Tottenham are working on deals to sign Ryan Sessegnon and Wilfried Zaha this summer, according to a reliable journalist.
Spurs correspondent Marc Benamram, who is a reliable source of news about the club, reported on his personal Twitter account on Friday afternoon that the north Londoners are in hot pursuit of Crystal Palace attacker Zaha and Fulham left winger Sessegnon.
Benamram claims that Tottenham are also looking to secure a “marquee signing” ahead of their move to the new White Hart Lane in August.

Football Insider verdict:
Were Spurs to succeed in their pursuits of dazzling forward duo Zaha and Sessegnon, plenty of fans would be more than chuffed. Were a marquee signing also to be unveiled ahead of the start of next season, the White Hart Lane faithful would be dancing in the streets all night long. Tottenham fans are now braced for some big-name departures this summer, with Toby Alderweireld expected to be followed through the exit door by Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele. Waving goodbye to such distinguished performers will be a bitter pill to swallow, but if the silver lining is three top-quality additions that would make life easier. Spurs are certainly in need of a ball-carrier who can convert defence into attack in the blink of an eye, which makes the pursuit of Zaha and Sessegnon understandable. Both are goal creators and scorers, who can add something different to an occasionally one dimensional front line.
