According to the media, Liverpool are in pole position to secure the signature of Fulham’s teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon. The teenager is enjoying a remarkable breakthrough season with the Cottagers, which has seen him jump to the top of the wish list of some of Europe’s top sides.
At the age of 16, Sessegnon has already played 26 games this season, providing at least 6 assists in the process.
Jurgen Klopp believes Sessegnon is the long term solution to Liverpool’s left full back problems.
Liverpool have had to use James Milner in the left back position all through this season, and his deputy Alberto Moreno has been used sparingly because he is prone to high profile mistakes. The latter is certainly on his way out, as reports claim that Liverpool are already entertaining enquiries for his signature.
It is believed that Klopp would do anything to get Sessegnon to Anfield, and even though Fulham wants the teenager to spend one more season at the club, they may be powerless to stop him from leaving London.
