Tottenham are expected to sign Fulham defender Ryan Sessegnon this summer, according to The Liverpool Echo.

Spurs have been tracking the 17-year-old for a while now and emerged as favourites to sign Sessegnon ahead of Liverpool earlier this week.

The Echo claims Liverpool have now pulled out of the race to sign the left-back, turning their attentions to other targets instead.

The story’s author, Neil Jones, went as far to say on Twitter: “He’s off to Spurs.”

Jurgen Klopp had been keen on signing Sessegnon to develop and eventually take over left-back duties from James Milner in the Liverpool side.

But Jones understands Liverpool were unsure about Sessegnon’s commitment to a move to Anfield. Those doubts have seemingly come to a head.

The England U19s international has been offered a professional contract by Fulham but Tottenham will look to swoop before he signs it.

Sessegnon scored seven goals in all competitions last season and, if signed, should prove a worthy understudy to Danny Rose while providing further competition for Ben Davies. He can also play as a left winger.

  1. Don’t know why I’m an lfc fan anymore sick of top targets going elsewhere because are owners won’t cough up then they wonder why we’re a cut beneath the others vigil van dijk go and get him instead of looking for cheaper options same old mistakes in this transfer window sick of it

  2. He is only a young kid don’t know what all the fuss is about. We need a young dynamic player who has premiership experience. Not a 17 year old who has played a handful of games in the championship. His agent have certainly hyped him up.

  3. I heard he wants to stay in London and work with a manger that has an excellent record for developing an promoting youth
