If the latest reports are to be believed, Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on the capture of a new teenage starlet.
Earlier this week, The Mirror claimed that Liverpool have pulled out of the race to sign 17-year-old Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham, paving the way for Spurs to swoop in.
The British publication reports that the left-back is likely to sign for the North London outfit after the Reds learned that he was not committed to a switch to Anfield.
Tottenham may well be in the market for a new left-back this summer amid reports that injured Danny Rose could be on his way.
According to The Mirror, Manchester United are leading the race for the England international, who is believed to be keen on returning to the North.
Spurs have had success recruiting young talent in recent years, most notably the capture of Dele Alli, who at the age of 21 has become an integral member of Mauricio Pochettino’s team.
Amid reports that Sessegnon, who made 30 appearances for Fulham in all competitions this season, could be on his way to Spurs, supporters have had their say.

Whilst Sessegnon will undoubtably become a top player, I think it means Rose or Davies is leaving& it will more than likely be Rose ????#COYS

If Sessegnon happens he'll have plenty of time to get use to the philosophy #THFC
