink of sealing £3million moves to Italy.

The Aberdeen midfielder is heading for Bologna after a fee was agreed between the clubs and the Hibs defender will follow at the start of next week once he finalises his switch to fellow Serie A outfit Hellas Verona, according to the Daily Mail.

Scotland international Ferguson, 22, who has two years of his contract to run, has been the subject of transfer speculation since the end of the season and Millwall slapped in a cheeky £1.5million offer last month which was immediately booted out by the Pittodrie club, as Scotzine reported.

He is the second key member of Jim Goodwin’s first-team squad to quit the club with right-back Calvin Ramsey accepting an £8million move to Liverpool.

ON THE MOVE…Hibs prospect is poised to finalise a switch to Verona.

Meanwhile, 20-year-old Doig is also on his way to the Italian top flight and no problems are anticipated when he holds talks on personal terms within the next 72 hours.

The classy left-back also attracted interest from Premier League clubs Arsenal, Leeds and Watford last summer, but remained in Leith and in November signed a new deal that runs until the summer of 2026.

New Easter Road boss Lee Johnson admitted: “Everyone has a price.”

Scotland international Aaron Hickey, the former Hearts starlet, is ready to QUIT Serie A and sign for Brentford from Bologna within the next few days.
