Ryan Sessegnon, the young left-back, currently playing for the Championship club Fulham, has been in the headlines for quite some time now for all the right reasons. The wonder kid, who turned 17 this month, has attracted the interests of some of the biggest clubs in the Premier League with his dazzling display of footwork down the left-hand side for his current club and is considered to be the next big thing in English football.
The versatile youngster is known for his darting runs down the pitch into the attacking third, with his mesmerising dribbling skills bamboozling the opposition defence. He can also play as a left winger and has great pace and prowess to become one of the best left-footed players for his country in the near future.
He is a regular in the under 19 team of England and is looking to make a mark in the Premier League by moving to any of the big name clubs, including the likes of Manchester United, Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool.
The teenager, however, is still in contention for a contract renewal to stay back at Craven Cottage, as speculations are rife that he might leave Fulham, who were knocked out of the Playoffs by eventual runners-up’s Reading, at the end of his current contract with them.
All the aforementioned clubs are in dire need of a good left back and Ryan Sessegnon might completely fit their bill as a great option for the position. While Manchester United are having problems with their regular left-back Luke Shaw as he has been prone to injuries for a large amount of time in the recently concluded season and is still in doubt to start the new season for his club, the Spurs might have to let go off their left back Danny Rose to Manchester City, given their grave interest to bag the English defender.
However, Tottenham have already found a good substitute to replace Rose in Ben Davies, who has been playing regularly for the team for the last couple of months. Manchester United have, though, not found any such alternative for Shaw and have to make do with either Darmian or Blind to play as a makeshift.
So it can be said that Ryan Sessegnon might be entitled to more first team exposure if he agrees to a deal with the Red Devils rather than making a move to White Hart Lane, where he might have to play the second fiddle to Davies.
