Jose Mourinho is keen to add Fulham’s wing sensation Ryan Sessegnon to his team next season. This ambition will bring him head to head with Premier League rivals, most prominently Tottenham Hotspur.
Sessegnon who is just 17 has been a sensation in the championship this season and his form helped Fulham reach the playoffs for a Premier League place.
He was heavily scouted by top English teams this season and he is most likely going to end up in one of the major teams come next season, and both Manchester United and Tottenham want to be that team.
He was reportedly very close to signing for Liverpool a few weeks back, but the Reds have turned their attention to other alternatives as the player continues to stall on deciding on his future.
Mourinho has been less than impressed by Luke Shaw’s fitness and application this season and has publicly called him out on numerous occasions, he wants Sessegnon to come and compete with the England international.
Mauricio Pochettino could sanction the sale of Danny Rose this summer as big clubs continue to show interest in the England left back, Sessegnon represents a good alternative for a player that could replace him.
