Is there another club whose targets are so publicised and known by the fanbase?
Maybe it’s the same for all supporters and we just feel it more as we hear the rumours and speculation on a day to day basis.
With that being said, it seems our pursuit of Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon this summer will be tricky, with his club ruling out a sale via the Mirror.
Coach Slavisa Jokanovic said: “Sessegnon will not be in the transfer market in the summer.”
While this obviously isn’t sacrosanct, it does suggest that we’ll face an uphill climb to secure the left-back we’ve made our no.1 target to backup James Milner in 2017/18.
Melissa Reddy in Goal says the 16-year-old is the ‘primary target’ for the left-back spot, with Alberto Moreno likely to depart.
The fact we’re willing to draft a teenager so young into first-team squad recognition says a lot about how highly we rate him, which isn’t surprising considering he’s notched six goals in the Championship this term.
