Tottenham are aiming at Sessegnon

The London Tottenham have finished constructing a new stadium and intend to enter the transfer market, which has not happened with the club for more than a year. This time the Spurs are interested in the Fulham lateral, Ryan Sessegnon.

Last season, Fulham got out of the Championship and the breakout star of the team was then 17-year old Ryan Sessegnon. Despite the left lateral position the footballer often joined the attacks and ended up on the edge in the formation with three central defenders. Thanks to the super-attacking game the footballer scored 16 goals and made eight assists in the Championship last season.

The player of the England youth national team did not get such space in the EPL anymore. Plus, the Cottagers’ commitment to attack led to them conceding more than 770 goals in the league and relegating six rounds before the end of the tournament. Sessegnon scored this season only two goals and made six assists.

Tottenham decided to take advantage of the footballer’s relegation to a lower division and joined the battle, just like Liverpool did in their time, when they lured Robertson from Hull City. The Spurs evaluated the player in 40 million pounds.

A problem with a left defender can observed in Tottenham. Rose or Ben Davis play on this position most often, but none of them can bring security to the team. Therefore, the Spurs conceded seven goals in the last five matches and completely said goodbye to the championship race, infiltrating the battle for the Champions League with Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd.

Bookmakers also have the opinion that the next club of the 18-year old winger will be Tottenham. The odds on Sessegnon’s transfer to the London side are 2,75. The odds on him to leave Fulham in the summer are 1,4. The next in the pursuit of the footballer are Manchester United (6,00) and Juventus (7,00). The French PSG conclude the contenders’ four with the odds of 11,00.
