Unless you write your own status routine you won't be able to get that information, in any case ftp is quite dumb and will always give you the status on the command itself, not what is has done...
Even more, if running in background until it has finished its execution if you have not included a minimum of logging instructions, except seeing the process running you will have nothing more

Would you consider changing the server side to enable logging? That would give you a trace of files transferred, but not in-flight information. It is very specific on the OS & version number you have.

If you use sftp or scp, you can get a progress report on screen if that helps. Can you tell us more about the client, server and protocol used? Perhaps pv might have something you can use.

For plain ftp you might have to list the file to be transferred first and then you can work out where you are from that.
