The talented youngster has been linked with a move to the top flight since Fulham crashed out of the Play-Offs at the hands of Reading, but it was unclear where his destination would be.

Tottenham are reported to be leading Liverpool in the race to sign Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon this summer.

Tottenham did face competition from Liverpool for the left-sided player's signature but, according to the Mirror, Jurgen Klopp now fears that he has missed out.

Liverpool are now without a first choice natural full back, and James Milner has had to deputise their all season, with Klopp wanting to bring in a young and upcoming left sided defender.

While having the choice between first-choice at Liverpool and back-up at Spurs might not seem overly balanced, allowing Sessegnon to remain based in London and with a clear pathway to the first team might suit him, given his age and lack of experience thus far.

However, amid rumours that Tottenham Hotspur and England fullback Danny Rose is on his way to Manchester to join either United or City, Spurs are expected to bring Sessegnon in to compete with Welsh defender Ben Davies for the starting spot.

The 17-year-old left-back has lit up the Championship with a series of glittering performances in recent months, showing off fantastic attacking talent that has seen him compared to a young Gareth Bale.
