Ryan Sessegnon TEAMtalk

Tottenham reportedly ready to reject all bids for Ryan Sessegnon this summer, despite claims that Barcelona are chasing the youngster.

Recent reports suggested that the Catalan giants were looking to bring in the 20-year-old, who cost Spurs £25million last summer.

The club have signed Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech for next season, with the likes of Willian and Pedro set to move on.
