Fulham plot Tottenham raid for exciting talent underused by Mourinho


An out of favour Tottenham star has emerged as an early target for newly-promoted Fulham after it was reported he would be ‘open’ to the move.

The Cottagers returned to the Premier League after just one season away via the play-offs.

To avoid a repeat of the first-season relegation experienced last time, Scott Parker will look to bolster his squad.

And according to ESPN, one such addition could be a very familiar face indeed.

Tottenham left-back Ryan Sessegnon left Craven Cottage for North London last summer in a deal worth roughly £25m.

Despite seemingly having the world at his feet, Sessegnon was given little chance to impress under Jose Mourinho.

After overcoming an injury to make his debut in November, the 20-year-old made just 12 appearances in all competitions.

Now, ESPN claim that Fulham are ‘keen’ to reunite with their former academy graduate, something Sessegnon is ‘keen’ on.

Sessegnon Tottenham TEAMtalk

The loan route is touted, something Spurs may be more willing to agree to given his limited scope for action in the current squad.

Sessegnon is capable of operating in any position down the left channel, and would add versatility to Scott Parker’s side.


Prolific striker Spurs-bound?

Habib Diallo is reported to have made a move to Tottenham his top priority this summer amid growing claims he will leave Metz.

Our exclusive back in November claimed the 25-year-old striker was being watched by Tottenham scouts ahead of a move.

Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is seeking additional firepower to keep Harry Kane on his toes and the Metz attacker appears to look the part.

He has struck an impressive 48 goals in 111 appearances for the Ligue 1 side. However, it should be noted that two of those seasons were in Ligue 2.

Nonetheless, Spurs are not alone in their interest and BeIN Sports claims a clutch of rival Premier League clubs are also keen. Back in November, Watford and Norwich were mentioned as suitors. However, their relegation from the Premier League makes an approach unlikely.
