According to Sky Sports Ryan Sessegnon is our number one left-back target to potentially replace Danny Rose.
The article says although Rose has patched up his relationship with manager Mauricio Pochettino following his summer outburst, the 27-year-old’s long-term future at the club remains uncertain especially recent events in which Rose was left out of the matchday squad for the second successive Premier League game on Saturday and Pochettino insists he has been protecting his fitness as he continues to recover from a serious knee injury.
The article adds that Danny started against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League last week and is and expected to play against Leicester tonight , however he did say after the North London Derby he was “fuming” at being dropped from the squad for that game
The article adds that we have made no secret of our interest in the 17-year-old Sessegnon, and have been tracking him for more than a year and we also made a number of inquiries into his availability over the summer, last January, and the summer of 2016, according to Sky sources.
The article adds that Mauricio Pochettino is understood to be a huge fan of the England U19 international who established himself in Fulham’s first-team last season and then signed his first pro-deal at Craven Cottage.
The article also says tbsg Manchester United’s Luke Shaw, with whom Pochettino worked at Southampton, is understood to be the second-choice-target.
The former saints man has struggled with injuries since joining United in a £27m deal in 2014 and has been unable to break into Jose Mourinho’s plans ahead of Ashley Young, but the article adds that Pochettino would be confident of rediscovering the 22-year-old’s potential.
It concludes that Jose Mourinho is interested in bringing Rose to Old Trafford but he too his keeping tabs on Sessegnon
