Tottenham Hotspur have given up hope of landing Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham before the transfer window closes in two weeks’ time, according to Football London.
Spurs have been linked with the young starlet for some time, with the teenager playing a key role in the Craven Cottage outfit’s promotion to the Premier League last season.
After starting out his career as a left-back, Sessegnon has further impressed Tottenham since moving into a more-advanced role and starring as a winger for Fulham.
His reputation progressed further after winning the Championship Player of the Year award in 2017-18 and Spurs are continually linked with him in the British press.
However, the latest report suggests that any hopes Tottenham had of landing Sessegnon this summer are over as the player wants to play in the Premier League with Fulham.
The fee to land such a mercurial talent would surely be astronomical and the Cottagers star has been linked with some of the biggest clubs in English and European football.
In reality, to sign someone like Sessegnon, Tottenham would have had to have gone all out for him early in the summer – which is simply just not Daniel Levy’s style.
Spurs fans would surely love to see the Fulham man at White Hart Lane but it is wishful thinking to believe anything could happen in this regard before the transfer window closes next month.
