Tottenham need to move for this 19-year-old Championship star to resolve right-back issues

Why Tottenham should sign Steven Sessegnon at the earliest

Tottenham’s capture of Ryan Sessegnon could be one of the best moves in the transfer window.

The former Fulham starlet is a bright talent and working under Mauricio Pochettino should unlock his potential.

The 19-year-old is out of action with an injury and hasn’t featured for the first-team but there are high expectations from Sessegnon.

The left-back/winger wasn’t the only young player that Tottenham were eyeing this summer. The Guardian claims that Ryan’s twin brother, Steven Sessegnon, was also on the radars of the London giants.

A move for the right-back didn’t play out, but Tottenham need to sign the other Sessegnon too.

Solving the right-back conundrum

Spurs sold Kieran Trippier this summer and are down to just Kyle Walker-Peters and Serge Aurier as senior right-backs in the team.

Aurier has been linked with a move to AC Milan and Pochettino is open to the Ivorian leaving in the summer (h/t Calciomercato).

Should that take place, Juan Foyth can play in this position, but he isn’t a natural right-back.

Spurs cannot buy players this summer but they can sell to foreign clubs as the European transfer window is open till 2 September.

Losing Aurier would be a blow as an injury to Walker-Peters could become problematic for the club.

A move for the other Sessegnon makes sense in the winter window, and it will be interesting to see how he performs for the Cottagers in the coming months.

Kyle Walker-Peters

Fulham have started their Championship season well with three wins from four games as they look to return to the Premier League.

Steven didn’t feature much in the Premier League last season but has impressed in a couple of outings for Fulham recently.

The youngster also has the potential to become a quality player and could be a smart signing for Spurs in January.

Tottenham cannot go through the entire season relying on just one recognised senior right-back, and Steven Sessegnon could grow into the role should he join in the winter window.

Verdict

Tottenham need another right-back at the club and signing Steven Sessegnon makes a lot of sense.

Most of their signings under Pochettino have been players with potential and Steven fits that requirement.
