According to a report by reliable football.london journalist Alasdair Gold, Spurs star Ryan Sessegnon could be sold after the club’s deal to sign club icon Gareth Bale – especially considering the acquisition of Sergio Reguilon also has the potential to diminish his playing time.
Sessegnon, who signed last summer in a £25 million move, hasn’t exactly been a firm part of Jose Mourinho’s plans – with the Englishman starting just four Premier League games over the entirety of 2019/2020.
Should Spurs sell, loan or keep Ryan Sessegnon?
A rising star at Fulham, chairman Daniel Levy invested heavily in bringing the youngster to north London – but a £27.2 million deal for Reguilon has now thrown question marks around the defender’s future just over 12 months after his arrival.
Alasdair Gold, writing for football.london, has claimed the club could consider offers for Sessegnon already along with fellow wide player Erik Lamela – with his market value currently hovering around the £22.5 million mark.
Given Spurs’ financial situation, with a report from the Athletic claiming that they had to borrow £175 million through a government scheme, Levy and co may want to recuperate some of their recent investment in order to offset huge potential losses.
Even though Mourinho hasn’t handed chance after chance to Sessegnon since his arrival, the Portuguese boss does apparently rate him.
Indeed, the ex-Chelsea favourite lauded Sessegnon as a ‘fantastic‘ player and even likened him to ex-England international Ashley Cole – potentially leaving critics to wonder why the club even signed Reguilon with tags like these.
Regardless, as supporters swoon over Tottenham’s headline-grabbing double swoop, it could spell the end for Sessegnon unless the club consider sending him out on loan.
