Tottenham edge clear of Manchester United in summer race for Sessegnon

Tottenham face stiff competition for Ryan Sessegnon this summer but are reportedly currently in the driving seat for the Fulham ace.

Tottenham are now ahead of Manchester United in the race for Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon, according to the Sun.

They report that as well as tussling each other for a spot in the top four, Spurs and United are also battling for blistering wideman Sessegnon, who has been relegated this season with Fulham.

And the sides they both beat in the Champions League last 16 – Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain – are also apparently interested.

 

Dortmund would be especially interesting given the experience they give to young players and the success Jadon Sancho has had out there.

But it is apparently Mauricio Pochettino’s willingness to offer first-team chances to young players which has apparently caught Sessegnon’s eye and made him prefer a move across London as opposed to the north west.

Sessegnon was reportedly valued at £50m last season, but Fulham’s relegation back to the Championship and the fact that he has just one more year left on his contract means his market value has declined.

Fulham face losing him for nothing more than a £500,000 compensation fee if his contract runs all the way down. That could make them keen to sell, especially as they look to balance the books following relegation and offer Spurs the chance to snap up a hugely promising young English talent.
