The Telegraph have claimed on their live transfer blog (Thursday, 3:12) that Ryan Sessegnon has completed a move to Tottenham Hotspur and is set to sign a long-term contract.
Sessegnon, 19, has been linked with a move ever since the England youth international had starred in Fulham’s promotion during 2017-18 to the Premier League. His form dropped last term, but Spurs remained keen.
It is believed a fee for Sessegnon is in the region of £25million for the Fulham academy product, and is likely to be seen as a winger at Spurs with Danny Rose and Ben Davies looking likely to remain in north London.
A move for Sessegnon is believed to be one of two deals for Tottenham before Thursday’s 5pm deadline, with Sessegnon signing a five-year deal with the option of more at the club.
Spurs are also expected to sign Giovani Lo Celso from Real Betis. Despite being linked with a permanent move, it is believed Tottenham are to pay £16million for an initial loan, before paying a full amount next summer.
Meanwhile, a move for Juventus playmaker Paulo Dybala is believed to have fallen through because the club could not reach an agreement with Juventus to cover the Argentine’s image rights.
