Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has reiterated the club do not intend to sell Ryan Sessegnon in January.
The 17-year-old, who is reportedly wanted by Tottenham and Manchester United, scored twice in Fulham’s 4-1 win over Ipswich on Tuesday night.
After the game, Jokanovic was asked to clarify his stance on Sessegnon’s future.
“Yes, Sessegnon is probably the most talented player in this country and this age. His natural physical preparation is amazing and he doesn’t have problems for arriving in the box from a far position and at the end,” said the Fulham boss. (Quotes via Football.London.)
“We have opportunity to observe the beginning of one brilliant football career because, for myself, it will be very strange if this player doesn’t play in the English national team.
“I don’t know if this interesting thing about this player, I can help so much but this kid and the people around him are clever enough, after 50 odd games, he’s in a very good situation and we are going to see what people around him and what Fulham will decide.
“Between us, I don’t have any information that we want to sell him and for another side I don’t want to sell him, I have no intention.
“What I try explain, it’s not in my decision, Fulham don’t want to sell him, he doesn’t say any words and at the end I’m thinking of him in the future for the season what is ahead of us, and for next season too.”
Depending on the extent of Danny Rose’s latest injury, Spurs could be forced into the market this month. Sessegnon would be ideal, but Fulham will surely hold out for a huge fee.
