Spurs could sign Sessegnon twins if Fulham lose play-off final

Ryan Sessegnon’s twin brother Steven could be included in any deal to take the Fulham star to Tottenham this summer.

The pair turned 18 today and Tottenham have long been admirers of £50million-rated Ryan, who was named Championship player of the season and helped Fulham reach the Play-off Final by defeating Derby in the semi-finals this week.

Ryan is happy to stay at Fulham if they are promoted to the top flight but if they lose to Aston Villa at Wembley next Saturday, it seems inevitable that he will be sold.

Tottenham started following the twins long before Ryan made his senior debut as a 16-year-old in August 2016 and showed strong interest in Ryan last summer. It is believed, however, that Spurs have also looked at taking Steven to north London as well as Ryan. Although Steven has not made the same progress as Ryan — he has made three first-team appearances to Ryan’s 81 — the right-back still has plenty of potential.

The twins came through the Fulham academy together and both signed three-year contracts last summer.

Ryan has had an outstanding season for Fulham and was even touted as an outside contender to be included in the England squad for the World Cup.

He is Fulham’s top scorer this season with 16 goals and was named the Championship Player of the Year. Ryan was also in the running with Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Ederson for the PFA Young Player of the Year award, and his stock rose further on Monday when he scored one goal and created the other to inspire Fulham to victory against Derby in their play-off semi-final.

Ryan is one of the hottest prospects in Europe but Steven, who can also play at centre-back and as a holding midfielder, is also an exciting young talent.

He was part of the England side that won the Under-17 World Cup last year and his two assists in the final helped the Young Lions come from two goals down to beat Spain.

Steven has made two senior appearances for Fulham this season, both in the Carabao Cup.

In an interview with Standard Sport in February, Steven said: “It is great to see Ryan doing so well. I just want to be up there with him. I keep working hard and soon I will be up there.”
