Tottenham set to lodge £12m bid to win the race for Championship star

The Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern want the club to sign the “next Dele Alli” again.

Very few would have predicted quite how much of a success the signing of Dele Alli would prove to be when he joined from Milton Keynes.

But he has since established himself as a regular goal scorer from midfield and one of the top performers in the Premier League, as well as being a regular member of England’s starting XI.

The “next Dele Alli” could well be Ryan Sessegnon and Spurs are desperate to steal a march in the race for the Fulham youngster.

According to The Sun, Tottenham Hotspur will submit a £12m bid to land the talented teenager, who recently turned 17.

Sessegnon has enjoyed a phenomenal breakthrough season, scoring 7 goals from left back and becoming the first ever player born after 2000 to score in the Football League.

The England under-19 international is also the youngest ever Championship goal scorer and has netted a brace against Newcastle United.

Manchester City and Liverpool are among a number of other admirers so Tottenham have decided to move quickly and launch a £12m bid in an attempt to fend off the competition and sign the Championship starlet.

Spurs fans – £12m for Sessegnon: sign him or leave it? Let us know below…
