Spurs are looking to wrap up deals for two other targets – Giovani Lo Celso and Bruno Fernandes – but they are facing significant difficulties in getting the deal done.
The report claims that Spurs are confident that they can secure a deal for the young left-winger before Thursday’s deadline.
Spurs have been courting Sessegnon all summer, and they are still working to reach an agreement for the 19-year-old, who is valued by the Championship club at close to £25m.
Sessegnon is a highly-rated young talented winger who can also play as an attacking left wing-back.
In fact, former Fulham boss, Claudio Ranieri praised him heavily last season after the Cottagers won 3-2 against Southampton – a match where Sessegnon stole the show.
The former PL winning boss with Leicester praised him as ‘one of the best’ young talents he has ever seen.
“He’s a young player with a lot of qualities,” the Italian said. “I think he’s one of the best young players that I’ve met.
“He must be exuberant and strong. But I saw him for the first time, for me he’s very intelligent. He will improve a lot.”
It remains to be seen whether Spurs can land all their three major targets this summer, and if they manage to do so, then the summer business will look very strong.
