Manchester United have been put on alert with Fulham winger Ryan Sessegnon being tipped to leave the London club at the end of the season. The 17-year-old, who has lit up the Championship with 12 goals in 32 games, has been linked with United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
Former Fulham striker-turned pundit Leroy Rosenior believes a deal has already been agreed for Sessegnon, who will ply his trade elsewhere ahead of the 2018/19 season. Spurs are favourites but Rosenior hints at a bidding war ensuing.
“I think that a deal has been done for Ryan as teams have been in for him,” he said on James Richardson’s Totally Football Show. “It’s a Premier League side with strong rumours of Tottenham. I wouldn’t be surprised if other sides have been in for him as well.
“He’s stays at Fulham before moving in the summer. His future is already mapped out. Ryan has great potential. He is one of those players who you think he’s not a left-back and not a left-winger. He could be an amazing player.”
Sessegnon has been a regular for Fulham this season, having risen through the ranks of the youth side. The 17-year-old has also represented the England national team at u19 level, making 14 appearances, scoring four goals. He looks to have a bright future and could be in the Premier League in the coming months.
Manchester United are in the market for a left-back, a position the Fulham wonderkid can operate in, but he won’t come cheap given the interest from other Premier League sides. Sessegnon is proficient in the final third and combative defensively.
He creates chances and drives from deep and could be perfect for the Red Devils. The teenager’s future could be resolve in the coming months.
