Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their club to Fulham star, Ryan Sessegnon after a number of eye-catching performances have shot the 17-year-old into the headlines. A number of other Premier League clubs are also reportedly pursuing Sessegnon and despite the fact the versatile left-sided player has been plying his trade in England’s second tier and he’s currently being touted for a shock England call-up.
Ryan Sessegnon burst into the first team at Fulham last season where he made 25 Championship appearances, chipping in with five goals and three assists, including a classy brace away at Newcastle to see his side come out 3-1 winners. If the then 16-year-old was in dreamland after netting his first Championship goals in the 2016/17 season, then this year will be a real shock for him. The London-born left-back, who has seen himself deployed on the wing at times, has netted 14 goals putting him joint 4th in the Championship’s goal scoring table.
Sessegnon, rated at a huge £25.2m by Transfermarkt, seems to reach new landmarks every week as he netted his first senior hat-trick back in November as his side edged out Sheffield United 5-4 in a nine-goal-thriller at Bramall Lane. Sessegnon then helped lift his side into the promotion play-off places as Fulham edged out Nottingham Forest 2-0 at Craven Cottage.
Whether Fulham achieve promotion the Premier League or not this season, it’s a fairly safe bet to say that Sessegnon will be playing Premier League football next year and our resident Reds would love to see him arrive on Merseyside as soon as possible.
Here’s what Liverpool fans think of the Fulham star:

Really would love @LFC to go and buy that Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham that’s kid is going to be something special… Scoring goals for fun playing on the wing/lb Klopp would really improve his game more.. #LFC #SummerTransfer

I’d personally love #LFC to buy Sessegnon from Fulham but leave him with them for the next 18 months! What a sensational young talent! Developing so well.

Wonder if, even though Andy Robertson has pretty much boxed off the LB position now, #LFC could go for Ryan Sessegnon initially as competition for Sadio Mane.
He’s scored 11 and assisted two in 18 games on the left wing for Fulham, and he’s 17. pic.twitter.com/IN2JIH8X0b
