Liverpool scouting highly-rated Championship full-back

Premier League giants Liverpool are scouting Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon, according to The Sun.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is understood to be tracking the Fulham youngster and weighing up a move after his impressive performances so far this season for the Cottagers.

Sessegnon burst onto the scene this season as he broke into Fulham’s first team. The England Under-17 international plays at left-back but can also play on the wing.

Despite being a defender, he has already scored two goals for the Cottagers this season. He netted the first in Fulham’s 2-2 draw with Cardiff City at Craven Cottage, and scored a last-minute equaliser to rescue a point at home to Burton Albion last week.

The 16-year-old is considered one of the hottest prospects in the Football League and has reportedly been subject to interest from Tottenham Hotspur, who made a move for the Londoner this summer.

Sessegnon stole the headlines when he scored against Cardiff earlier in the year, becoming the first goalscorer to be born since the turn of the century and the youngest ever goalscorer in the Championship.

Any prospective move to Liverpool would end an eight-year association with Fulham, as he joined back in 2008.

Fulham fans… what do you think? Will you sell Sessegnon? Is it important to keep your academy players? How good can he become? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
