Tottenham’s Ryan Sessegnon deal ‘agreed’
News has filtered out of France that Tottenham will sign Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon in the summer.
Indeed, it’s being claimed that Spurs have already “agreed” the deal with Fulham.
The news was relayed in the context of an update on PSG.
PSG insiders Paris United announced on Sunday night that the Parisians have been rebuffed in their attempts to sign Sessegnon.
Sessegnon told PSG he’d prefer to stay in London, while his move to Tottenham should be wrapped up in the off-season.
As to the terms of the Sessegnon-Spurs deal, it’s possible that Tottenham leave the 17-year-old at Craven Cottage next season on loan as part of the package.
Birmingham 3 – Fulham 1
Will Fulham be playing Premier League football next season?
If that’s to happen, Fulham will need to win the Championship playoff.
The Cottagers saw a 23-match unbeaten run end on the final day of the Championship season on Sunday.
In something of a shock, Fulham were beaten 3-1 at Birmingham City, who needed to win to stay in the division.
Goals from Lukas Jutkiewicz and skipper Harlee Dean put Birmingham in control on Sunday. Tom Cairney put Fulham on the board, before a late third from Che Adams.
Chelsea target PSG’s Layvin Kurzawa
Paris United also report that Chelsea are looking to sign PSG left-back Layvin Kurzawa in the summer.
Links to Kurzawa are a little surprising considering the Blues signed Emerson Palmieri from Roma in January. Marcos Alonso remains the first choice left-back.
Other defenders also linked with possible Stamford Bridge moves are Juve’s Alex Sandro and Napoli’s Faouzi Ghoulam.
