Highly-rated Fulham winger Ryan Sessegnon, rated at £22.5m by Transfermarkt, took his tally of Championship goals for the season to 14 as he scored in his side’s 2-1 win against Derby County at the Pride Park Stadium on Saturday, and Liverpool fans have urged their club to sign the in-form 17-year-old.
The left-sided teenager, who can play as a left-back or left winger but has predominantly started in the latter in recent weeks, has now found on the net nine times in 2018, while he scored a hat-trick for the Cottagers in their incredible 5-4 win against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane back in November.
Sessegnon looks destined to join one of the Premier League big guns even if Fulham are promoted, such as the quality he has shown in his 68 first-team appearances for the west London side.
While Liverpool have the likes of Sadio Mane and Mo Salah in attack, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp may be looking to add some competition for them this summer in order to keep their performances at the high standard they have been at this term.
Liverpool supporters were quick to have their say on Sessegnon via social media, and while one said “Ryan Sessegnon is the Championship version of Salah”, another said he could provide “competition for Sadio Mane”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Ryan Sessegnon is the championship version of Salah. Need to sign him ASAP to have 2 Salah’s in the team. @LFC

Really would love @LFC to go and buy that Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham that's kid is going to be something special… Scoring goals for fun playing on the wing/lb Klopp would really improve his game more.. #LFC #SummerTransfer ?

Going to be one hell of a fight for Ryan Sessegnon this summer. Would love us to get him. #LFC

Wonder if, even though Andy Robertson has pretty much boxed off the LB position now, #LFC could go for Ryan Sessegnon initially as competition for Sadio Mane.
He’s scored 11 and assisted two in 18 games on the left wing for Fulham, and he’s 17. pic.twitter.com/IN2JIH8X0b

I’d personally love #LFC to buy Sessegnon from Fulham but leave him with them for the next 18 months! What a sensational young talent! Developing so well.
