Tottenham to launch January right-back bid after summer snub

Steven Sessegnon TEAMtalk

Tottenham have already switched their attention to January transfer targets, with a new right-back high on their agenda.

Spurs sold England star Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid this summer, while it is common knowledge that Sergie Aurier does not have a long-term future in north London.

That leaves youngsters Kyle Walker-Peters and Juan Foyth as the club’s main right-back options, although the latter has played the majority of his career centrally.

And with that in mind, The Sun claims that Spurs remain keen on signing another Sessegnon from Fulham.

Having already brought in Ryan Sessegnon over the summer, twin brother Steven will now be the subject of further interest in the new year.

 

Fulham are said to have rejected a £3million offer from Spurs when they were negotiating a deal for his brother, and while injured Ryan is yet to make an appearance for his new side, Steven has started four of Fulham’s Championship games at right-back.

Steven Sessegnon’s Craven Cottage contract runs out in 2022, with Fulham also having the option to extend the deal by an additional 12 months, which is likely to mean that Spurs will have to up their offer significantly to get their man.
