Tottenham Hotspur should've moved for Ryan Sessegnon back in June

The reported Tottenham Hotspur target is now worth £50 million seemingly.

According to The Sun, Fulham have slapped a £50 million asking price on highly-rated defender Ryan Sessegnon in a development which might make Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy wince.

Football London reported back in June that the 17-year-old had "his heart set" on joining Tottenham.

This was when Fulham, according to The Independent, were only asking for £15 million, but Sessegnon has since signed a three-year contract extension after Spurs seemingly did not make their move.

Fast forward a few months and The Sun is reporting that the Lilywhites - who have long been interested - are ready to make a bid for the teenager but is it possible that Levy's apparent summer snub will have caused him to re-consider his preference?

Unfortunately for the North Londoners, they don't have this one all to themselves.

Sessegnon certainly appears to be the real deal and ESPN reported that Manchester United were also interested. Tottenham may be the place to be if you're a young player but it would take an awful lot of courage to turn down the Red Devils.

In any case, if Fulham are serious about their £50 million valuation then Levy should kick himself for not anticipating a huge increase in his price-tag and not make a move when £15 million was the valuation. It was never going to get lower.
