Fulham’s teenage full back Ryan Sessegnon, is not short of options if he wants to move this summer. Liverpool looked to be in pole position to sign the left back, but now face a serious competition from Sevilla.
The Spaniards have joined many other top European teams who are plotting a summer move for the player.
Sevilla who are having a great season that has seen them occupy third position in La Liga, just three points off first placed Real Madrid, want to sign the teenager.
However, there are indications that the immediate departure of Sporting director Monchi, and the uncertainty surrounding the long-term future of Coach Sampaoli may put a stop to the deal.
Sessegnon who has stated his desire to help his London club get back to the Premier league, did look likely to end up at Anfield next season. He would turn 17 in May and Fulham hope he will sign professional terms with them when that time comes.
It is believed that Alberto Moreno will leave the Reds at the end of this season, and James Milner who has been deputising for the Spaniard is gradually running out of pace.
Liverpool hope to tempt the youngster with a guarantee of first team football that will aid his development.
