Ryan Sessegnon: In demand

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has reiterated his belief that Ryan Sessegnon will still be at the club next season.

The 16-year-old has scored seven goals in his first season for the Cottagers, attracting interest from a range of top clubs, with Liverpool being the most seriously linked.

Manchester United are apparently the latest to join Liverpool, Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Sevilla in the chase for the left-back.

GetWestLondon claims that Sessegnon will sign a professional deal with the club when he turns 17 years old.

His manager insists that Fulham is the best club for him to continue his development as one of England’s brightest prospects.

He said: “I am confident he will be a Fulham player. It not just depends on myself but depends on different sides too but I believe this is right place for him.

“He is a young player and he needs to learn – he needs the minutes with us and I believe he is in the right place for building himself and to be ready for an important step that is in front of him.

“All his life he is with Fulham and I am sure he is confident with us – I believe he has detected improvement and I believe he believes he’s in the right place.

“In life it is normal to show ambition and want more things but I believe in this moment it is the right moment for himself to stay with us and improve his promise.”
