Leeds are looking to bring in more players, with Sessegnon offering cover for the left-side, offensively and defensively.

Leeds United are among the interested clubs in Tottenham’s young winger Ryan Sessegnon on loan alongside Brighton and Hertha Berlin, according to The Athletic.

Sessegnon has hardly played for Spurs since signing from Fulham in 2019, scoring two and assisting six for the Cottagers in their Premier League campaign in 18/19. The 20-year old has made just 12 appearances for Spurs since signing for them, scoring one goal and assisting one in the Champions League.

Leeds fans will know the youngster well from his time at Fulham, scoring 16 goals and 8 assists in the Championship league and play-offs as he was an integral part of their promotion winning campaign.

The Whites have been on the hunt for two new midfielders, with bids reportedly made for Norwich’s Todd Cantwell and Bayern Munich youngster Michael Cuisance. Sessegnon is the newest name added to the list, with his experience as a full-back and winger primarily on the left side.

Leeds aren’t considered to be one of the front-runners in the Sessegnon race, with The Athletic’s David Ornstein saying:

“Brighton, Southampton, and Hertha Berlin are currently showing the most interest, with Leeds another potential destination,” perhaps suggesting that he is not top of the list for Marcelo Bielsa amongst the concrete interest in Cantwell and Cuisance.

Although he is seemingly not the primary focus for Leeds, a move for Sessegnon could be some very good business for The Whites this summer.
