Tottenham Hotspur have raced into pole position to land Fulham attacker Ryan Sessegnon, according to a report from The Sun.
The Cottagers were relegated back to the Championship after a 4-1 defeat to Watford on Tuesday night.
An exodus of star players is likely to occur following the drop; with Sessegnon set to be right at the front of the queue.
The 18-year-old has just one year remaining on his current deal and that could mean a cut-price deal is on offer for Spurs.
Fulham won’t want to risk losing their star attraction for nothing at the end of next season and could be tempted into a sale.
It seems likely that other clubs will hold interest but Spurs were the club who pursued him last summer; only to balk at the £50 million price tag,
There is little surprise that teams will chase Sessegnon given the potential he possesses.
If it a fair assessment though that if teams do sign the youngster it won’t be based on his form of the last eight months.
The academy graduate has netted just twice this season, although his six assists offer encouragement.
Spurs have missed out on younger players in previous seasons and the signing of Sessegnon would definitely add something to their ranks.
