Tottenham are closing in on an impressive £25million move for Fulham star Ryan Sessegnon, according to a report.
Sessegnon’s current contract at Craven Cottage runs until the end of the next season, and they risk losing the 18-year-old for free in the summer of 2020 if he refuses to sign a new deal.
Speculation has since been rife that the West London club are keen to cash in on the England Under-21 star this summer and there will be plenty of interest in the versatile left-footed player.
Reports have claimed that Manchester United and Liverpool have both compiled ‘detailed scouting reports’ on Sessegnon ahead of a potential swoop, but Spurs seem to be the most serious suitors.
Now, a report from Footballinsider247 claims that a medical for Sessegnon has been ‘pencilled in’ ahead of a £25million move to Tottenham.
Jack Clarke and Tanguy Ndombele have already joined Spurs this summer and the arrive of England U21 international Sessegnon would continue the trend of buying young, promising players for Pochettino to develop.
The club are in need of reinforcements at full-back as Kieran Trippier sealed a £20million move to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday while Danny Rose looks set to leave in a cut-price deal.
