Scott Parker at Spurs would be huge for Ryan Sessegnon

Tottenham Hotspur are no closer to finding out who their next manager will be but several interesting names have been linked to the vacancy.

Whoever is appointed in North London, they will have a huge task on their hands this summer as this current Spurs squad is in dire need of a rebuild, if not at the very least, a freshen up.

According to The Athletic, the next manager will have some extra talent on his hands as out-on-loan duo Oliver Skipp and Ryan Sessegnon are set to return from their respective clubs.

One name linked to the role is Fulham boss Scott Parker and given he’s worked with the latter, it could benefit the Lilywhites in the long run.

Do you want to see more of Sessegnon next season?

Yes, 100%!

Yes, 100%!

He's not ready!

He's not ready!

It is thought that Daniel Levy “thinks the world of” the 40-year-old, as per Football Insider, so if he does become their next boss, then Sessegnon’s career at Spurs could be in line for a massive boost.

The 20-year-old, who can play anywhere down the left flank, has only made 12 senior appearances for the club since Levy invested a whopping £25m into his signature back in the summer of 2019.

What is also in Sessegnon’s advantage is the fact that he has been playing for a Bundesliga outfit in Europe, whereas Skipp – as outstanding as he has been – has only featured in the Championship.

The young wide man has played 27 times in all competitions, where has delivered two goals and two assists. He has displayed his impressive defensive ability, managing two tackles per game in the Bundesliga, which is the second-most in Hoffenheim’s squad, as per WhoScored.

He could become genuine competition to Sergio Reguilon at left-back, and provide added cover to Heung-min Son further up the pitch.

Sessegnon has also thrown his weight behind Parker getting the job.

When asked about the potential of a reunion in North London, he told talkSPORT: “That would be very good! Everyone knows the relationship I have with Scott. He’s a top guy, top man and a top coach. He’s just an all-round great guy.”

Can you remember these Spurs kits? We'll start with an easy one, which season is this famous strip from?

There are plenty of reasons for and against hiring Parker. Fulham’s relegation will not put a glowing light on his credentials, though what is certain, he could be the best man to bring Sessegnon through as a future star at the club.

After all, he was once dubbed a “big, big talent” and a “fast wide player“. Parker would be game-changing for the England U21 starlet.

AND in other news, Spurs handed huge boost over £30m “wonderful talent”, Levy’s surely licking his lips
