Ahead of the summer transfer window, Ryan Sessegnon is in high demand.

However, according to Get West London, Slavisa Jokanovic believes that Ryan Sessegnon will stay at Fulham.

A handful of the best clubs in Europe are interested in the 16-year-old starlet who has burst onto the professional scene this year.

Sessegnon became the youngest ever Championship goal scorer and the first player born after the turn of the millennium to score in the Football League.

The left back, who can also play as a left winger, has grabbed an impressive seven goals for Fulham in his debut season and is wanted by some of the top teams around.

Premier League giants Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool all want the England under-19 international, whilst German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich and Spanish La Liga side Sevilla are also interested.

However, Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic believes that Sessegnon will sign a professional deal at Fulham when he turns 17 this month.

Jokanovic said:

“I am confident he will be a Fulham player.

“It not just depends on myself but depends on different sides too but I believe this is right place for him.

“He is a young player and he needs to learn – he needs the minutes with us and I believe he is in the right place for building himself and to be ready for an important step that is in front of him.

“All his life he is with Fulham and I am sure he is confident with us – I believe he has detected improvement and I believe he believes he’s in the right place.

“In life it is normal to show ambition and want more things but I believe in this moment it is the right moment for himself to stay with us and improve his promise.”
