Fulham are reportedly ready to express their desire to take Ryan Sessegnon to the Craven Cottage on loan for next season.
The Cottagers gained promotion back to the Premier League on Tuesday, beating Brentford in the extra time at the Wembley Stadium – ensuring that their top-flight absence was short lived.
Sessegnon has struggled for playing time since making the move to North London last summer, following Fulham’s relegation into the Championship.
The 20-year-old only made six appearances in the league during the 2019/20 campaign, and had no single minute under his belt after football resumed following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
Tottenham are said to be reluctant to sanction a move away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the player, knowing that he hopes to play regularly at the club.
At Fulham, the youngster is aware that chances will likely come his way having previously represented them as he managed 120 appearances for the first team after coming through the academy before moving to Spurs.
In the 2017/18 Sky Bet Championship season, Sessegnon played 46 times for the Cottagers, scoring on 15 occasions and also being credited with six assists. He was also named Championship Player of the Season at age 17, helping them to secure Premier League promotion.
Having made the move to join Tottenham, the left-sided player was tipped to realise his full potential, but a couple of injuries and lack of faith shown in him by Jose Mourinho has all but left him in shambles as he considers a move away from the club in bid for regular play time.
With the current demands of the transfer market, Tottenham are away that not playing regularly could likely decrease the value of the 20-year-old, with many clubs across the continent open to taking him on loan.
Fulham manager Scott Parker has already confirmed the club are looking to avoid the same mistakes they did in the summer of 2018, where they spent so much money and ended up being relegated.
“There were some clear errors made last time,” said Parker. “We will learn from that. We need to learn from that. We’re going into the best league in the world, the best players, the best teams. It’s a brutal league and I realise the challenge ahead.”
