Guardian reports identifies two most likely Tottenham January signings, one is a Championship ace
By Harry Sykes
Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha and Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon are the most likely players to join Tottenham in the January window, according to a report.
The Guardian claims wide forward Zaha and rampaging left-back Sessegnon could make moves across the capital to White Hart Lane next month.
It is said that Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is a “massive fan” of the Palace winger on the back of his electrifying displays for the south London outfit.
Sessegnon is also reportedly on Spurs’ radar as a result of his precocious performances for Championship club Fulham.
The left-back, who can also play on the left wing, is still only 16 but has already made 11 appearances for the second tier outfit this season, spread across 778 minutes of action.

Sessegnon has also scored two goals and supplied two assists from league matches, and in August became the youngest scorer in Championship history.
The Guardian report that Pochettino is aware of the complexities of signing players in the notoriously difficult winter window but is open to “upgrades” if they become available.
Spurs’ young team are surfing the crest of a wave following three consecutive league wins, which have consolidated their fifth position in the Premier League.
