RYAN SESSEGNON could push for a move to Celtic, a report from Football Insider claims. The 20-year-old left-wingback has been made available for loan by Jose Mourinho following the signing of Sergio Reguilon from Real Madrid.
The youngster joined Spurs for £25m last summer but has struggled to establish himself as a first team regular with the London club meaning he will look for a loan move to get some valuable first team football.
Sessegnon sees Celtic as an opportunity to become a first team regular and show Mourinho what he can do, whilst (hopefully) winning trophies. The move to Celtic could very well be contingent upon beating Sarajevo tonight in the Europa League play-off.
Spurs reportedly want £5m fee from Celtic to cover wages and a fee to loan the player which could be a stumbling block with Neil Lennon and the scouting team potentially seeing better value elsewhere in a purchase.
The recently departed Bolingoli’s antics meant that Greg Taylor was the only first team left back at the club after Jonny Hayes and Calvin Miller left in the summer. Sessegnon represents a player that the club would otherwise not afford but would fit perfectly into the side – doing on the left what Jeremie Frimpong does on the left.
With 120 appearances to his name during his time at Fulham, Sessegnon boasts an impressive 25 goals and 18 assists. Although game time in London dried up as the manager that signed him Mauricio Pochettino was replaced by Jose Mourinho. It was the Portuguese manager that gave him some opportunities as injuries hampered Spurs last season. In 12 appearances, he got one goal and one assist so will be looking to get game time.
