Fulham may be resigned to losing prized asset Ryan Sessegnon this summer but they won't let him go cheap. A host of clubs are believed to be interested, but the Cottagers will demand up to £40m for the 18-year-old.
Fulham, whose relegation was confirmed with their 4-1 defeat to Watford, spent upwards of £100m in a bid to make a real impact on the Premier League in 2018/19, but things didn't work out as planned.
A swift return to the Championship
Fulham, however, appear adamant they will not be shortchanged, which is a big blow for Tottenham.
Mauricio Pochettino had identified Sessegnon as one of his primary targets this summer and the club recently stepped up their interest
According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham may not have the luxury of drawing out the transfer either with plenty of other suitors believed to be in the wings. One of the more prominent links comes from PSG, who may have no problem matching the fee.
The Spurs board will have to decide whether or not they intend to be pulled into a bidding war with the free-spending Ligue 1 giants. Pochettino should have money to spend after consecutive windows of little-to-no transfer activity.
Sessegnon was instrumental in Fulham's promotion last season with 16 goals and eight assists. He added a further two goals and six assists to his career tally in the Premier League
