Ryan Sessegnon's seemingly impending arrival must not be the end of Tottenham Hotspur's business

Tottenham Hotspur are seemingly set to sign Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon now.

Ryan Sessegnon of Fulham looks on during the pre-season friendly between Reading and Fulham at the EBB Stadium on July 14, 2018 in Aldershot, England.

According to a report in the Independent, Tottenham Hotspur are on the verge of signing Ryan Sessegnon now, but even if that deal gets done Daniel Levy cannot relax.

Sessegnon appears to be heading to Tottenham in a £25 million deal from Fulham, but that transfer can only be considered the least important of the three current deals that they are negotiating.

Spurs are heading into the final two days wanting three players, with Sessegnon, Giovani Lo Celso and Bruno Fernandes seemingly their targets.


Sessegnon’s addition to Tottenham’s squad would be positive, and he could be a great signing for future years.

However, Tottenham’s transfer window all rests on whether they can get a deal for Fernandes or Lo Celso over the line.

Tottenham could have a brilliant summer if they snap up one of the two playmakers.

If Spurs sign Lo Celso or Fernandes and Sessegnon, with Tanguy Ndombele and Jack Clarke already in the bag, then the Lilywhites summer business will look very strong.

However, without Lo Celso or Fernandes signed, Levy is going to face questions.

Tottenham fans are desperate for at least one more big signing to be made before the deadline, and Sessegnon just doesn’t fit that bill.

Fernandes' or Lo Celso’s arrivals, on the other hand, would immediately bring excitement flooding back to White Hart Lane.

And it is simply imperative that Tottenham secure at least one of their two playmaking targets, otherwise their ambition is going to be questioned once again.
