Spurs risk loosing Fulham teen target to Inter Milan

Champions League finalists, Tottenham Hotspurs have been joined by Inter Milan in the race to sign Fulham prototype wonder-kid Ryan Sessegnon.

The 19-years-old Fulham star has been on Spurs’ target for over a year now, but Inter Milan is said to be attempting to snatch him away from the Champions League finalists.

Although Sessegnon didn’t set the Premier League alight as he did in the Championship the season before, the full-back registered 15 goals and 6 assists, while being just 17-years-old for most of the season during the London club’s promotion run.

And in-as-much-as he failed to achieve similar numbers in England’s top flight league, he still managed to contribute to 8 goals in the past season, finding the back of the net twice and setting up a further six.

These numbers are not just respectable for someone who was playing in their first full season in the top division of English football, but his team only bagged 34 goals all season meaning the left-back made a direct contribution to almost a quarter of all goals netted by Fulham in their attempt to avoid relegation.

Achieving such decent stats while playing for a team that finished up on just 26 points is a demonstration of his talent which is what Spurs have taken notice of the England U-21 international’s potential, and it has been reported, they are even open to selling Danny Rose to bring the youngster in.
