It’s looking like there could be some movement early this week regarding Tottenham Hotspur’s longstanding interest in Ryan Sessegnon. According to the Telegraph this morning, Spurs and Fulham had a breakthrough in negotiations that could see a deal worth £20m plus escalators agreed very soon.

And there’s more — it could result in one or both of Josh Onomah and Georges-Kevin Nkoudou heading the other direction.

The Telegraph states that there has been interest from Fulham in Onomah, who has spent the past two seasons on loan at Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship (both under Steve Bruce), and who is no longer in Mauricio Pochettino’s plans. Spurs have been trying to offload Nkoudou for about that length of time as well. What’s not clear yet is whether either/both players will be used as part of a swap deal for Sessegnon, or if Fulham will use the cash from Sess’s sale to purchase Onomah outright.

Sessegnon has long been a target for Spurs, and there’s been an understanding that he’d like to continue his career under Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham. There’s also been talk about bringing his twin brother Steven, a right back, along as well although it appears this deal does not include him.

Stay tuned! This could move quickly.
