According to a report from the Sun, Monaco have joined Tottenham, Manchester United and Barcelona in the race to sign Fulham wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon, having performed several scouting missions on the 17-year-old over the past couple of weeks.

According to the Telegraph, Spurs are, and have been for quite some time, leading the race to sign the Fulham teen, and are preparing an offer of around £35 million for his services in the summer.

The Sun claim that the Cottagers ace could be signed for around £30 million, however, and that asking price will spark a frenetic race for his signature at the end of the season.

How vital will it be for Tottenham to win the race for Sessegnon?

The 17-year-old is arguably the most exciting young prospect in world football.

He has chalked up an impressive 21 goals and 10 assists in 76 outings for Fulham thus far, with over half of those appearances coming from the left-back position.

Sessegnon has so much potential, and has already shown signs that he has the ability to go on and become one of the world's best players.

The teenager's playing style is remarkably similar to Gareth Bale's, and it would be no surprise to see him go on to emulate the Welshman.

He would be a fantastic signing for Spurs, and one that they should attempt to wrap up sooner rather than later, especially with Monaco now entering the race for the Fulham starlet's signature.
