Fulham’s 18-year-old full back Ryan Sessegnon is reportedly on the cusp of a move to Spurs after reports linking the Young Lion away from Craven Cottage emerged yesterday.
With Fulham relegated with one of the worst defensive records in Premier League history, Sess is said to be being lined up by long-term admirers in the lily-white half of North London, who are looking to purchase him in a cut price deal from the figures suggested this time last year.
Sess was one of the stars of the Championship in 17/18, and a potential 50 million pound deal was rumoured. Now, it looks like he’ll be moving for around half that figure – with South London press journalist Rich Cawley saying the deal is at an advanced stage.
Mentioned to me today by a good source that Ryan Sessegnon to Tottenham is pretty close to done.

The rumour seems to be fairly plausible, with Spurs renowned admirers of the teenager and Sess looking to develop his talent at a club with more solid foundations and ambitions, this move is one to keep an eye out for this summer.
Keep it locked to VERSUS for more developments on this one, and in other young baller news, Trent Alexander-Arnold has broken the record for most assists in a Premier League season by a defender.
