A lot of punters here in the Transfer Tavern cannot even remember what it was like to be 16-years-old, so there’s a certain level of jealousy in the room amid reports from Football.London that Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon is on his way to Liverpool this summer.
The left-back grabbed headlines on the weekend when his two goals vs. Newcastle in the Championship took his tally this term to six, which is some return given his youthful age, while his 23 league outings this term hint at his maturity as a footballer.
Football.London claim that Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Spurs have all been keen, but that Liverpool are set to win the race for him.
They reveal that the youngster is ‘on his way’ to Merseyside this summer while also stating that the Reds are confident the deal will get over the line.
Although maybe a little young to walk straight into Jurgen Klopp’s XI, Sessegnon may see Anfield as appealing given that veteran midfielder James Milner is the current left-back on Merseyside ahead of the haphazard Alberto Moreno.
Liverpool is the right choice for Ryan Sessegnon – agree?
