The Telegraph have claimed that Fulham want to re-sign Ryan Sessegnon on loan from Tottenham Hotspur this summer just one season after his £25million move to Spurs – but may face competition from Barcelona.
Sessegnon, 20, has managed just 12 appearances for Spurs since Fulham decided to cash in on the 12-time England Under-21 star. A mix of injuries and plenty of competition has hampered Sessegnon’s progress.
Tottenham are believed to be reluctant to let the left-footed ace leave Spurs this summer but are aware that he wants regular football, and needs game time at the highest level to maximise his potential.
Fulham are one of a number of sides interested in signing the winger on loan in a move that would see Sessegnon add to his 125 senior outings for the west London side. Scott Parker could use his Spurs connections.
However, Fulham are not alone in their pursuit of Sessegnon with Barcelona showing tentative interest. He has a contract at Tottenham until the summer of 2025.
TBR’s view – Sessegnon would be ideal for Parker’s Fulham
The Cottagers have an excellent left-back in Joe Bryan – who netted twice in the play-off final win over Brentford on Tuesday night. But Sessegnon is ideal to play in front of him, and that is because the two can interchange.
Sessegnon is a winger, much more than he is a left-back. Bryan, meanwhile, likes to bomb on from defence. But with Sessegnon having experience of playing as a left-back, he can cover Bryan when the latter goes forward.
The two would surely strike up an excellent partnership and that would see Sessegnon’s confidence restored – benefiting all parties involved. A loan back to Fulham is a no-brainer.
