French giants Paris Saint-Germain have also entered the race to sign highly-rated teenager Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham in summer, according to reports. The 17-year-old has been linked with Tottenham, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea in recent weeks.
And the latest club to enter the race to sign Sessegnon is PSG, who have been devastated with the way they crashed out of Champions League against Real Madrid. They are expected to spend big this summer in order to strengthen their squad.
The club has started planning for the summer and one key area they want to solidify is left-back. And as per French publication L’Equipe (h/t talkSPORT), Sessegnon tops the list, with Juventus’ Alex Sandro considered as an alternative.
Sessegnon has been a revelation this season for Fulham, scoring 14 times in the Championship. He is considered to be one of the brightest talents to emerge from the Championship and his breathtaking performances have alerted a host of top European clubs.
The teenager has been consistent this campaign and was recently voted as the Championship’s Player of the Month for January.
The report adds that PSG are now ready to see if they can lure Sessegnon to France by submitting an eye-catching offer to Fulham.
But as per the Daily Mirror, Sessegnon has set his sight on moving to Spurs after the end of this season. It is very clear the 17-year-old finds himself in the middle of a huge scramble and will definitely leave the Cottagers in the summer, even if they win promotion to the Premier League.
Mauricio Pochettino is a big fan of the rampaging full-back and is believed to have laid a foundation in order to sign him. But apart from PSG, we face a lot of competition from United and Liverpool, while the teenage starlet has also attracted interest from Bayern Munich.
However, Pochettino’s track record of blooding youngsters is fantastic and giving them chances to perform on the bigger stages makes Spurs a tantalising option for Sessegnon.
Sessegnon is a sought-after talent, a player who can play in the defence, in the midfield and has performed commendably well for Fulham in the past couple of seasons.
Spurs are aware that the 17-year-old is a gem in the making and any delay in making a move for him could work against us.
