Ryan Sessegnon's recent performances will put him firmly back on Tottenham's radar
Ryan Sessegnon has returned from injury and is starting to inspire a turnaround at Fulham.
Although he is yet to start since making his comeback from injury, Sessegnon’s direct contributions have earned Fulham four points in the last two matches.
After two weeks out, Sessegnon returned to action against Wolves and scored the opening goal, although a late Romain Saiss equaliser denied Fulham the three points.
And then, on Saturday, he came off the bench to set Aleksandar Mitrovic up for a winner against Huddersfield Town.
The 18-year-old’s recent performances will have Tottenham Hotspur interested again.
Sessegnon is a long-term target for Spurs with The Telegraph reporting last summer that they were lining up a £35m bid.
As a left-back turned left-winger, the teenage starlet burst onto the scene with 16 goals and eight assists helping to fire Fulham to promotion last season.
This term, he has started impressively with two goals and four assists in 18 Premier League matches.
At such a young age, he is already excelling in the top flight and can only get better, whether he plays as a defender or as a winger.
The England under-21 international, who has been tipped for a senior call-up, could be a perfect option for Spurs at left-back.
And his recent displays will be catching Mauricio Pochettino’s eye ahead of the January window.
