Tottenham have been given a major boost in their bid to sign Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon next month, according to various reports. The Guardian claims that the Championship club have informed the potential suitors the 17-year-old sensation will be allowed to leave Craven Cottage for £30million in the January window.

The report further says that Fulham have now opened the door to Sessegnon’s exit by setting the valuation in conversations with front-runners Tottenham and Manchester United.

Many expect Sessegnon to leave Fulham in 2018 for a big-money move elsewhere and the Daily Mail report that even Real Madrid are tracking the teenager, despite landing Theo Hernandez from Atletico Madrid over the summer.

Scouts from Real Madrid have been sent to watch him in several of Fulham’s fixtures this season but despite the interest from the European champions, Sessegnon, who finished as joint top scorer for England at the European Under-19 Championship is still expected to sign for Spurs, with their Premier League rivals United also interested in his signature.

Last summer, Sessegnon signed a professional contract with Fulham, signalling he valued regular football in the Championship over a money-spinning move to the Premier League. The teenage prodigy has been playing at left full-back and on the left of a front three this season, scoring 5 goals and 3 assists in 24 appearances.

Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic, however, has reminded Sessegnon of the perks of staying with the Cottagers amidst intense transfer speculation around the teenager.

“It’s nice for him [to be linked with big clubs] and for the club too. And if you want to say, it’s nice for myself, I must be satisfied because big clubs are interested in our player,” Jokanovic was quoted in a report by Metro.

“I wish he is going to stay with me, but it’s not in my control. I believe he’s a clever man, believe the people around him are clever enough, he’s played more than 50 games, he’s 17, I know in the past in the last summer there’s been interest around him but he took the decision to stay with us, a fantastic decision in my opinion!”

With question marks over Danny Rose’s future with Spurs, a move for Sessegnon makes sense as he would be the ideal replacement. He possesses blistering pace and attacking ability, whilst also having the versatility to play as a full-back or as a wing-back.

Given that United and Real are also in hot pursuit of the left-sided flyer, Spurs will have to throw massive amount money in order to lure the teenager to North London. If Pochettino can fend off his cash-rich rivals, then it will be considered as a major coup.
