Man Utd seem to have joined many Premier League clubs in the race for the signature of Fulham wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon.
The Red Devils are set to be one of the busiest clubs in the upcoming transfer window, and are looking to add some of the best players to the club before the start of next season. Club manager Jose Mourinho is looking to improve on more than one position in the squad, and the latest name linked with a move to the club is Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.
The exciting full-back, who turned 17 just a couple of weeks ago, is easily the best teenagers on show in England, as he has been the first choice left-back for Fulham this season in the Championship.
The youngster has shown great maturity for his age, and it is believed that he could be ready for the next challenge, which he will be up against if he moves to the top flight.
Sessegnon was not eligible to sign a deal before his 17th birthday, but now, he can sign a maximum of a three-year deal with the top clubs in the country, and there is no shortage of teams fighting for his signature.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool wanted to solve their left-back problems for years to come with Sessegnon, but reports suggest that Tottenham Hotspur are already in advanced stages of negotiations for the player. However, Jose Mourinho, who also has a problem at the left-back spot, has now joined this race as well.
According to the Telegraph, the 17-year old, who could be available for just £2m, is a top priority transfer target for Mourinho, and that he is ready to do what it takes to land him. It will be interesting to see if the interest from Mourinho finally lures Sessegnon away from London.
