Liverpool grabbing the chance to sign this rising English teenager in the summer would be a massive coup for Klopp

Liverpool opinion – Klopp should sign Ryan Sessegnon in the summer

According to a report in the Mirror, Fulham are resigned to lose their prized asset Ryan Sessegnon after they got relegated from the Premier League on Tuesday.

As per the report, all of their players have a relegation-related wage reduction clause of up to 50% in their contract, hence, the club do not have to sell the player due to wage concerns (h/t Mirror).

Instead, it will be a win-win situation for them if the player wants to stay in a cut-price wage and fight for promotion next season.

However, in Sessegnon’s case, Fulham have an idea that the youngster wants to play Premier League football and he has been linked with various top clubs in the past two transfer windows (h/t Mirror).

Among those big-hitters, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham are the ones keeping close track on the player (h/t Football London). The Cottagers did put a £50million price tag when the approach was made last summer.

Here’s why Liverpool should beat their rivals and sign the player in the summer window:

Sessegnon’s versatility would be great for the Reds

Ryan Sessegnon is a versatile player, who can play at left-back, left midfield or as a left-winger. Hence, his quality and flexibility could be a great boon for Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Moreover, with Liverpool expected to lose Alberto Moreno (h/t Metro), they require a backup left-back for Andy Robertson. Since Sessegnon can also play on the left wing, it means he could help manage Sadio Mane’s workload in the team as well.

Amidst all that, as mentioned above, staying at Fulham would mean the 18-year-old would be earning a cut-price wage due to relegation. Hence, Liverpool can easily offer a contract that consists of a wage that is better than that of Fulham’s.
