Championship club value Man United & Tottenham target at £50m

Fulham value Manchester United and Tottenham transfer target Ryan Sessegnon at £50m.

Fulham hope for a bidding war as the player does not have a buy-out clause in his contract.

The 17-year-old recently signed his first professional with the club over the summer.

Sensational Sessegnon

The 17-year-old left-back is considered to be one of the talents brightest prospects.

The player, who can also play as a left-winger, has netting 11 times in 50 appearances for his club side.

The England under-19 star showed his goal-scoring prowess on Tuesday evening, scoring a hat-trick in Fulham’s 5-4 win at Sheffield United.

This feat makes him the youngest player to have hit a treble in England’s top four tiers, becoming the first 17-year-old to do so since Dele Alli.

His incredible talent has lead to the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham all scouting him on occasions.

Three-year contract

His new contract, which he signed last summer, is not expected to faze clubs interested in obtaining his signature.

Reports claim that the Cottagers are demanding at least £30m for his signature.

Fulham believe, however, that with no buy-out clause in his contract a bidding war could be sparked.

Over the summer, the player revealed that he turned down offers from numerous Premier League clubs in favour of regular first-team football in West London.

Rose replacement

Tottenham are the club most interested in signing the Fulham academy prodigy.

Spurs attempted to sign him over the summer but were unsuccessful, as they failed to guarantee him regular first-team football.

Next summer could be a very different situation, however, with Danny Rose looking destined for the exit door at the club.

Tottenham, in particular, Mauricio Pochettino, pride themselves on nurturing young talents, shown by the development of Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Danny Rose and Kyle Walker.

The Arginine head coach has turned them all from exciting young talents into four players who have lit up the Champions League this season.

This may well be a key factor in Sessegnon’s decision, which is excepted to make at the end of the current season.
