Speaking to Football Insider, ex-England international Danny Mills has urged Tottenham and chairman Daniel Levy to offload defender Ryan Sessegnon in a deal that ‘could be good for all parties’ – which comes after Alasdair Gold’s recent claim that he could be one of the players likely to make way as the club sign Gareth Bale and Sergio Reguilon.
Sessegnon, who put pen to paper on a £25 million switch last summer from Fulham, has found game time increasingly hard to come by at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium under both Mauricio Pochettino and Jose Mourinho.
Despite impressing in flashes, which included scoring on his full Champions League debut and first ever start for Tottenham, Ben Davies has still been the regular first choice left-back for much of his time in north London.
Who should Spurs sell after signing Bale and Reguilon?
Now, after securing a sensational double swoop for Bale and Reguilon from La Liga giants Real Madrid, which will cost Levy and co £42.5 million in total (BBC and Evening Standard), pundit Mills has strongly hinted that offloading Sessegnon would be a win-win scenario for all parties involved.
The Englishman, who has been starved of match action, would have the opportunity to continue his rise to stardom with regular playing time – meanwhile Tottenham could recuperate a potentially helpful fee to make back the investment in Bale and Reguilon.
Reliable football.london correspondent Alasdair Gold recently claimed that both Erik Lamela and Sessegnon could be among the most likely to leave as Spurs look to balance the books and Mills thinks the ‘unbelievable‘ Tottenham outcast should leave.
“When you make these big moves and don’t play it can be soul-destroying at times. There’s a lot of excitement and you’re thinking ‘oh, I am going to a big club and I am a part of this’ but after a season or so you realise you’re not really a part of it anymore.
“You’re on the periphery, you’re on the fringes, you’re not really playing football.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if definitely a loan deal happened or if Spurs can do a permanent deal to get him out before the window shuts. That could be good for all parties.”
Whether or not Sessegnon does make way remains to be seen, but it may indeed be a great move for both the player and club.
