Ajax have entered the race to sign Tottenham starlet Ryan Sessegnon on loan, according to the Telegraph.
Earlier this week, we relayed another Telegraph story claiming Fulham are interesting in loaning Sessegnon, who joined Spurs from the Cottagers last summer. It is believed Jose Mourinho is reluctant to let the 20-year-old leave but Sessegnon is said to be desperate to play more regularly.
And now the same publication believes Ajax have asked Tottenham about Sessegnon.
The report suggests the left-back would be used in a more attacking role in Amsterdam, as Ajax boss Erik ten Hag is looking to replace Chelsea-bound Hakim Ziyech.
Ziyech, who scored against Spurs in last season’s memorable Champions League semi-final second leg, has been one of Ajax’s most influential players in recent seasons, so Sessegnon would have big boots to fill.
All of which raises questions over where Sessegnon’s future lies in terms of his position.
If Mourinho sees him as a left-back, he will continue to battle Ben Davies for a starting spot next term. But if he wants to play in a more advanced role, perhaps a loan would be best as there is too much competition in those areas at Tottenham.
