In-demand Fulham star Ryan Sessegnon scored twice in his side’s 6-0 win against Burton Albion at Craven Cottage on Saturday, and Liverpool fans have urged their club to sign the young talent, who could cost £50m according to The Times.
Despite his tender years the left-sided player – who can play on the wing or as a full-back – has already played more than 60 matches for the Cottagers, and his brace against the Brewers took his tally for the season to nine in 28 Championship appearances, also providing a further four assists.
The Reds currently have Andrew Robertson and Alberto Moreno as their left-back options, but they could still be interested in bringing the highly-rated 17-year-old to Anfield too, although they could face competition for his signature from Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.
Liverpool supporters were quick to have their say on his latest display via social media, and while one said “we need to sign Sessegnon”, another said ‘he is better than Dele Alli’.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Dear @John_W_Henry @PeterMooreLFC can you please sign Sessegnon this window. Perfect backup if speed merchants Salah or Mane are out. Less not miss out again like Deli Ali, who he is better than, please in form Klopp.

If Liverpool are going to do any buy now for the summer deals I think Sessegnon should be on that list and I'd even let him stay at Fulham next season
