Tottenham Hotspur are close to concluding a deal to sign Fulham teenager Ryan Sessegnon, according to a report in England.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Tottenham are set to include their youth graduate Josh Onomah as part of a £30m deal to sign Sessegnon in the summer transfer window.
The same article states that impressive Fulham full-back Sessegnon will complete his switch to Tottenham this week before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
According to the same story, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino is prepared to sacrifice Onomah in order to get a deal for the long-term Tottenham target over the line.
The Daily Mail goes on to state that the Fulham prospect has made it clear that he wants to leave the Cottagers to make the switch across the English capital to London throughout the summer.
The 19-year-old scored two goals in 38 games in his first season in the Premier League after building an impressive reputation in the Championship over the past couple of seasons.
Sessegnon has netted 25 times in 120 games in all competitions over the past three seasons since his breakout campaign in the 2016-17 Championship season.
Tottenham signed Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele in a club record £52m deal earlier this summer to bolster their midfield ahead of the new Premier League season.
