Tottenham have had a bid worth up to £25 million for Fulham left-back Ryan Sessegnon rejected, according to The Telegraph.

Sessegnon, 17, wowed fans last season with a number of impressive displays in defence and on the wing for Championship side Fulham.

Spurs were apparently keen on signing the England Under-19 international in January, but a move failed to materialise.

Sessegnon signed his first professional deal with Fulham earlier this summer and many thought that meant he would be staying with his current club this season.

But it looks like Tottenham are attempting to change that by testing Fulham’s resolve with a huge bid.

However, reliable Spurs journalist Ben Pearce claims there has been no bid for Sessegnon.

Danny Rose isn’t expected to return from injury until next month, and his recent controversial comments mean he might find it tough to walk straight back into the side.

Rose’s task is made ever harder by Ben Davies’ form. The left-back scored in Tottenham’s opening weekend victory at Newcastle.

Given Rose’s uncertain future, Sessegnon would be a terrific signing for Spurs in the long-term.

The Telegraph claims Tottenham are also interested in Ryan’s twin brother Steven.

  1. Sooooooooooooooooooooo…..Fulham wanted £15m for him with 1 year remaining on his contract back in june. We showed no firm interest. He signed new contract. Now we have 25m bid rejected for him.

    This leaving it late strategy really works.
