Tottenham Hotspur Faces Competition For £40m Premier League Winger: What Should Be Pochettino Play?

According to a recent report by the Daily Express, Tottenham Hotspur are set to face stiff competition from Juventus in pursuit of Fulham winger Ryan Sessegnon during the summer transfer period. The same source has also revealed that the Cottagers are looking to recoup around £40m for their prized asset in this off-season following their relegation from the Premier League three weeks ago.

The Recent Rise Of Ryan Sessegnon

Sessegnon made a name for himself last season when he helped the West London club earn a promotion back to the English top-flight. However, he has not hit the heights of last season so far in this campaign. To make matters even worse, he is currently not even a guaranteed starter in Scott Parker’s starting XI.

There is no doubt that Sessegnon has massive potential and could be a future star in European football. The London born starlet has made 35 appearances for the Cottagers this term, scoring two goals while creating six assists in all competitions.

At the mere age of 18, the English speedster has managed to establish himself as a vital member of the England Under-21 team. With a bit of luck, he could even be promoted to Gareth Southgate’s senior side soon but only if he can gradually improve his game in the coming months.

What Will The English Winger Bring To White Hart Lane?

Sessegnon boasts electric pace and is a very penetrative dribbler with the ball down the wide areas. He is versatile enough to play in any position down the left wing. Furthermore, the English whizkid can contribute with some goals and assists in the opposition half. The young wing wizard’s productivity is getting better with age.

Sessegnon’s potential acquisition will undoubtedly improve Mauricio Pochettino’s midfield options at the North London club. Spurs can use a natural winger like Sessegnon in their squad heading into the new season, as the former Sunderland star fits the bill perfectly.

What Should Be Pochettino’s Play?

The English wide man could turn out to be a fantastic acquisition for Spurs if Pochettino is willing to give him a chance in the first-team. The Argentine boss should do everything he can to lure the Fulham youngster to North London this summer.
