At the beginning of this summer, it looked for all the world that we were bringing Fulham’s wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon to Anfield.
But because the teenager has just turned 17, he didn’t want to leave London and Jurgen Klopp turned his attention to the slightly more experienced, if less hyped Andrew Robertson, instead.
Sessegnon’s talent is enormous though, which earned him selection into the Championship Team of the Year last term – named the best left-back in the notoriously tricky and physical division.
According to the Telegraph, Tottenham have lodged a massive £25m bid for Sessegnon’s services.
The left-back can also play left-wing, with many expecting him to follow Gareth Bale’s example and eventually move to a more attacking role.
We’d be quite jealous if Spurs did confirm the transfer in short, although the fee is enormous for someone born this century.
With Danny Rose making noises of discontent however, Sessegnon appears a mighty sensible long-term option – and the kind of young English player who’d thrive under Maurcio Pochettino.
