Tottenham Hotspur fans were able to witness Ryan Sessegnon in action on Tuesday night, however, to say many of them were pleased on Twitter with what he was able to produce on the pitch would not necessarily be correct.

The versatile Fulham man was in action for England’s Under-21 side against France when they blew a one-goal lead in the final moments of the game to lose 2-1.

The 19-year-old started the game for the Young Lions and looked to make an impact early on when he hit the crossbar inside the opening quarter-of-an-hour, however, he was substituted late into the second half with Dominic Calvert-Lewin coming on in his place.

Tottenham are thought to have been interested in Sessegnon for a very long time and rumours about a move to the north London have continued to further intensify over the summer following Fulham’s relegation from the Premier League.

The teenager is thought to have told the west London outfit that he wants to move to Spurs this summer (Guardian), whilst The Sun have claimed recently that it could cost Mauricio Pochettino’s side around £35million to take him away from Craven Cottage.

And, going by the reactions of fans on Twitter following the defeat, it would appear many of them are not convinced that Sessegnon is worth that amount of money, whilst others stated that they did not see anything worth fussing over in regards to the young man.

Here are some of their reactions…

  • To be honest, I don’t rate Sessegnon as a top Premiership player, he was good in the Championship but did nothing to change my mind last season for Fulham.

  • I’d love to see Poch improve Sessegnon, but Fulham must be realistic.
    The way he’s developed over the past 18 months is not going to result in a £45m fee for him.
    Even the likes of Chelsea, United, City etc., who’ve got more money than brains, won’t
    pay that.
    Spurs should offer £25m tops. And hope that Fulham will see the sense of that, before the
    lad starts to disappear off the improvement radar completely. Sessegnon too should insist
    he gets a move to Spurs over anyone else, IF he wants to improve as a player, and catch up
    again with his fading potential.
