Tottenham face more competition for Ryan Sessegnon


Tottenham may be the most likely destination for Ryan Sessegnon after Liverpool pulled out of the race, but they are now facing competition from another Premier League rival.

The Fulham left-back, 17, is now ready to sign his first professional contract having scored seven goals in 30 appearances in the season just gone.

Mauricio Pochettino’s records when it comes to developing full-backs is outstanding and that would perhaps make north London the ideal destination for the teenager. Spurs’ system also suits Sessegnon well, as he can either play as a conventional left-back or further up the pitch as a wing-back.

However, the Mirror suggest that Manchester United are also ready to snap up the England under-18 international.


The downside to joining Spurs would be that they already have Danny Rose and Ben Davies to choose from, so left-back is far from a problem position. At United, it’s a very different story. Jose Mourinho has ample options, but none of Luke Shaw, Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian, or Marcos Rojo seem to have nailed down the spot.

There may be opportunities for Sessegnon, but it’s unlikely that he’ll be put straight into the first team, so this doesn’t necessary spell the end for players like Shaw.

The defender would be one of the cheaper options on the market as he is not yet signed up at Fulham, though the west Londoners would be entitled to a compensation fee.
