Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon’s future at the Championship side still appears to be uncertain ahead of the new campaign.

The 19-year-old as one year left to run on his contract at Craven Cottage and has apparently informed the club that he will not be signing a new deal (Guardian).

Sessegnon has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, with The Mirror claiming that the Fulham are fully aware that the England Under-21 international wants to make the switch to North London.

Former Sky Sports and the Press Association journalist, Pete O’Rourke has claimed that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is refusing to pay over the odds for Sessegnon given his contract situation.

O’Rourke told Betting.com: “A move across to North London appears to have dragged on as the tough negotiating Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is refusing to pay over the odds for Sessegnon, considering he is in the final year of his contract at Fulham.”

The Daily Mail have previously reported that Fulham are holding out for around £40million for the highly-rated youngster, while Spurs are only prepared to pay around £25million.

Opinion

Sessegnon would be a huge signing for Spurs this summer given his raw potential and ability to play almost anywhere on the left side of the pitch.

However, whether Levy can negotiate a deal for a player who is likely to be attracting interest from a number of other clubs remains to be seen.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Better with Firpo but i can live with Sessegnon under the guidance of Poch but i would say 20-25 mill should be enough, anything over that would be too much.
