Man Utd are reportedly closing in on signing Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon in the upcoming winter window.
The 17-year-old has enjoyed a meteoric rise in his football career since he marked his name in the Fulham first-team last season. He is widely considered as one of the best youngsters in English football.
The starlet, despite his wing-back position, has netted 11 goals in his 53 appearances for his side.

Furthermore, he became the youngest player ever to score in a Championship match last year, and is the first 17-year-old to score a hat-trick in league football since Dele Alli.
Accordingly, in view of the talent he possesses, numerous Premier League clubs are monitoring his situation.
Nevertheless, the Red Devils and Tottenham are keen on securing his services, with the Old Trafford outfit having a bit of an edge over the London club.
The Sun reports that the Cottagers have given the green signal to the England under-19 starlet to leave Craven Cottage in January, as they are looking for a replacement for the remaining part of this year’s campaign.
Jose Mourinho is desperately craving for a left-back, and had registered his interest in Danny Rose recently.
However, the availability of Sessegnon supposedly tempts the gaffer more than the £50m-rated Spurs defender.
Regardless, the Fulham full-back’s current contract, which he agreed in June, holds no buyout clause, and expires in the summer of 2020.
