Tottenham star Ryan Sessegnon suffers relapse hamstring injury

In a disappointing turn of events for Tottenham Hotspur, young full-back Ryan Sessegnon has suffered a relapse of his troublesome hamstring injury.

The news was confirmed by Sami Mokbel, Chief Reporter for the Daily Mail, who revealed that the player had recently undergone surgery. Sessegnon, who struggled with the same injury in the latter stages of last season, is now set to miss the start of the upcoming campaign.

The setback is expected to keep him sidelined until at least September, dealing a significant blow to new manager Ange Postecoglou’s plans. Postecoglou had hoped to assess Sessegnon during the pre-season before making a decision on the player’s future.

However, with this latest injury setback, those plans have been derailed. The young full-back had been attracting interest from a number of English clubs, including Crystal Palace, Fulham, and Nottingham Forest.

Overseas clubs, such as Marseille and Benfica, had also expressed interest in acquiring his services. Unfortunately, this injury is likely to put those potential transfers on hold for now and he is likely to stay here.

With Ryan Sessegnon facing an extended spell on the sidelines and the expected departure of Ivan Perisic, Tottenham now finds themselves in a left-back dilemma as the transfer window continues to unfold.

Udogie, a promising left-back who was signed from Udinese last season, was subsequently loaned back to the Italian club. During his time in Serie A, the youngster impressed, contributing three goals and four assists.

However, as the transfer window progresses, Tottenham will need to explore alternative solutions to address their left-back needs. A more experienced and seasoned player might be required to fill the void left by Sessegnon’s absence.
