The English Championship side have submitted a £1.5million bid for the Aberdeen midfielder.

But SunSport understands the Dons will be looking for at least the DOUBLE for Ferguson.

Lions boss Gary Rowett is desperate to land the Scotland international after a string of excellent scouting reports.

Millwall’s previous highest outlay was the £1.2million they paid Sheffield United for Ryan Leonard four years ago.

But they face fierce competition to sign Ferguson with a number of other English teams also in the running.

Watford, who made two attempts to land the player last summer, are still interested in taking him to Vicarage Road.

Rowett has named Fergie to replace former Rangers star Sheyi Ojo, who returned to Liverpool after last season’s loan spell.

The New Den manager is keen to bring in a combative midfielder.

And with Ferguson racking up 170 appearances for the Dons over the past four seasons, he fits the bill perfectly.

Meanwhile, Aberdeen boss Jim Goodwin is keen for Tranmere Rovers right-back Josh Dacres-Cogley to replace Liverpool-bound Calvin Ramsay.

Goodwin is on the hunt for a new defender – and the former Birmingham City man is on his radar.

Dacres-Cogley is seen as an ideal replacement for Ramsay, who is set to make a big-money move to the Anfield giants.

But English League Two side Tranmere are keen to keep the defender and will want around £400,000 to let him go.

Aberdeen value him much less, with Dacres-Cogley entering the final year of his contract.

The 26-year-old came through the ranks at Birmingham and spent six years as a professional there before joining Tranmere last season.
