Barcelona interested in Tottenham Hotspur starlet Ryan Sessegnon

According to the Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo (h/t Football.london), La Liga giants Barcelona are keen on Tottenham Hotspur youngster Ryan Sessegnon.

The 20-year-old only joined the last summer from Fulham. An incredibly promising player, he has endured an injury-hit debut season in North London. As of yet, he has made just 12 appearances for us while scoring once and assisting another.

Despite being fit, he is yet to feature for Spurs since the restart. In fact, his last appearance for the club was our away loss to RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League back in March.

An extremely versatile player who can play anywhere along the left flank, Sessegnon has shades of a young Gareth Bale. It must be remembered that the Welshman too initially started at left-back before reinventing himself as a left-winger. He would go on to then become one of the best players in the world.

Given Sessegnon’s age and his potential, it is clear to see why Barcelona are keen on securing him. According to the report, any deal for the youngster will have to wait until the Catalans can rid themselves of Junior Firpo.

A number of clubs across Europe are eyeing the Spurs starlet. According to the Standard, Jose Mourinho, however, has personally blocked Barcelona’s approach. Rightly so. Mourinho views Sessegnon as a full-back long-term and has compared him to Ashley Cole. (h/t Standard)

Sessegnon is not the only player the Catalans are keen on. They are also eyeing up Spurs midfielder Tanguy Ndombele. (h/t Standard)

Sessegnon is both frustrated and puzzled by the lack of opportunities afforded to him at Tottenham. It remains to be seen if he is willing to remain for another season as a bit-part player.

In the current financial landscape, we cannot afford to lose one of our most promising talents. The club’s future on the pitch is on the line.
