Fulham have been unable to agree terms on a new deal with Ryan Sessegnon who could now leave the club in the summer.

i like Sessegnon, but he has struggled at times in the Prem this season, maybe because he's in a poor side though.
He's young and Poch could turn him into a fab player.
Likely to be quite a bit of player movement both in and out at Spurs next window. He'd be an exciting addition.

He’s got potential but he struggled mightily with the Prem this season snd didnt have anywhere close to an impact on the season. I wouldnt spend anywhere close to what Fulham wanted for him last summer.

A disappointment this season, though the potential is obviously there. A player I would like us to take a look at is Daniel James of Swansea. His displays in the FA Cup has been phenomenon. His speed on the flank could only help Harry and Deli.

A few good players around him would make a difference.

Don't see what position he is. Playing amr at the moment and I don't see him having the close control to play that far forward for us. Left back would make a lot more sense.

It has been a massive step up for him this season but he is still developing physically and mentally. I think he is worth a punt at around the £20m mark. I always make a point of watching him closely and can’t really see what his natural position is. Loads of potential there for the right coach though.

I'm no scout so wouldn't be confident in him being a success or write him off as a flop.

But would love to see us get some young players like Sessegnon, Wan Bissaka and Brooks for Poch to work with.

Thought he signed a contract last season? And if he did that's us fucked then cos Fulham will still have a boner for him and Levy won't buy them out of it.

I was getting interested by the article until it suggested we would loan him back again next season. Spend 50m then loan him back so he can play in the Championship ? Not very likely to put it mildly

i do expect him to leave fulham and remain in the premiership. think the deal he got was to stay with fulham one more season where they will make a push for promotion, and if they didnt get it, he would be free to leave. so they got promotion and i guess he got this dream of playing in the EPL. i expect that at the end of the season, he will ask to leave, after all the has been loyal for 2 seasons. i think the board will owe him the chance to play at the top leave.

i can see us paying 30M for him, in installments, add ons and performance-based bonuses. but i do expect us to lose out to pool/arse etc who will throw more for him.

we have been after him for a while, i am sure we have build a rapport with him. so he mights chose to come to us if we meet the asking price.

we'll see i guess.

If reports are to be believed, we can rule out the likes of Liverpool & anyone outside London,, as he's (supposedly) made it clear he doesn't want to leave the capital/his family.

And if ITK is to be believed, he wants us, which would, you'd think, give us the edge if/when it comes to negotiations.

That said, I hope he's capable of more than he's shown thus far in the top flight.

A fair few youngsters, such as Brooks, Barnes (at Leicester), Wan-Bissaka, Foden, Lookman, Hudson-Odoi, Dalot, Maitland-Niles, Neves have, in my opinion, all shown more than Sessegnon has this season.

Buy 'em young and train 'em up.
Brookes, Maddison, Sessingnon, Barnes.et al
At least while Mauricio is still here.
before we abandon the whole project
as pressure for 'success' builds.

I wouldn't want us to spend copious amounts based on what I've seen thus far.

But what I will say is that the lad has loads of experience for his age. I mean c'mon he's only 18, are you expecting world beaters at 18.

Plenty of players hadn't even experienced the Premier league at his age, whether you consider his performances good or poor, I'm of the inkling that at least experiencing the prem can only be seen as a positive and gives Poch a headstart regarding something to work with.

Like I say, I'm certainly not of the view we should be laying 50 big 'uns out for this lad, but I can also see that he's very young and has bags of first team match experience.

It’s so frustrating that we are not selling players for a premium price at the moment.

We have already lost Dembele and we are likely to sell Eriksen and Alderweireld in the summer. Given their contracts it looks unlikely we’ll be getting market value for them.

So with a low net spend buying high quality youngsters is looking to be difficult.

Too good for the Championship, not good enough for the premiership.

He's not better than what we have.
