Report: Left-sided flyer greatly admired by Tottenham is Poch most likely summer signing
Tottenham remain great admirers of Fulham’s left winger Ryan Sessegnon, and he is like to be brought in to replace Danny Rose in the summer, according to a report.
The Evening Standard rounded up its football experts for a look ahead after the January window had closed.
And Tom Collomosse, their Tottenham expert, said that it would be no surprise if Fernando Llorente and Danny Rose were to leave the club in the summer.
He went on to say that Ryan Sessegnon, a player Tottenham have been linked to before, would be a natural replacement for Rose.
“Fulham’s attacking full-back Ryan Sessegnon is greatly admired at Spurs and looks a probable replacement for Rose,” said Collomosse, “as long as Spurs are not blown out of the water by clubs with bigger budgets.
He also went on to say that Spurs are looking for a replacement for Moussa Dembele, who at 31 is nearing the end of his career.
Collomosse said that Norwich’s James Maddison would be one to watch in that area.
He said that Brazilian Malcom was also on the club’s radar.
Football Insider verdict:
It can only be a matter of time before Ryan Sessegnon makes the move up to the Premier League. The 17-year-old is wowing fans in the Championship, scoring 11 goals from just 29 league appearances this season. He seems like a natural Pochettino player and the club is said to admire him greatly. He’d also be a natural replacement if the club was to lose Danny Rose in the summer, something even the most ardent Tottenham fan would admit is fairly likely to happen. Sessegnon the next most likely Spurs signing? We can go along with that.
