Barcelona ‘have enquired’ about taking Tottenham’s Sessegnon on loan/Mourinho looking to hand youngster more opportunities

An update regarding Ryan Sessegnon’s short-term future has been forthcoming online on Saturday.

Sessegnon’s struggles for minutes

Ryan Sessegnon made the move to Tottenham from Fulham last summer.

Spurs are understood to have paid £25m for the versatile youngster’s services.

However, despite the fairly hefty fee which the Lilywhites forked out, Sessegnon has since barely featured for the club.

In fact, the full-back garnered just 12 appearances during his debut campaign in north London, only nine of which came as a starter.

Such limited minutes led to speculation last month that the England under-21 international could be sent out on loan for the forthcoming campaign, with a number of potential suitors reported to have expressed an interest.

Both Sessegnon’s former club Fulham and Dutch powerhouse Ajax have been tipped as potential landing spots for the Englishman.

Barca enquired about Sessegnon

However, if the latest update courtesy of the reliable Athletic is to be believed, then there is a good chance, despite his struggles in 2019/20, that Sessegnon will be staying put next season.

As per the Athletic, Barcelona enquired about a possible loan move for the Spurs man.

Ajax, AC Milan, Bayer Leverkusen, Brighton & Hove Albion, Newcastle United and Celtic are also named as sides believed to have expressed an interest in Sessegnon.

Jose Mourinho, though, is said to have rejected Barca’s proposal, with the plan, as things stand, for Sessegnon to spend the 2020/21 campaign at Tottenham.
