Manchester United are ready to battle with Tottenham for the signature of Ryan Sessegnon this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils are set to go head to head with the north London side for the highly-rated Fulham left-back in the summer transfer window.

The report says Jose Mourinho is keen to “snap up” the talented young English defender and bring in cover at left-back at Old Trafford.

The same story claims that Sessegnon is yet to agree a professional contract with his current club Fulham, despite making 25 appearances in the Championship this season.

The article also mentions Tottenham and Liverpool as having shown interest in signing the teenage defender.

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the Red Devils prepare for a return to the Champions League next season.

The Red Devils secured their spot in the group stage by beating Ajax in last week’s Europa League final.
