A number of Southampton fans have taken to Twitter in recent days to comment on reports from The Telegraph this week suggesting that they are one of the clubs interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur’s Ryan Sessegnon on loan.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men have endured a tough start to the campaign. Their hard-fought victory at Burnley on Saturday saw the side pick up points for the first time this term.
The supporters will be hoping that they enjoy a busy end to the window. The squad has a lot of quality, but perhaps lacks the depth required to kick on from the positive end to last season.
It does appear however, that they have targets in mind. And according to The Telegraph this week, one of the players they want is Sessegnon.
The report claims that Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is considering loaning the youngster out this summer. Sessegnon is yet to feature for Tottenham this season.
They do appear to face plenty of competition. The Telegraph noted that Burnley, Brighton and Ajax all have Sessegnon on their radar.
The Saints fans on social media largely seem to be in favour of a move. The 20-year-old has not had the easiest time at Spurs. But he has a serious amount of potential.
And with Hasenhuttl’s side surely needing more depth all down the left-hand side, it would be a big boost for Southampton to potentially win the race for the Tottenham youngster.
Here is how some of the supporters reacted to the links…

Good player and would be happy with this. Ideally would love an option to buy but imagine this is unlikely
