Leeds United are reportedly battling Brighton for Tottenham Hotspur star Ryan Sessegnon this summer as Spurs look set to sanction a loan move for the England Under-21 international – and Whites fans have responded on Twitter.
Tottenham’s work in the transfer window has already seen Dele Alli fall out of the matchday squad on occasion – Sunday being the latest. Sessegnon, 20, is another example of a player that is struggling to get a spot in the side.
Despite being able to play left-back or as a left-winger, Sessegnon managed just 12 outings for Spurs last term following his £25million (BBC) move from Fulham. Now, Spurs have brought in Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale.
Those additions have pushed Sessegnong further down the pecking order for both positions. Sussex Live claim Spurs are now open to seeing the left-footed flyer depart on loan this summer – with Leeds and Brighton both interested in his signature.
Brighton are renowned for playing with a back three and wing-backs and that could suit Sessegnon – with Tariq Lamptey currently shining on the right. Leeds have plenty of options on the left, with Stuart Dallas shining.
Despite Dallas’ form and competition from Gjanni Alioski, Leif Davis and Barry Douglas – Whites fans have reacted on Twitter ti reports that Sessegnon is a target and the majority are seemingly keen to see Sessegnon at Elland Road.
Got a soft spot for Sessegnon I must admit. The lad was a real talent for Fulham & I'd love to see what he's capable of under Bielsa. Suspect Spurs will only want a loan or his fee will be silly.
Only one in not sure about is James as he's not positionally flexible enough for me.

From what I've read Cuisance would be brilliant and I would absolutely love to see Sessegnon 👍.

Weird this I was just thinking this morning how he would suit our style and doesn’t get any game time at Spurs. https://t.co/fFXaAE9qxb

Loan with a permanent option would be a good shout for us I think, would give good coverage at lb and lw https://t.co/xIUP1wGYIK
