Sessegnon on Juventus' radar

23rd April 2019, 11:55 by Tom Hill

Tottenham face competition from Juventus for Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon, according to reports.

The Cottagers are resigned to losing the 18-year-old as they prepare for life back in the Championship next season.

Sessegnon has endured a frustrating season in the top flight, scoring just two goals in 32 appearances. He was forced to start several games on the bench during Claudio Ranieri's reign but Tottenham are still willing to splash the cash to bring him to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Spurs are long-term admirers of Sessegnon but Juventus have now joined the race. Juve scouts have been impressed by the England Under-21 international and boss Massimiliano Allegri has given the club the green light as he tries to bolster his squad ahead of another Champions League push in 2020.

Sessegnon may have just three games left in a Fulham shirt and he will be hoping to go out on a high against Cardiff, Wolves and Newcastle.
