Tottenham Hotspur retain an interest in two English starlets. According to The Sun, Tottenham will move for Jack Clarke and Ryan Sessegnon after completing their priority transfer.
Tanguy Ndombele is Tottenham’s top target. And they have lodged a £60m bid for the France international. Once this deal is finalised, Spurs will turn their attention to younger, domestic players.
Clarke and Sessegnon are two targets on Tottenham’s radar. Mauricio Pochettino is ready to give these two the green light after Ndombele becomes a Tottenham player.
Fulham winger Sessegnon is set to be given a Premier League lifeline by Tottenham. The England U21 starlet scored twice and provided six assists in his first season in the top-flight.
But after the Cottagers were relegated back to the Premier League, he is ready to make his big move. Spurs want the 19-year-old as he can provide a long-term option on the wing or at left-back.
Leeds United starlet Clarke is another young winger on Tottenham’s radar. The 18-year-old broke into the first-team this season and impressed fans with his lively performances.
Clarke caught the eye, scoring twice and providing two assists in 25 games. But Leeds might struggle to keep him after failing to win promotion via the play-offs.
Both of these deals make sense. Not only are Clarke and Sessegnon two exciting prospects for the future, they also provide depth in the short-term and improve Spurs’ homegrown quota.
Clarke looked fearless this season, running at defenders with a direct approach. He is versatile – he can play on either wing or up front – and he could break into the Spurs team in the near future.
Sessegnon is a talented young player, despite his initial struggles in the Premier League. Tottenham need reinforcements down the left and Sessegnon could be their long-term solution.
