Spurs transfer news: Tottenham favourites to sign Ryan Sessegnon despite Liverpool interest

Bleacher Report (h/t Daily Star) claims that Liverpool are interested in Fulham’s teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon.

The 19-year-old helped the Cottagers reach the Premier League but had to deal with relegation last season.

Sessegnon produced sparks of brilliance in an underwhelming campaign that yielded just two goals and six assists from 35 Premier League games.

The 19-year-old is out of a contract next year and has already told Fulham that he will not be signing a new deal (h/t Daily Star). The report adds that Sessegnon could be available for £35m and Mauricio Pochettino is a fan of the English youngster.

The Reds even sent scouts to watch Sessegnon last season and the report adds that the Englishman would provide Andy Robertson with the competition.

Although Liverpool are keen on the versatile youngster, the report claims that Sessegnon will join Tottenham as he wants to stay in London.

The report adds that Tottenham see Sessegnon as a long-term replacement for left-back Danny Rose.

Sessegnon can play in the defence but some of his best performances came further up the pitch. The 19-year-old can play on either wing and it will be interesting to see how he is deployed by Pochettino once he is signed.
