Tottenham and Manchester United have been linked with England international and Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon.

The latest reports seem positive for the Old Trafford club, who are prepared to make a move to hire the services of the 18-year-old sesnsation.

The British source have claimed that Jose Mourinho’s team is now ahead of Spurs in the race to sign the youngster, who was Fulham’s best player in the last campaign and helped the Cottagers earn promotion to the Premier league.

The €57million rated (ES) starlet can play anywhere on the left hand side of the field and he netted 18 times in all competitions last season.

Since moving to United, Mourinho has mainly used Ashley Young in the LB role but the England international is naturally a winger and a specialist is needed at Old Trafford to acquire the position.

Therefore, if the Red Devils do end up signing Sessegnon, we can expect him to start in the left wing-back position under the Portuguese boss.
