Tottenham drop interest in Championship wonderkid with 11 goals and 4 assists – reports

Ryan Sessegnon

Tottenham Hotspur may not be signing English wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon in the January transfer window, claims a report from the Sun. The North Londoners have been one of the primary suitors of the 17-year old Sessegnon, who has been making serious waves in the English second-tier since his debut campaign last year.

Tottenham had tried to bring the England youth international to the club back in the summer window as well, but the Cottagers were able to convince Sessegnon to reject our advances and got him to sign a contract with the club.  

But that doesn’t seem to have discouraged the club as Spurs, reportedly, had another go at trying to land him in the ongoing transfer window. However, the report claims that Mauricio Pochettino’s side have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of the full-back as Fulham have dug their heels and rebuffed the Lilywhites’ attempts to sign the youngster.  

The 17-year old burst on to the scenes last year for Fulham and soon established himself as an important member of the first-team under manager Slavisa Jokanovic. Sessegnon finished the 2016/17 campaign with 7 goals and 5 assists in 31 appearances in all competitions before going on to sign his first professional contract with the club, when he turned 17 in May last year.  

The teenager has continued to enhance his burgeoning reputation with another scintillating season so far. In the ongoing season, Sessegnon has managed to improve his returns from last season already, having scored 11 goals in 29 Championship matches, along with 4 assists.  

He has been in incredible form since the turn of the year and has found the back of the net on 6 occasions in his 4 league appearances in the new year. Capable of playing anywhere on the left flank, be it as a full-back, a wing-back or as a winger, Sessegnon is, no doubt, a special talent who is meant for bigger and better things.

We may have been thwarted in our efforts to sign him for now but the club should once again go back for him in the upcoming summer as it is clear that he is a special player who’d prove to be a wonderful acquisition for us.
