Wolves are thought to have expressed an interest in the Northern Ireland international as they look to bring the 21-year-old to Molineux.
However, Birmingham are thought to be favourites to land Ferguson this summer after the player enjoyed a spell on loan at St Andrew's last season.
Ferguson made 11 appearances for Birmingham after joining on loan in February and he impressed during his time in the Midlands.
Birmingham boss Lee Clark has previously admitted he would like to bring Ferguson back to the club and it is believed they are in advanced talks about re-signing the versatile performer on loan again.
