Liverpool and Spurs reportedly battling to sign Sessegnon

Liverpool fear they will miss out to Tottenham in a battle to sign Fulham youngster Ryan Sessegnon, according to the Daily Express.

The teenage left-back, who has yet to sign a professional contract at Craven Cottage, has been linked with several top Premier League clubs in recent months.

Spurs are believed to be pursuing a deal to sign him and the Express say Liverpool fear he will move to north London.

On the other hand, The Independent say Liverpool are confident they will agree a deal to take Sessegnon to Anfield this summer.

And the Daily Mail say Fulham are confident Sessegnon will sign a contract with them despite the speculation over his future.

There has also been speculation over the future of Whites star Tom Cairney, particularly in light of Fulham’s recent defeat in the Championship play-offs.

The Daily Telegraph say Newcastle are set to make an approach and are undeterred by reports Fulham want £20m for the 26-year-old.

The Telegraph say Newcastle are likely to offer Fulham £12m and that Cairney could be keen to move on now Fulham’s hopes of a return to the top flight have been quashed.

Meanwhile, the Northern Echo believe Newcastle will make an approach for Cairney and that the Scotland international is also wanted by West Ham.
