Tottenham signing this teenage English star is an absolute no-brainer and would suit all parties – opinion

Tottenham Hotspur opinion: Spurs should sign Ryan Sessegnon

It has been reported by the Guardian that Ryan Sessegnon will not be signing a new contract and that Tottenham Hotspur are the club for the young Englishman.

Mauricio Pochetinno has built a reputation for nurturing young talent and Sessegnon will benefit greatly from working under his tutelage.

Other England internationals like Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Harry Winks and Eric Dier are a testament to that. Expectations were massive when Fulham joined the Premier League and Sessegnon was a big part of that.

The fact that he was awarded the Championship player of the year in the 2017/18 season meant that even more was expected of him than most other youngsters.

Tottenham don’t have too many natural wingers and they only have the likes Son Heung-Min and Lucas Moura, and depend on their full-backs and wing-backs to provide the width by hitting the byline.

Sessegnon will be an able deputy for the players mentioned above and can also do the same job for the likes of Danny Rose and Ben Davies.

Spurs will be feeling a bit of frustration and pride looking back on their Champions League campaign. Having had a memorable journey with their new stadium will give them a lot of belief heading into the new season.

Spurs can’t compete with the likes of the Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea for finances. They need to look into the market for young talent or bargains.

Sessegnon isn’t a very risky signing as he wouldn’t be expected to hit the ground running because of his age and the fact that he’ll have to fight for his place with the senior players.

For Fulham, this is an opportunity to cash in on one of their own players and reinforce other areas. Fulham desperately need defensive reinforcements and could use the money that they’d avail from Sessegnon’s transfer.

Ryan Sessegnon


It hasn’t helped that he’s played under three very different managers in one season. It gets overlooked that he’s still very young and is still one of the few, at his age, playing Premier League football regularly.

He doesn’t have to worry about that with Mauricio Pochettino at the helm and this is a move that will suit all parties.
