According to the Daily Mirror (live blog 13:36, 8th August), Tottenham Hotspur are set to make a big money bid for Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon on deadline day.

Sessegnon has been a long term target of Tottenham’s, and Mauricio Pochettino is now ready to go after the youngster.

Sessegnon is regarded as one of England’s top up-and-coming talents, after an unbelievable season at Championship level last term.

 

The 18-year-old scored 15 league goals for Fulham last term, helping them earn promotion.

Fulham have been determined to keep hold of Sessegnon throughout the summer so far, and have fended off all interest.

However Tottenham, who are yet to make a single signing, are now said to planning a mega-money offer for the teenager tomorrow.

Tottenham owner Daniel Levy wants to force through a transfer in a matter of hours, as he looks to reduce criticism for a lack of activity so far.

If Sessegnon was brought to Spurs, he would offer competition at left-back and in forward areas over the upcoming campaign.
