Fenerbahce are reportedly lining up a January move to sign forgotten Tottenham wing-back Ryan Sessegnon, according to Takvim.
The Turkish outlet claims the club’s manager, Vitor Pereira, is a fan of the 21-year-old and has asked scouts to monitor his progress ahead of a potential move in the winter.
The report adds that Fenerbahce are ‘determined’ to sign Sessegnon, while they also hold an interest in Everton midfielder Jean-Philippe Gbamin and they will look to secure a transfer for either player.
It was reported over the summer that Sessegnon had been offered to the Turkish Super Lig giants on a season-long loan, but a move never managed to materialise.
The England U21 international joined Spurs for a reported fee of £25 million, but he has struggled to kick on from the successful breakthrough he had at Fulham.
He made just 12 appearances in his first season at the club, but then enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Bundesliga side Hoffenheim last year.
Sessegnon has made just three appearances so far in the new campaign as a result of a knock sustained on international duty last month.

It has been tough to see Sessegnon’s struggles at Spurs, because there is clearly a quality and talented player in there. Daniel Levy would probably only consider a loan move in January, though, as he likely won’t be willing to lose him on a permanent deal.
