Danny Mills has insisted that Tottenham signing Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon for £25million would be “decent business” as he claims a potential cut-price deal could be on the cards.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former England ace insisted that the north London outfit would be able to sell the teenage talent for profit in a couple of seasons, suggesting that they could even double their money.
As Football Insider revealed, Tottenham have been engaged in talks with Fulham over a move for both the 19-year-old winger and his twin brother Steven, with Ryan said to be keen on moving from Craven Cottage to the north Londoners.
Discussing what would be a fair price tag for the youngster, Mills said that anything from £20million to £25million would represent a good deal for Spurs, with the former Leeds man hinting at the possibility of a cut-price move after the Cottagers’ relegation.
“I understand why Tottenham are looking at him as a player,” Mills told Football Insider.
“They might be thinking: ‘Okay, we can get him out of Fulham because maybe relegation makes him cheaper.’
“It’s all down to negotiations, it’s like buying a house – if you want it and you’re desperate for it, sometimes you have to pay a little bit more. If you’re desperate to sell, sometimes you have to let it go for a little bit cheaper.
“Tottenham buying for £20-25million, they sell him for 30, 40, 50 two or three seasons down the line. From Tottenham’s perspective, it looks like it would be decent business.”
Sessegnon scored twice in his first Premier League season, with 35 top flight appearances to his name.
He has a total of 120 outings under his belt for Fulham’s first team, netting 25 times and notching up another 18 assists.
