Aston Villa are currently preparing for a second season in the Premier League after avoiding relegation and they need to look at strengthening the squad.
Dean Smith’s side scored 41 goals in the 38 league appearances and they are more likely to be in a relegation scrap if they can add more goals to their starting XI, should be exploring possible attacking options in this summer transfer window.
The Midlands club should reconsider looking at Ryan Sessegnon, who was a target for them back in 2019 when he was at Fulham.
The Telegraph claimed in July 2019 that Villa made an enquiry for the England Under-21 international, as they were preparing for life back in the top-flight.
Sessegnon ended up completing a £25million switch to Spurs for £25million (BBC), but reports now suggest that he could be on the move this summer.
The Telegraph now reports that the 20-year-old’s former club Fulham are one of the leading candidates in a race to try sign him on loan for the upcoming season.
It is understood that Spurs are reluctant to offload their youngster, but he is desperate for regular action after limited opportunities under Jose Mourinho.
Sessegnon played just 12 first-team games all season for the north London club and that’s why Villa should throw their name into the mix to try take him on loan next season.
The left-footer is a versatile star that has been developed into a winger, but previously played as a full-back too at Craven Cottage.
He is a speed machine that scored 25 goals and supplied 18 assists during 120 senior appearances for Fulham, but he just needs some extended time in the top-flight to show his potential and could be a real addition to Villa’s team if they consider him.
