Report: Levy’s slow pursuit could see Spurs miss out on key transfer target

Ryan Sessegnon looks set to leave relegated Fulham this summer and is not short of potential suitors.

The Sun report that the England Under-21 international who has just twelve months left on his contract is attracting interest from Inter Milan and is willing to remain with the Cottagers to be able to hold discussions with the Italian giants during the winter transfer window and leave on a free transfer at the end of the next campaign.

If Sessegnon walked away from Fulham following the completion of his contract they would only be able to pocket a £500,000 fee in training compensation.  This low fee would certainly put the Championship side in the predicament of trying to sell him either this summer or in January claw back an amount in excess of half a million.

The report claims that Sessegnon was valued at around £50million last summer but struggled in his first season of Premier League football.

Tottenham have been heavily linked with a move for the 19-year-old with the Guardian previously claiming that he has set his heart on a move to Mauricio Pochettino’s side despite him also being on the radar of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.


Daniel Levy had better get his act together or Spurs are set to miss out on one of English football’s brightest talents who will be available for just a fraction of his true market value due to his contract situation.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I will be suprised if we get any of our top targets,levy just drags his feet and will only offer peanuts.Man utd are just going for all of our top targets knowing they can pay better wages and out bid us.We end up with last minute bargain basement buys, they get top4 with players we are targeting,we end up 5th or 6th and lose poch.But levy would have saved about 100m.

  2. Levy if you do not wake up and buy, then please leave the club because you are going to ruin us. Having a state of the art football ground would not win any honors. Keep this up and you will find Spurs supporters against you. If we lose Poch it will be your fault. we are going to end up with not one new player and seeing two of our best players leave. Good work from your end Levy.

  3. What does our chairman not get about going and getting a player/s that we need right now,not next week or the week after.
    Spurs fans can watch again while all the best players go to other teams and we wait for a bargain.
    Does he and the board want keep the best manager we can get at the moment,it seems they are more worried about the
    corporate lot and how much we can make with training ground and American football.Stop taking the piss out of the fans
    or have you lost touch with them as well.Are you bothered ?

  4. Normal for Levy
    Tight fisted!
    Thinks he is a good negotiator!
    Afraid notJust look how badly he managed the costs of the new stadium!
    Badly managed late opening ,tried project management in house with no skill set!
