According to The Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham in the summer transfer window.

Manchester United are also reported to be preparing a £50 million bid for Sessegnon, but the 18-year-old is claimed not to want to leave London.

 

The teenager, who can operate as a left-back or as a left-winger, is stalling on a new contract, and Tottenham want to sign him at the end of the season, according to the report.

The Mirror has also claimed that Spurs could sign the England Under-21 international in the summer and then loan him back to Fulham for the 2019-20 campaign.

Strange plan

Sessegnon is a very talented and promising young player who was superb in the Championship last season, but the youngster’s performances in the Premier League for Fulham so far this campaign have not been great.

It does appear strange that Spurs could reportedly send the teenager back to Fulham on loan.

It would be better if the 18-year-old stays at Tottenham, and works with manager Mauricio Pochettino and understands his philosophy.
