The Fulham left-back, who can also play as a winger, has long been touted as a target for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
The club have thus far been unable to match the Cottagers’ asking price of £45m.
Sessegnon, of course, stayed at the club following their promotion to the Premier League but was unable to prevent their subsequent relegation, though he made a total of 38 appearances in all competitions in 2018/19, scoring twice and registering six assists.
Spurs, the report claims, are confident a deal can be done this summer as they attempt to bring in a flurry of new arrivals.
The same report claims that the club have reached an agreement with Leeds United to sign winger Jack Clarke, while Lyon’s Tanguy Ndombele is also set to complete a £55m move to north London.
Sessegnon would be an excellent addition for Spurs this summer.
He is a young player with heaps of potential who can potentially upgrade two positions for the club; Ben Davies is not a particularly brilliant back-up to Danny Rose at full-back, while there is precious little depth beyond Son Heung-Min on the left flank.
Doing a deal at less than half the club’s asking price would be astonishing work from chairman Daniel Levy and his driving a hard bargain will surely help Spurs in the long-run.
Sessegnon, after all, is out of contract next summer and the Mail claim he is not set to sign an extension, as he is aware of the interest in his services.
A coveted youngster with a remarkably high ceiling, bringing him in for £25m would be a bargain befitting Levy’s reputation as an exceptional negotiator.
