Tottenham will send scouts to watch Fulham ace Ryan Sessegnon in action for England Under-19s, according to a report.
The Sun claim Spurs will be one of a number of Premier League clubs running the rule over the 16-year-old left-sided flyer when he plays for national side against Wales, Luxembourg and Greece.
This comes after HITC reported that Tottenham are hoping to agree terms with Fulham over a deal to sign Sessegnon in the January transfer window.
The attacking left-back has been strongly linked with a number of other elite Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City.
Tottenham are said to be taking a particularly keen interest in Sessegnon, as manager Mauricio Pochettino looks to reinforce his squad in the winter window.
Football Insider revealed in August that Spurs were willing to offer three players in a swap deal for the youngster dubbed the “new Gareth Bale”.
Sessegnon is an attacking left-back who is a prolific goal creator and scorer. The England Under-19 international, who only turned 16 in May, has scored two goals and supplied one assist from left-back in nine matches for the club this season.
At 16 years and 94 days he also became the Championship’s youngest scorer in August just four days after he made his league debut in a 1-1 draw at Leeds.
Football Insider revealed in February that Arsenal had made an offer for the England Under-16 captain.
Sessegnon is the most highly-rated young player to emerge from the prolific Fulham academy, which has produced a number of outstanding young talents in recent years, including Mousa Dembele and Patrick Roberts.
In other Tottenham transfer news, a report has detailed an update of Spurs’ pursuit of a Brazilian wonderkid after talks opened.
