Ryan Sessegnon has already agreed to a deal to leave Fulham this summer, claims former club forward Leroy Rosenior.
The teenager caught the attention of a number of clubs last season following a fantastic breakthrough campaign for the West London club. The player has succeeded in upping his game this season, which has alerted a host of Premier League clubs.
Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Manchester United have all been linked with the teenager in the past but were dealt a blow in their attempts to sign him, as the left wide-man signed his first professional contract at Fulham last summer.
After a fine breakthrough campaign with the Cottagers where he scored 7 goals, Sessegnon has already netted 12 times this time around, along with 4 assists as well.
Fulham remain adamant about holding on to the young star but Rosenior feels that the player is certain to leave Craven Cottage after this campaign, with Tottenham being the most likely destination.
“I think that a deal has been done for Ryan as teams have been in for him,” Rosenior told on James Richardson’s Totally Football Show (h/t Football.London).
“It’s a Premier League side with strong rumours of Tottenham. I wouldn’t be surprised if other sides have been in for him as well. He’s stays at Fulham before moving in the summer. His future is already mapped out.
“Ryan has great potential. He is one of those players who you think he’s not a left-back and not a left-winger. He could be an amazing player.”
However, in spite of Spurs being the leading contenders for his signature, Sessegnon penned a new deal with Fulham until 2020. This means that we have to cough up a lot of money should we want to sign the player in the summer.
Fulham reportedly want around £50million for their starlet, who has become one of the most sought-after youngsters across Europe.
But in any case, Sessegnon looks like a player destined for bigger things and will surely play in the Premier League. After dishing out some eye-catching performances this season, the 17-year-old’s value has rocketed. It won’t be a surprise to see Sessegnon play in the top-tier of English football next season onwards.
