According to The Sun we will make a new bid for Fulham’s teenage star Ryan Sessegnon — with the asking price said to be an eye watering £50million for the 17 year-old.

Spurs have been long linked with the Roehampton born Sessegnon even before his promotion to the first team a year ago and supposedly looked  at him again at the start of the season.

However he chose to sign a new deal with the west London club and carry on playing at Championship level,allowing Fulham to protect themselves by not losing their prized asset for next to nothing.

However the article says Spurs still want Sessegnon ,who isn’t disimilar to a certain Gareth Bale, and have plans to try and get him when the time is right, with January a possibility but summer being more likely and they do know it is going to cost them.

With Sessegnon well courted Fulham know they can command huge money for him and that huge figure of £50m is already being whispered by those involved.

The Sun reported last month how Manchester United are interested but privately Sessegnon would prefer Spurs. And all that is well and good but as the article concludes it will be United’s, as well as Tottenham and other Premier League club suitors’ first hurdle to convince the Championship side to sell the talented youngster.

The Roehampton-born teen joined the Cottagers in 2008, completing with their Under-nine team along with his twin brother Steven, who has also been tipped for a bright future.

What do you guys think. Overpriced for a talented but relatively inexperienced teenager? or a sound investment for the future especially if Danny Rose jumps ship in the summer. Let us know your thoughts.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. 50 mil for a youngster playing in the first division, is utter madness, he obviously has talent and that has to be paid for, 10 mil would be reasonable and then rising in increments as the youngster progresses to the sort of level many people think he can attain. The Premier league is like no other and talented players run the risk of take no prisoner defenders, he would do well to be able to stay out of harms way, after all, he is still growing.
