Ryan Sessegnon’s future at Fulham has been one of the major talking points of the summer transfer window.

The England Under-21 international has just twelve months to run on his existing contract at Craven Cottage and has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Guardian have previously reported that the 19-year-old has already told Fulham that he will not renew his contract and wants to complete a switch to Spurs instead.

Ex-Liverpool defender Steve Nichol, however, has urged his former side to make a move for the left-sided player who would be able to provide competition to Andy Robertson.

Sessegnon is regarded as one of the brightest talents in English football and Fulham are said to be holding out for £40million while Daniel Levy is hopeful of negotiating a lower fee (Sky Sports).

Danny Rose has been rumoured to be one of eight players who Spurs are willing to sell this summer (The Mail) while fellow left-back Ben Davies has recently signed a new five-year contract (BBC).

Nichol told ESPN: “Ryan Sessegnon; He is not starting but he is there to push the others already in the first team (at Liverpool),” Nicol said.

“He would be there to make the starting eleven better. In two or three years time he would be pushing Robertson or whoever it is down the left hand side.”
