Tottenham Hotspur are close to securing a deal to sign Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Express is reporting that the Lilywhites are on the verge of seeing off competition from the likes of Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund to secure the 19-year-old’s signature.

The same story says that Spurs are in “pole position” to sign Sessegnon this summer as they look to bolster their squad ahead of the new campaign.

The left-sided player scored two goals and made six assists in 38 Premier League games for Fulham last season.

According to the same article, Tottenham are prepared to pay a transfer fee of around £25m plus add-ons as they look to bring Sessegnon to White Hart Lane.

That fee is thought to be still some way from the £45m Fulham are seeking, but the article gives the impression that a move is close.

Tottenham are looking to bolster their squad ahead of next season as Spurs aim to win their first major trophy under Mauricio Pochettino.

Last season, the north London side finished in fourth place in the Premier League table and reached the Champions League final, where they lost to Liverpool FC.
