In Focus: Sessegnon has the attributes to be next Spurs hotshot

As reported by The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur are plotting a move for one of the brightest young prospects in Britain, Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.

What’s the story?

Mauricio Pochettino is no stranger to pulling a player from relative obscurity and moulding them into an elite talent. We saw with Dele Alli that the Argentinian has an eye for a player and the magic touch to help them realise their potential.

Now he’s seeking his next young superstar and doesn’t need to leave London to find him.

The Sun say he’s weighing up a £12m move for Fulham wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon, a player who has been a star on their left flank all season.

With Liverpool also hovering and willing to invest in the left-back, the race is on to sign the talented teenager.

Is he that good?

Initially breaking into the Fulham side as a left-back, he’s shown the versatility and attacking prowess to play up and down the entire left hand side.

With seven goals and three assists in 30 appearances, ten of which have been from the bench, it’s clear he is making quite the impact in the English Championship.

He needs first team football most of all if he’s to progress and develop into an elite player and even if Spurs can’t quite offer that next season, he’s still worth investing in. They could always loan him back to Fulham for another season or another suitable club.

Getting in early on his future could be key to secure a 17 year old who has all the attributes to be a roaring success at a top Premier League club.
