Tottenham Hotspur’s move for Fulham left-back Ryan Sessegnon has reportedly stalled.
It had been reported by Sky Sports that a £25 million fee, potentially rising to £30 million, had been agreed between the two London clubs, with Josh Onomah set to move the other way.
However, that move may not be as close as it seemed.
According to The Mirror journalist Darren Lewis, talks between Spurs and the Championship club have now hit an impasse.
Spurs have been linked with the 19-year-old throughout the summer and appear keen to get the deal wrapped up before the transfer window closes.
Sessegnon impressed in his debut season in the Premier League in 2018/19, scoring twice and providing six assists for a Fulham team who slumped disappointingly to relegation.
A product of the Craven Cottage academy, the teenager’s record for the senior side is extremely impressive–having scored 25 goals and provided 18 assists already.
Spurs have already added one teenager from the Championship this season, with Jack Clarke joining from Leeds United.
This seemed like a deal that was pretty much over the line but it appears to have stalled.
I still think this is a move that will get done before the window closes but it doesn’t seem to be as set in stone as it once was.
It would be a huge boost for Fulham if they can keep the teenager at the club this summer, especially given the shrewd signings they have already made, but I think there is still a lot left in this one.
