£50m star to snub Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to join Tottenham

18-year-old Ryan Sessegnon, who is playing for Fulham is reportedly set to snub Manchester United to play under Mauricio Pochettino.

Sessegnon’s contract expires next season and the Telegraph claim Spurs will face competition from United, as well as French champions Paris Saint-Germain and German side Red Bull Leipzig.

The £50m rated player can play either side of defence or attack, having regularly been deployed as a left-sided midfielder and a right winger this season. And the qualified play is reportedly keen to join Tottenham rather than Manchester United.

Sessegnon provided six assists, scoring twice, in 38 appearances for Fulham this campaign and has already played 120 times for the London side despite his age.
