Tottenham Hotspur have already lost one full back this summer in Kieran Trippier and reports indicate that Danny Rose could still follow him out of the door before the end of the transfer window (the Mirror).

Fulham wide man Ryan Sessegnon is said to be the player Spurs have identified as the man to replace Rose. The 19-year-old has been linked with a move to Spurs all summer but a deal is yet to materialise so far.

However, a report in the Sun now claims that Tottenham are confident of sealing a £25m deal for Sessegnon with less than a week left until the close of the transfer window.

The report claims suggest that Tottenham and Fulham have been at loggerheads over a fee for the teenager but the Spurs chairman Daniel Levy now hopes to complete the deal shortly.

This news was met largely with apathy from Spurs Twitter, with many fans suggesting that they were tired of Levy’s penny-pinching tactics in the transfer window. However, others felt that it was a great deal for the club given the potential Sessegnon has.


Spurs Web Opinion

While Tottenham fans’ frustrations are understandable, Levy’s negotiating tactics have helped Spurs get great deals in the past and the Spurs chairman is unlikely to change his ways any time soon. If the club can get Sessegnon in for less than £25 million, then it does represent fantastic value for money.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. To be honest a lot of people are fed up with all the stories about who we are being linked with or supposedly signing the constant recycling and cheap trash journalism because there’s nothing better to write about has gone beyond boredom

  2. Everything I’ve seen of Sessegnon says he’s overrated, even at 25 million. What does he add to Spurs that Danny Rose doesn’t already, and better? And Tottenham’s so-called interest hasn’t been broadcast “all summer” but for the past two years. Every article says Spurs are “closing in” on him — If so it must have been a millimetre at a tie over the past two years. In saying “Tottenham fans frustrations are understandable” you’ve missed the point — boredom is not frustration.
