Ryan Sessegnon: In demand

Manchester United are trying to jump ahead of Liverpool in the queue to sign Fulham full-back Ryan Sessegnon, according to reports.

The Daily Mirror reports United are the latest club to have enquired about the 16-year-old left-back, who is also being chased by Arsenal and Man City.

Sessegnon is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in English football and has played for England at U16, U17 and U19 level.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is believed to have him high up his summer wanted list, but United are now also serious about the player, who has played 28 times for Fulham, scoring seven times this season.

Fulham are believed to have previously turned down offers from Arsenal, although they might well cash in on the player this summer if the prospective deal involves a loan-back option.

Jose Mourinho does not have a fantastic reputation of developing young players so the finally line of the report is bizarre.

The piece claims United “hope their reputation of bringing through young players will be influential”.
