Tottenham were never really in the title race but now their attention turns to going as far as possible in the Champions League and making sure they dine at Europe’s top table once more next season.
Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping to usher in a new era in a new stadium with some new blood to freshen up a squad that has felt the effects of fatigue throughout this campaign.
The international break provides a handy juncture at which to turn attention to the forthcoming transfer window but Spurs have not been active at all in the market since January 2018.
Surely that has to change this summer but who would be Tottenham’s dream arrival? Given that they need an injection of pace and some more English players to boost their homegrown quota, Ryan Sessegnon looks an ideal fit.
The Daily Mail reported last week that Spurs were readying a £50m bid as Sessegnon stalled on a new Craven Cottage deal with Fulham set for a swift return to the Championship.
£50m does seem steep for Sessegnon, given that he hasn’t set the world alight this season and is at a club set for relegation, but he has an incredible future ahead of him.
He genuinely has the ability of a young Gareth Bale – and can play at either left-back or on the left wing, with his searing pace, eye for goal and outstanding maturity.
If Tottenham could get him, it would add an entirely new dimension to their attack as they snap up one of the most talented English players around right now – potentially helping Pochettino gear up for a title challenge next season.
