Newcastle United could once again raid Tottenham Hotspur, with The Sun reporting Ryan Sessegnon is a target for Steve Bruce.
The publication claims the Magpies boss wants to buy British this window, with a loan move for the 20-year-old a priority.
The two clubs last did business in January of this year, with Danny Rose moving to St. James’ Park for the second half of 2019/20.
Newcastle have been linked with a permanent move for Rose, but it could be his teammate who winds up going north east this time.
Sessegnon has had a tough start at Spurs following his £25 million transfer from Fulham a year ago (BBC Sport).
Injuries haven’t helped his cause, and then of course came Mauricio Pochettino’s exit.
He only made a total of 12 appearances in 2019/20, and it would be no surprise to see the youngster make a temporary move away from north London this window.
It is important for Sessegnon to get regular minutes in 2020/21 if he is to stake an outside claim to go to the European Championships with England.
Newcastle fans on social media certainly seemed open to the idea of getting Sessegnon in for the new season:

Personally Ryan will be a good loan signing if we can pull it off

Ryan Sessegnon and Ollie Watkins would be great signings for Newcastle. Some great talent and could be able to get them for a good price. #nufc
