Tottenham Hotspur are set to finally complete the signing of Ryan Sessegnon this summer amid Fulham’s interest in Georges-Kevin Nkoudou and Josh Onomah, per The Daily Telegraph.
The Fulham full-back, who can also play as a winger, has been linked with Spurs throughout the summer transfer window.
And it now appears that the two clubs have made a breakthrough in talks, with the recently relegated Cottagers interested in two Spurs players.
The Telegraph reports that the Championship club could receive £20m for Sessegnon and then reinvest part of that money in deals for Onomah and Nkoudou.
Onomah has not played for Spurs since 2017, when he came on as a late substitute in a 4-0 win over Watford, while Nkoudou, ironically, last made an appearance for the first-team against Fulham, providing a late assist to Harry Winks in a 2-1 Premier League win.

This is genuinely astonishing.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy appears to have tricked the Championship club into believing that both Onomah and Nkoudou are good investments.
The pair have been frozen out at Spurs and have made a combined two starts in the Premier League.
No fees are mentioned in the Telegraph report but to think that Spurs could pay £20m for a young player with a high ceiling – he scored two goals and laid on six assists in a poor Fulham team last season – and then instantly recoup some of that money by offloading two players who are clearly categorised as deadwood would be a phenomenal deal.
Levy appears to have been in negotiations with Fulham for quite some time now but if he has made the breakthrough that is being suggested, then that would explain why.
He seems to be closing in on pulling off a blinder in the transfer market.
