Danny Rose’s comments suggesting he may be ‘moved on’ from Tottenham this summer could open the door for Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon, according to Football.London.

Rose, 28, has spent 12 years at Spurs since joining them from Leeds back in 2007.

And, despite making more appearances last season than any other in his career, he has hinted his age may mean the club decide to sell him.

Danny Rose has had a long-running battle with Welshman Ben Davies over the left-back position for Spurs.

And according to The Sun, Rose’s replacement could be someone who has been linked with Spurs for several transfer windows now, Englishman Ryan Sessegnon.

Sessegnon, 19, impressed in his second season with Fulham, where he played as a left-back/left winger, scoring 16 goals in 52 appearances for the Championship side, according to Who Scored.

But he struggled to adjust to the Premier League and was often used as an impact substitute towards the end of the season as Fulham were relegated back down to the Championship.

Nevertheless, he remains a perfect fit for Spurs given the history the club has for bringing through young English talent.

In addition, Christian Eriksen’s potential exit from the club – a player who was used on the left – could mean Tottenham move swiftly to secure Sessegnon because of his ability to play in either defence or midfield.

And part of the draw for Sessegnon wanting to join Spurs is that previously mentioned proven track record that Pochettino has to bring through young players – though it is reported the teenager will set them back £45 million.

Sessegnon was heavily linked with a move to the north London club last season but after Fulham won the Play-Offs he decided to stay with the newly promoted side.

Football London are reporting that Spurs are waiting for Sessegnon to return to England following his duties with the national side at the European U21 Championships.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who notoriously drives a hard bargain, is in a strong negotiating position given the money Fulham spent last season.

The west London club’s relegation will more than likely mean they have to free up some funds by reducing their wage bill for their upcoming Championship campaign.

Tottenham could therefore receive a better deal for Sessegnon, but there is no doubt a young English talent often costs over and above what his record suggests he should be worth.

Regardless, Spurs fans will be happy to see any player move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after a barren spell of transfer activity, and Sessegnon is the perfect start.

  • I’m not convinced that Sess is a left back, maybe left wing back but we do need an upgrade on Rose, who though he recovered his drive still lacks any real quality or vision in attack and still very mixed defensively
    Hard to find quality full backs that can provide width and creativity in atttack and equally are good defenders
    I like Digne certainly a better creative player than Rose going forward, although like Rose a bit mixed defensively, maybe less prone to giving away unneccessary free kicks in dangerous areas
    I do like the look of Tierney and think he could prove an excellent signing butequally it is a lot easier to look great in Scotland than it would in the PL. Still he looks a player who could do that

  • Why is levy stalling on buying players again ….we have players lining up wanting to play for spurs ! Levy get them in so they can be part of the team ….hurry up buy buy …..or poch will bye bye bye spurs

  • Sessegnon is wrong for Spurs, he is a Left Midfielder- he cannot defend like a LB or LWB and he cannot attack like a LW. He is a nothing player and is too small and lightweight for midfield let alone the Premiership which is why he was dropped to the Fulham bench for most of the season- £50M? I think not. Spurs currently have the same problem with Trippier- he is a RM or Right Midfielder- he cannot defend for his life so is no RB or RWB and he cannot cross and go past people so will never be a RW. Please STOP buying RM and LM players, they do not fit the Tottenham system- unless we suddenly regress 20 years and start playing 4-4-2. Rant over….
