Tottenham & Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon
Spurs haven’t signed any new players in the last two transfer windows.
However that self-imposed transfer embargo could soon end with a deal for Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.
Rumours linking Sessegnon with Spurs have been doing the rounds for months, if not years.
On Tuesday, several sources all converge on the same conclusion: Sessegnon’s move to Tottenham is inching closer.
Here’s what the Times say
The Times tell their readers the following:
Tottenham Hotspur are increasingly confident of signing Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham having tracked the 18-year-old winger for the past two years.
Sessegnon only has a year to run on his Fulham contract.
Accordingly, if the Cottagers aim to receive top dollar of their English upstart, they could be forced into a summer sale.
The Times delve into Sessegnon’s possible price tag.
While the broadsheet note that Fulham had previously been seeking 50 million pounds for their winger, that price is now dropping rapidly:
The west London club have now been relegated from the Premier League, however, and Sessegnon has one year left on his contract, so he may now cost less than half that figure.
More claims that Sessegnon is moving to Spurs
Richard Crawley, a reporter for the South London Press, has taken to social media to reveal his update on Ryan Sessegnon and Spurs.
Citing a “good source”, it’s claimed that the Sessegnon transfer is “pretty close to done.”
For the record, Sessegnon only scored two goals and chipped in with six assists this season.

What about Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale?
The Sun go down a different route on Tuesday regarding Tottenham’s possible summer transfers.
The tabloid suggest that Spurs could re-sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid. Readers are told:
Gareth Bale has been offered a Tottenham return — in a £10million loan.
Spurs’ transfer committee are discussing the possibility of a loan but have ruled out a permanent deal for their former superstar.
