Spurs transfer news: Ryan Sessegnon doesn’t commit long-term to Fulham
Fulham star Ryan Sessegnon has failed to commit his long-term future with the Cottagers.
The London side were relegated to the Championship with five games remaining in the season, and Sky Sports claims that several top-flight clubs are interested in the 18-year-old.
The Sun reported that Mauricio Pochettino is a major factor in the race to sign Sessegnon and had given Tottenham the edge.
Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in the English youngster, according to the Sun.
Sky Sports adds that Sessegnon’s contract runs till the end of next season and Fulham could be interested in selling the 18-year-old.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Sessegnon didn’t speak much about his future:
“I’m still a Fulham player, contracted until 2020.
“So I’m still a Fulham player and in terms of that, that’s all I can say at the moment.”
Fulham get back to winning ways but at the wrong time
Fulham struggled to pick up the points but have won their last three games. The Cottagers are coming into form at the wrong time, and they could have saved themselves from relegation had they played in a similar fashion earlier in the season.
Sessegnon was one of the best players in the Championship last season but has struggled to hit top form in the Premier League.
The English youngster has just two goals and six assists from a largely forgettable Premier League campaign by the Cottagers.
