Tottenham Hotspur are believed to be interested in signing both Fulham aces.

According to a report from the Daily Star, Tottenham remain keen on signing Fulham ace Ryan Sessegnon, but their interest in his brother Steven is complicating matters.

Spurs have already been incredibly busy this summer, bringing in Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon and Jack Clarke from Leeds United.

And Mauricio Pochettino's business seems to be far from finished.


The Daily Star claims that Ryan Sessegnon, 19, remains a top target for Tottenham, but their hopes of signing him are being hindered by their interest in his twin brother Steven, with Fulham not keen on selling both players.

Football.London claims that Pochettino wants to deploy Ryan as both a left-back and a left-winger, if and when he brings him to Spurs.

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham are willing to bid around £35 million for the teenager this summer, but if they want to bring him to north London, they might just have to end their interest in his brother Steven.

Much will depend on how much Pochettino actually wants to sign both, but if he had to choose one, Ryan is clearly the standout performer out of the two brothers, and it really should be an easy decision for Tottenham.
