Seriously, is £25 million not enough for Fulham?

Published

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has put together one of the strongest squads in the division since joining the club in 2015, and the former Watford boss will be keen to ensure his hard work is rewarded with a place in the Premier League next season.

The Serbian boss has also been lucky with the quality coming through the academy of the west London club, and the emergence of young Ryan Sessegnon last season was arguably the revelation of the Championship campaign.

The now 17-year-old has understandably attracted interest from Premier League clubs following a series of sensational performances for the Cottagers, and reports are emerging today that Tottenham have had a £25 million bid for the player turned down.

The fee seems unfathomable for a teenage Championship left back, but the potential Sessegnon has shown in his fledgling career is unrivalled in the division.

Spurs are experienced in plucking exciting young full backs from the Football League, and the career path of Gareth Bale will be familiar to many.

Bale began his career as a left back before being converted into a winger, and Sessegnon has already proven that the potential is there for a similar switch, having scored 5 times and provided a further 3 assists in just 17 Championship starts last season.

Sessegnon has vast potential, but how much are clubs willing to pay to acquire his services, and what will it take to convince Jokanovic to part with this most prestigious of talents?

We all know that transfer fees have spiralled out of control, but surely the Cottagers couldn’t turn down a bid in excess of £35 million, should Spurs up their offer?

A sum that big could transform a Championship side into title contenders, and with a decent sell on clause inserted into any deal, surely that would mark good business for the west London outfit.

How much do you think Sessegnon is worth?
