Tottenham Hotspur’s reported Ryan Sessegnon plan is flawed

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly interested in signing Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham in the summer transfer window.

Ryan Sessegnon of England looks on during the 2019 UEFA U-21 Championship Group C match between England and France at Dino Manuzzi Stadium on June 18, 2019 in Cesena, Italy.

According to The Express, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham in a £25 million deal in the summer transfer window, but the North London outfit would prefer to sell Danny Rose first.

Spurs are reportedly open to selling England international left-back Rose, but the 29-year-old former Leeds United prospect may not leave if the deal is not right for him.

 

With just days left in the summer transfer window, Spurs are running out of time to sign Sessegnon, and the North London outfit simply cannot afford to wait any longer.

True, in the end, Spurs may not be able to offload Rose this summer, but signing Sessegnon will make them a much better team.

The 19-year-old, who can operate as a left-back or as a left-winger, is one for the future, and the England Under-21 international can only get better in the coming years.

If Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has decided that Rose is not in his plan, then there is no point in the club waiting for the left-back to leave before making a move for a player they really want.
