‘You know what to do’: Ryan Sessegnon appears to publicly encourage £20m star to join Spurs
Tottenham might be close to signing Djed Spence from Middlesbrough and Ryan Sessegnon has just hinted on Instagram a deal might be close.
Reports today have claimed that Spurs expect to be able to wrap up a £20m deal for Spence this week. It comes after weeks of negotiations in which Middlesbrough have been holding out for the best deal possible. Spence enjoyed a fine campaign with Nottingham Forest last term and has become a key target for Antonio Conte.
This evening, Spence has taken to Instagram to post a message to Nottingham Forest fans. And down in the comments, current Tottenham winger Ryan Sessegnon has left a comment to suggest he’s egging Spence on when it comes to joining Spurs.
Sessegnon has left the comment of ‘you know what to do now’, which insinuates that he is basically telling Spence to get his move to Tottenham done and dusted.
ryansess 🔥🔥🔥, you know what to do now ….
Of course, Sessegnon has experience of making the switch from the Championship. And while it’s taken time for the former Fulham man to adapt, he seems to be getting a chance under Conte.
Spence, then, will be hoping for a similar if not quicker path to success with Spurs.
TBR’s View: Spence To Tottenham Has To Be A Done Deal
Surely Spurs have got this one over the line, especially so if players are even commenting on public domains to suggest a deal is in the offing?
In theory, Sessegnon and Spence could be a key duo for Tottenham on either wing. Both are modern full backs and both have the sort of qualities Conte looks for in his players.
If Spence follows Sessegnon’s advice here, then it seems Spurs will have another player in the bag soon enough.
