Tottenham Hotspur Identify This English Starlet As Rose’s Replacement: Good Move For Spurs?

According to a recent report by the Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur are committed to securing the services of Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon. They have identified him as a long-term replacement for Danny Rose. The same source has also mentioned that the Cottagers prospect welcomes a move to North London with just a year left to run in his contract at Craven Cottage.

The Rapid Rise Of Sessegnon In English Football

The teenage sensation came through the youth ranks of Fulham before he finally broke into their first-team back in 2016. The English whizkid had to endure a difficult season with the Cottagers after he failed to save his team from being relegated to the EFL Championship. Sessegnon made 38 appearances for the London outfit last season, scoring twice while providing six assists across all competitions.

The 19-year-old winger is a penetrative dribbler which makes him a potent threat on the counter. There is no doubt that he would add another dimension to Mauricio Pochettino’s attack at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Furthermore, Sessegnon is versatile enough to assume the duties of a left-sided attacking winger or fill in as a left-back if required.

What Will The England Under-21 Prospect Add To Pochettino’s Side?

Sessegnon boasts blistering pace, which allows him to make lung-bursting dribbles on the wide areas. When the English wonderkid is playing with confidence on the field, he has the potential to be a match-winner on his own. However, the Championship starlet needs to more consistent with his performances if he intends to succeed at the highest level.

Recruiting Sessegnon: Decent Move For Pochettino?

Sessegnon has the makings of a talented winger and could make a positive impact at North London if Mauricio Pochettino is willing to give him some first-team opportunities. It might be detrimental to Sessegnon’s long-term growth as a wide player if he has to spend most of his time on the Spurs bench next season.

At 19, the English talent will only get better with each season so Pochettino’s side could benefit from his acquisition before the start of the new campaign. It could prove to be an excellent coup for them in the long-run as Spurs try to establish themselves at the top of English football in the coming years.
