Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a summer move for young Fulham star Ryan Sessegnon.
The 18-year old is out of contract at Craven Cottage at the next season, and whilst Fulham would like to tie him down to a new long-term deal, talks have so far stalled. That has put Spurs, who have long been monitoring the player, on a state of alert, and now they are ready to translate their interest into a concrete bid once the window opens, with a fee of £50 million said to be in the offing.
The wing-back has also been rumoured to be on the shopping lists of both Manchester United and PSG, but Sessegnon is reluctant to move out of London, a fact which would put Spurs in pole position.
There have been suggestions that Spurs will buy him and loan him back to Fulham, who are almost certainly going to be playing back in the Championship next season, after their latest defeat at home to Liverpool on Sunday.
