Highly Rated Tottenham Hotspur Target Signs New Contract With Fulham: Big Blow For Pochettino’s Plans?

One of English football’s hottest young property Ryan Sessegnon has signed a new contract with Fulham. Ever since he burst onto the scene, the defender turned winger has been linked with a move away from Craven Cottage. His earlier contract was itself up until 2020 and the new contract would see him devote the next three years of his career at the London based outfit.

The left winger was influential for his side as they went on to secure their promotion to the Premier League. Sessegnon has been extensively linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur in the recent past. However, this will now come as a major blow for Mauricio Pochettino as he was keen on bringing the 18-year-old talent to White Hart Lane.

Sessegnon is the first player who got nominated for PFA young player of the season even though he played in the second division. He eventually lost out on the award as it was taken away by Manchester City‘s Leroy Sane. However, such nomination goes on to show how good the Englishman has become.

Tottenham Hotspur, who have established themselves as a powerhouse in English and European football, will be looking to mount a bigger and better challenge on all fronts next season and signing Sessegnon would have gone a long way to help that.

The youngster is the product of Fulham’s academy and the last one was a breakthrough season for him as he managed 16 goals and 8 assists. He was the most influential player for his side and the 18-year-old is destined for great things. 

Sessegnon started out as a left back but Slavisa Jokanovic soon realized his attacking potential and started deploying him further up the pitch. The move paid dividends as the youngster started influencing play and creating and scoring goals for his side. He is adept in going past his players and has an eye for a goal. The major difference between him and other youngsters with promise is that he has the ability to pick the right pass at the right moment and its testament can be seen from the goal which the Cottagers scored in the playoff finals which resulted in their victory against Aston Villa.

Spurs don’t have an outright winger in their side apart from Lucas Moura. Most of Spurs’ outlet from the flanks come from their fullbacks and having a winger cum fullback like Sessegnon would have certainly boosted Pochettino’s side. But now with a new contract in place for the youngster, it looks highly unlikely that they can now lure him at the White Hart Lane and will definitely need to look for viable alternatives.
