Tottenham Hotspur have been long-term admirers of Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon, pre-dating his move into the Premier League this season.

Sessegnon set the Championship on fire last season with his goals, pace, and assists, but has struggled to adapt to Prem life since the club’s promotion.

Fulham have now already been confirmed as relegated this season, meaning it may become far easier for Spurs to pry the teenager away.

This is especially true after Fulham spent over £100m in the summer to prepare for a Premier League survival push.

Fulham are said to be demanding £40m for the promising youngster, but after failing to live up to the bill in the top flight, Spurs and Levy are said to only be willing to part with £25m (Daily Mail).

Sessegnon also only has 12 months left on his contract, and Spurs could smell an opportunity for a bargain, however, Manchester United and PSG are both said to also be interested.
