Report: Tottenham offer £53,000-a-week speed demon to European outfit
Tottenham have offered Ryan Sessegnon to Fenerbahce ahead of the transfer window in Turkey closing later today. According to CNN Turk, the player is valued at £15 million by Spurs and it would appear they want rid of him.
Sessegnon has been on the bench for two of Tottenham’s three games so far this season. He hasn’t managed to get on the pitch though and his time at Tottenham has proved a bit of a disaster.
He arrived for £25 million in 2019 when Mauricio Pochettino was still in charge at the club. Sessegnon has made just 14 appearances, scoring once and claiming one assist.
Sessegnon made 120 appearances for Fulham, scoring 25 goals and registering 18 assists during his time at Craven Cottage. He was expected to really kick on at Tottenham but that’s not been the case.
With Nuno Espirito Santo favouring wing-backs, it was anticipated that Sessegnon might be perfect. He’s not called upon him in the Premier League though and his future at the club looks bleak.
Last season, the versatile left-sided player spent the campaign on loan with Hoffenheim. He scored twice and claimed three assists during 29 appearances.
Sessegnon earns £53,000-a-week at Spurs and his time at the club could be coming to a close.
Spurs should refrain from selling Sessegnon
Tottenham could be about to drop a clanger. Sessegnon still has bags of potential and is still just 21-years-old. With that in mind, Spurs have to tread carefully.
Sessegnon has never had a fair crack of the whip at Tottenham and he’d made ideal backup to Sergio Reguilon this season.
Spurs pride themselves on their young talent and they can’t afford to be offloading players with potential.
Sessegnon can slot in at left-back or on the left-wing and Espirito Santo should be pleading with the board to keep the player.
