Tottenham Hotspur could announce the £25m signing of Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham next week, per Football Insider.
And the new report claims that the club have made progress in negotiations over the 19-year-old.
Sessegnon has reportedly made it clear that he does not intend to sign a new contract at Craven Cottage and wishes to move to Spurs.
That could be completed this month, while there are negotiations over a move for Steven Sessegnon, too, with the right-back holding the potential to replace Kieran Trippier, who was sold to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.
After Trippier’s move to Atletico, this deal comes at very little cost to Spurs.
They have received £20m for the England international, per Football FanCast sources, and reinvesting that into a deal for Sessegnon would see them pay just £5m for an excellent prospect.
The teenager can play at left-back and on the wing and has the potential to blossom under Mauricio Pochettino.

He struggled throughout the 2018/19 campaign but he was playing in a remarkably poor team as Fulham dropped into the Championship.
He still managed to score two goals and register six assists in the top-flight and has shown an ability to get up and down the flank.
Pochettino has worked his magic on the likes of Danny Rose and Luke Shaw in the past; Sessegnon could be the next beneficiary.
