Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham face a battle with Paris Saint-Germain to sign Fulham’s £50m-rated winger Ryan Sessegnon this summer
The transfer window may be closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, the latest on Ryan Sessegnon…
Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham face a battle with Paris Saint-Germain to sign Fulham’s £50m-rated winger Ryan Sessegnon this summer, according to a report by TeamTalk.
Sessegnon has been with Fulham since joining the club as a child and has progressed through the youth ranks to become one of the hottest properties in European football.
The 17-year-old broke in to the first team as a left-back but has been playing further forward this season and it’s led to him providing 15 goals and 6 assists in his 44 league games so far this season.
His performances have seen Sessegnon named as the Championship Player of the Season while he was also nominated for the PFA Young Player of the Year despite playing in the Championship.
Understandably, his potential has alerted a number of top Premier League clubs with TeamTalk claiming that Man Utd, Liverpool and Tottenham are among the clubs to have expressed their interest in recent months.
Reports late last week suggested that United were ready to steal a march on their rivals by formalising their interest after Jose Mourinho identified Sessegnon as the ideal replacement for Luke Shaw.
However, it seems the English trio will face fresh competition as TeamTalk are citing a report from the Daily Express that claims PSG are now confident they can lure Sessegnon to France this summer.
The teenager has just over two years left to run on his current contract at Craven Cottage but Fulham are going to find it extremely difficult to keep hold of him this summer even if they gain promotion to the top flight.
TeamTalk suggest it will take a fee of around £50m to sign Sessegnon but PSG have the financial firepower to compete with the likes of United, Liverpool and Spurs so it’s going to be interesting to see where he ends up if he does leave Fulham this summer.
