Tottenham Hotspur are leading the race to sign Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon, according to the London Evening Standard.

Sessegnon was heavily linked with a move to Spurs last summer and that speculation has re-emerged ahead of the coming transfer window.

Fulham are expected to sell the left-back, who can also played further forward, this summer following their relegation from the Premier League to the Championship.

And the Standard claims Tottenham are at the front of the queue of clubs hoping to lure Sessegnon.

The 18-year-old is out of contract at the end of next season, and Fulham are apparently expecting bids of between £20-25 million.

It is believed Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus are also keeping tabs on Sessegnon.

Foreign clubs will be able to open talks with the teenager in January over a possible free transfer in the summer of 2020.

However, the Standard believes Sessegnon wants to stay in England and has identified Spurs as an ideal next step.

The signs are certainly looking good for Tottenham, but competition from other English clubs could throw a spanner in the works.
