Tottenham fans have had a somewhat mixed reaction to Journalist Richard Cawley’s claim that Spurs have reached an agreement for Fulham star Ryan Sessegnon.
Mentioned to me today by a good source that Ryan Sessegnon to Tottenham is pretty close to done.

Cawley has indeed claimed that a ‘good source’ has informed him of the agreement.
The teenager has been a long term target for the Lilywhites with a move reported to be inches close last season.
OMG wow wow wow !😅

Fulham’s relegation to the Championship has also boosted Levy in his pursuit for the talented youngster.
Sessegnon had an underwhelming first season in the English top flight scoring only two goals and bagging only six assists.
Tottenham fans have now taken to Twitter to react to the latest developments in Sessegnon’s pursuit.
Here’s what they had to say:
He was shhocking this year. He didn't step up to the premiership at all. Hopefully Poch can get it out of him but I'm not a big fan at mo. Think we need to look at the next level of player to move forward. But hey I will support no matter what. TTIL COYS

He has got 2 goals & 6 assist in PL. Thats not bad for a 18 year old who was played all over the park, in a rank bad defensive side.

Don’t judge the guy based on 1 season in a very poor Fulham side. The year before he was arguably the best player in the Championship and that was at 17. Put him a team that gets plenty of the ball and he’ll flourish

What would have been exciting a year ago no longer is.

I think it’s a great deal with little risk and huge potential upside. He’s still only 18.

I hope I live to regret saying this but: groan.

Think he could be really special under Pochettino. If these rumors are true, I’m very excited about him.

There is no way he is ready for the Premier League this season proved that as he was poor most of the season.
