Aston Villa are among the club’s interested in Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon this summer, according to a report by the Daily Telegraph.
Tottenham and Manchester United are also apparently keen, but it is a sign of Villa’s ambition that they are also keen on the teenager.
Villa have already landed one England Under-21 international this summer in the shape of Ezri Konsa and would reportedly be happy to land another Young Lion who went to Italy for the European Championship last month.
It would be surprising if Villa were to land Sessegnon’s services, as it has looked for so long that he would be destined for Tottenham.
Sessengon’s contract situation as well as his status as one of the outstanding young players in English football makes him a hugely attractive proposition for any club this summer.
The delay over his next move could allow Villa the chance to cut in, but they would likely need to break their transfer record once more with the report valuing him at around £25 million.
Villa could use another winger after the departure of Albert Adomah, although perhaps Egyptian international Trezeguet looks the more likely – and affordable – option as it stands.
The Villans aren’t messing around this summer though – and landing Sessegnon ahead of some major clubs would be a huge coup.
