‘Spurs will eventually sign him’ – Another Fulham, Tottenham transfer saga emerges: The verdict

Published

Fulham are fielding more transfer interest from Tottenham, with the Premier League giants in pursuit of full-back, Steven Sessegnon.  

Spurs swooped to sign Sessegnon’s twin brother, Ryan, over the course of the summer and have now set their sights on Steven, with an under-value £3m already rejected by the Craven Cottage outfit.

The Sun report that offer as ‘derisory’ but claim Spurs will be back in soon.

So, with that in mind, how much should Fulham be looking to recoup?

We discuss…

George Brooks  

“This is an interesting one. Steven Sessegnon is a very talented footballer and he’s got a lot of potential. He’s still only 19 and he will only get better with more experience.

“When you consider how much money Spurs paid Fulham for his brother Ryan Sessegnon during the summer transfer window, I don’t think Steven is worth as much because he hasn’t got as much experience. Then again, you could say he’s worth slightly more than his brother because he’s got longer on his contract.

“Fulham are under no pressure to sell him, so Spurs may have to pay around £30million if they really want him.

“Steven Sessegnon has been a key player for Fulham so far this season and Scott Parker has really been able to get the best out of him.

“I think it would be a major blow for Fulham if they were to lose him, because the other players in his position are nowhere near as good and they’d find if very difficult to replace him.”

Jacob Potter  

“They’ve got to be demanding a fee in the region of £10m for him.

“Sessegnon isn’t as proven as his brother is in the Championship, so there isn’t a chance that Fulham will be able to demand anywhere near what they did for him in the summer transfer window.

“He’s shown promising signs in the games that he has featured in already this season, but that’s still not enough to convince me that he’s worth more £10m.

“The defender is already an England youth international, which will mean that he’s worth more than your average youngster coming through.

“I think Spurs will eventually sign him, but Fulham won’t be letting Sessegnon leave the club on the cheap anytime soon.”

Alfie Burns

“Fulham would be lucky to get the £20m+ they got for Ryan, given how impressive he was in the Championship in 2017/18.

“However, the offer of £3m is way below what Steven is worth, with the full-back having plenty of potential and an important role to play under Scott Parker.

“The 19-year-old has made four appearances in the league already this season and given his growing importance at Fulham, they’re going to be looking for a lot more than £3m.

“In my eyes, it’s going to take somewhere around the £10m mark for Spurs to get him.”
