Ryan Sessegnon & Wilf Zaha: ‘Tottenham can’t wait until the World Cup’

Tottenham, Ryan Sessegnon & Wilf Zaha

On Tuesday in the Times, Tottenham’s summer recruitment plans are chewed over.

Can Spurs win a trophy this season?

This weekend Mauricio Pochettino’s men face an enormous match, as they take on Man United in the FA Cup semifinal.

Tottenham, who have been superb in recent seasons, would dearly love to win a piece of silverware months before they move into their new stadium this summer.

At the same time, Spurs are already preparing their summer recruitment plans. And the two players linked to Tottenham today are Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon and Crystal Palace’s Wilf Zaha.

Fulham & Crystal Palace

Both Fulham Sessegnon and Palace’s Zaha have long been linked with possible Spurs transfers.

Could the line up down Tottenham’s left-hand side next term? The Times report that Spurs want to make significant transfers before this summer’s World Cup in Russia:

The manager wants most of the club’s business concluded before the tournament begins in Russia on June 14 and it is understood that he has shown interest in Ryan Sessegnon, Fulham’s quick left-sided player, and Wilfried Zaha, the Crystal Palace winger.

Tottenham may also revive their interest in Malcom, the Bordeaux winger.

How much would Tottenham have to pay Fulham and Palace to complete deals for their best players?

The Times fails to list any price tags for Ryan Sessegnon or Wilf Zaha. Yet it would seem reasonable that the players could command a combined fee of close to 100 million pounds.

Brighton vs Tottenham

Will Brighton win another game until the end of the season?

The Seagulls were beaten 3-2 at Crystal Palace last weekend in a result which has heightened fears that Chris Hughton’s men may go down.

After Spurs, Brighton face Burnley (a), Man United (h), Man City (a) and Liverpool (a).

As for Tottenham, Mauricio Pochettino’s side were beaten by Man City at Wembley last weekend.
