Tottenham are worried they will miss out on signing Ryan Sessegnon because of the Fulham’s owner’s bid to buy Wembley stadium, according the London Evening Standard.
Spurs have been linked with a move for Sessegnon for some time now, with many reports suggesting Mauricio Pochettino’s side are the frontrunners for the teenager’s signature.
However, Sessegnon is now expected to stay at Fulham this summer after the Londoners were promoted to the Premier League via the Championship play-offs.
The 18-year-old scored 16 goals across the campaign and provided an assist in the play-off final to help his side earn promotion to the top-flight.
It is believed Fulham may still listen to offers around the £50 million mark for Sessegnon, but Tottenham’s pursuit of the winger seems to have hit another snag.
According to the Standard, Fulham owner Shahid Khan’s bid to buy Wembley in order to host NFL games at the national stadium could cause friction with Daniel Levy, who plans to host NFL games at Spurs’ new stadium.
As a result, the two owners will be in direct competition. Whether that will affect transfer dealings between Tottenham and Fulham remains to be seen – but the roadblocks concerning Sessegnon appear to be piling up.
