‘Ryan Sessegnon picks Tottenham’
The morning after the Juventus defeat, the Mirror have tried to raise Tottenham fans’s spirit with a bit of transfer news.
In a headline seemingly aimed at given Spurs a boost, readers are told:
Fulham wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon picks Tottenham move over Manchester United, City and Liverpool.
But has he? In theory, perhaps.
The Mirrors article if couched in assumptions, as the when it gets to the details it’s revealed “Ryan Sessegnon would favour a move to Tottenham if he leaves Fulham in the summer.”
If, of course, is a big word.
Ryan Sessegnon’s Fulham stats
Is there a more sought-after teenager in England than Ryan Sessegnon?
The 17-year-old has been in outstanding form for Fulham this season in the Championship.
Sessegnon, who can operate in any position down the left-flank, has scored an amazing 14 goals this season.
Moreover, he’s one of the first names on the Fulham team sheet, having played almost 70 games for the Cottagers already.
Sessegnon was back in action this midweek as Fulham beat Sheffield United 3-0 at Craven Cottage. The win left Fulham fourth in the table as they remain focused on winning promotion to the Premier League.
Bournemouth vs Tottenham
If Tottenham hope to be in the Champions League again next season, they need to return to winning ways.
Following Juventus, Spurs travel to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Sunday. Spurs are fourth in the league, while Chelsea are five points adrift.
Bournemouth are without a win in their last three matches (2 draws, 1 defeat).
