Several Spurs fans are not happy with the news that the potential signing of Ryan Sessegnon from Fulham has gathered momentum and the club are now confident of securing a deal (Football Insider).
Tottenham are searching for a left-back who could replace Danny Rose as the England international’s future has been called into question, particularly since he was left out of their pre-season tour of Asia.
The deal for Sessegnon is rumoured to be for around £25million, although there are reports that his twin brother Steven, who is a right-back by trade, may also be included in the deal which may change the fee.
And there are some Spurs fans who are apprehensive that he may not be up to scratch for the Champions League finalists.
Here is just a bit of the reaction:

Ryan sessegnon does not have the defensive ability of a Lb and as for RB . It’s quite clear that of any foyth is the 1st choice and for me this I’d a BIG ISSUE

If this is our idea of signing a LB I officially want to die

If the board think Sess is a like-for-like Rose replacement, they’re seriously wrong

Why do we not pursue Digne or Firpo? Sess had one good season in Championship.

To think a 19 year old who hasn’t played regularly in a position will be better than an established international is a little optimistic to say the least. Maybe in a season or 2 of learning yes.
