Tottenham are expected to wrap-up a £25million deal to sign Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon, as Mauricio Pochettino closes-in on his third signing of the summer.
Spurs have so far landed Tanguy Ndombele in a club-record deal, while Jack Clarke was signed from Leeds and then sent back to Elland Road on loan for the season.
And now the Daily Express reports that a deal for Cottagers left-back Sessegnon is expected to be secured over the coming days, although Tottenham are trying to offload Danny Rose before any transfer is done for the 19-year-old.
England star Rose has been linked with a move away from the club all summer and was left out of the pre-season tour of Singapore and China before returning to the side for the Audi Cup win in Munich.
PSG, Juventus and Atletico Madrid are all rumoured to be keen on the 29-year-old, although getting Rose out of the door and bringing in Sessegnon before Thursday’s deadline could prove to be a little problematic.
Spurs, meanwhile, are also hopeful that Fulham might accept a player plus cash deal for Sessegnon, with Josh Onomah or Georges-Kevin Nkoudou both offered to the Championship side.
