Ledley King has spoken highly of reported Tottenham Hotspur target and Fulham left-back Ryan Sessegnon to The Daily Mail.

According to The London Evening Standard, Premier League outfit Tottenham are interested in signing Sessegnon from Championship side Fulham in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that Spurs are closing in on a deal for the left-back, and that the North London outfit are working on a deal on Monday.

The report has claimed that the transfer fee for Sessegnon, who can also operate as a left-winger, will be £25 million.

Tottenham legend King has spoken highly of Sessegnon, and told The Daily Mail: “He's a really good talent. He’s done really well at Fulham in the Championship and then made the natural step up into the Premier League and done well.”

Good signing for Tottenham Hotspur?

Sessegnon was not exactly great for Fulham in the Premier League last season, but one should not forget that the England Under-21 international is only 19 years of age.

The Englishman will be a good signing for Spurs, not just for now, but in the long run as well, as manager Mauricio Pochettino can develop him and make him even better.

Tottenham will be challenging for the Premier League title this season and will also be competing in the Champions League.
