According to The Sun, Ryan Sessegnon is ready to run down his contract with Fulham before joining Borussia Dortmund at the end of the 2019-2020 campaign.
Tottenham Hotspur continue to be strongly linked with a swoop for Sessegnon, who starred for Fulham during their 2017-18 Championship campaign, and The Daily Mail have even described him as a key target for the north London club.
The England Under-21 international has not shown the same form in the Premier League, but has been able to gain some valuable experience of top-flight football.
At the age of 18, Sessegnon has scored 25 goals in 115 appearances for Fulham, who have already been relegated back to the Championship.
It had been thought that the teenager would leave Craven Cottage this summer, with Tottenham potentially completing a deal for the left-sided player.
However, according to The Sun, Sessegnon is ready to see out his Fulham contract – which expires in 2020 – before moving to Dortmund on a free transfer.
Jadon Sancho is just one example of a young English player who has left the Premier League behind to star in Germany.
Sessegnon is certainly a talent, but is unlikely to receive too much first-team football for Tottenham next season if he makes the move to Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Dortmund, on the other hand, have handed Sancho a starring role since his arrival and could be ready to offer Sessegnon similar opportunities.

The Fulham youngster might well feel that his career would be best served by playing another season of Championship football, before heading abroad for a couple of years ahead of a potential return to the Premier League.
Tottenham missed out on the chance to sign the versatile teenager last summer and could now be frustrated once again with a move to Dortmund seemingly a genuine possibility.
