Fulham sensation Ryan Sessegnon would prefer to join Tottenham over Manchester United or Liverpool, according to the Mirror.

Sessegnon, still only 17, has been a sensation since breaking into the Fulham first-team last season – he has scored 14 goals in the Championship this term.

The teenager initially plied his trade as a left-back, but he has been more effective on the wing lately.

He recently praised Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic for playing him higher up the pitch, something he thinks is responsible for his fine goalscoring form.

Last month, reports emerged claiming Spurs are willing to pay £35 million to sign Sessegnon.

There have also been suggestions the player himself is keen on a move to Liverpool.

But the latest murmurings contend Sessegnon indeed has his heart set on Tottenham.

That’s according to the Mirror, who claim the England Under-19 international is eager to player under Mauricio Pochettino given the Argentine’s track record of developing young English players.

Only time will tell which club Sessegnon decides to join in the end, but one’s thing for sure: he is certain to leave Fulham in the near future, and there will be a scramble for his signature.
