Tottenham in no mood to let Ryan Sessegnon leave this summer
The 20-year-old Englishman joined the club from Fulham last year in a deal worth £25m. However, the young Englishman has endured a difficult debut campaign in London.
Injuries have hampered his progress a great deal, while new manager Jose Mourinho also did not offer him a lot of opportunities when fit and available. Sessegnon ended the 2019/20 campaign with just 12 appearances across all competitions, scoring and assisting a solitary goal apiece.
With his development stalling, this has led to speculations over his future at the club. The report from The Athletic claims that La Liga giants Barcelona made an enquiry to land the versatile full-back on loan, while the likes of Ajax, AC Milan, Bayer Leverkusen, Brighton & Hove Albion, Newcastle United and Celtic have also expressed an interest.
However, it is reported that Tottenham knocked back Barcelona’s approach without a second thought and have no plans whatsoever to let Sessegnon leave this summer.
Jose Mourinho is keen on giving the 20-year-old more opportunities in the upcoming season and believes that he can fulfill his potential at Tottenham Hotspur. (h/t The Athletic)

Sessegnon showed signs that this season will certainly be different, impressing in the pre-season opener against Ipswich Town. The Englishman was on the scoresheet against the lower league side, and surely that is a sign of things to come.
It is good to see Mourinho show confidence in the youngster and hopefully we see the Sessegnon of his Fulham heydays in the coming season.
