Tottenham line up pre-January double deal for Championship sensations - report
By London correspondent Tony Hughes
Tottenham are lining up a double deal for Fulham brothers Ryan and Steven Sessegnon, according to a report.
Sports website HITC claim that Spurs are keen to snap up the teenage duo, who are making huge strides in the set-up of the Championship club.
Left-back Ryan, 16, has been strongly linked with a number of elite Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City.
The report says Tottenham have also been hugely impressed by his twin brother Steven, who is a defender and is similarly making smooth progress.
It is said that Spurs are hoping to agree terms with Fulham before January but would be willing to leave the duo at the club until the end of the season.

Football Insider revealed in August month that Spurs were willing to offer three players in a swap deal for the youngster dubbed the “new Gareth Bale”.
Ryan is an attacking left-back who is a prolific goal creator and scorer. The England Under-17 international, who only turned 16 in May, has scored two goals and supplied one assist from left-back in eight matches for the club this season.
At 16 years and 94 days he also became the Championship’s youngest scorer last month 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.
The pair are two of the most highly-rated young players at 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 on Tuesday.
