Spurs are edging ever closer to completing a deal to sign Fulham star Ryan Sessegnon.
The Premier League outfit have been chasing Sessegnon for some time now with a deal being on and off for a number of months.
However, according to the latest reports from the Sun, Spurs owner Daniel Levy is now confident of completing a deal for the youngster for a fee of between £20m-25m.
Sessegnon’s move to Spurs would put to an end one of the longest and most protracted transfer affairs in recent times in the English game, and would give the young left winger the chance to once again show his worth in the Premier League after a disappointing first effort with Fulham last term.
The England under-21 star burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old and went on to play a major role as the Cottagers romped to Premier League promotion two seasons ago under Slavisa Jokanovic.
However, their year back in the top flight did not go to plan, and they were subsequently relegated back to the Championship with Sessegnon showing nowhere near the sort of form he had shown just 12 months previous.
Fulham kick off their Championship campaign this weekend with a trip to Barnsley, which at the time of writing, was currently goalless.
I think the entire Championship will be glad when this one comes to an end in all honesty.
It’s been going on and on for some time now and frankly, it just needs sorting out, as we all know Sessegnon is going to end up leaving at some point anyway.
Fulham’s best hope here is to get him back on loan, and get a hefty chunk of change in the coffers. That would be a win-win for the club despite having to sell one of their key assets.
