Sky: Tottenham and Fulham have a deal for Ryan Sessegnon

It took money plus a player to get the job done.

While it is STILL not officially official, Sky Sports News claims to understand the numbers, and then some, surrounding the deal for Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon.

On the heels of Wednesday’s news that a medical would take place on Thursday morning, we now see that the deal could cost Tottenham up to £30m, in addition to sending midfielder Josh Onomah to Craven Cottage.

Whether you view Sessegnon as a winger or future starting left back, there is no denying that the 19-year-old has great potential, and let’s say there are considerably worse managers under which he could learn than Mauricio Pochettino. Sending Josh Onomah, a player that it seemed clear was not in Pochettino’s plans, the other direction would be helpful to both player and club, as it would give him a chance to play much more frequently, and it would save Spurs some money overall.

What do you think? Is this a fair price for Sessegnon, or is it too much? Either way, we’re still waiting for official confirmation, but it’s close to crossing the finish line.
