Tottenham have offered £30million plus Josh Onomah for Fulham star Ryan Sessegnon, according to reports.

The report claims that Spurs are hopeful this latest bid will be enough to secure the signing of the young left-back ahead of Thursday’s deadline.

Mauricio Pochettino has identified the 19-year-old as one of his primary targets this summer, particularly with Danny Rose’s future in doubt, and Tottenham will hope to seal their third signing of the window over the next few days.

It’s understood that the England Under-21 international, who can left-back or left-wing, is keen on a move to north London and is hoping to make more of an impact on the Premier League than he did with the relegated Cottagers last season.

Talks are said to have progressed slowly all summer but Spurs are hoping that the addition of 22-year-old midfielder Onomah could persuade Scott Parker’s men to finally do business.

The Spurs academy graduate spent last year on loan at Sheffield Wednesday and has found his first-team chances at Spurs diminish even further after the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele in a club-record deal this summer.
