The win, last weekend, against Everton put a smile on the faces of Fulham supporters for the first time in many a month.

We’ve swallowed the bitter pill that is relegation and we’re looking to enjoy the rest of the season before we return, after a brief sojourn in the top-flight of English football, to the Championship.

However, what awaits us back in the second-tier remains to be seen.

Our immediate concerns relate to the make-up of the squad next season, having been given a taste of top-flight football, I’d be amazed if several of our current squad weren’t to push for a move to remain in the Premier League.

Some will be successful in their quest whilst others could very well be forced to remain at the club.

However, after spending in excess of £100 million last summer, Fulham could be faced with a situation whereby there is a necessity to sell to provide funds to give the club the chance of making an automatic return to the top-flight via a promotion campaign.

One player who I fear will be sold is Ryan Sessegnon.

The 18-year-old continues to be linked with a move away from Craven Cottage and the latest inference is, according to the red-top publication the Sun, is that Tottenham Hotspur remain favourites to sign the talented youngster courtesy of their manager, Mauricio Pochettino’s ability to nurture and get the best out of young English talents.

Personally, I believe that all that remains to be sorted is the size of the transfer fee.

Does anyone care to speculate on what figure the club would be prepared to settle on?

  • Not as much as you want. He was probably worth more before this season’s campaign where he was tested and came up short. No question he’s got talent but there are question marks over the physical side of his game and you are now in a buyers market. Basically Sessegnon knows he needs to leave to progress his career and even if someone else makes a better offer if he wants to go to Spurs and Spurs want him that will be where he ends up.

  • The Sun newspaper is generally full of bull however, what is known about this young man is that he doesn’t want to ply his trade up North and won’t consider moving away from London where his family are based. If Fulham we’re still in the premiership, I’m sure he’d prefer to stay there for a little longer but Spurs are a strong attraction and being a Spurs fan, I for one would welcome this particular young player to our club. With the right players around him and manager to coach him the right way, he will be a star. I feel for Fulham because they are a homely club but circumstances as they are at present, most of their better players will move on. The club will be back in the upper echelon before too long.

  • I feel that clubs will not be prepared to offer nore than 15m, there is a lot of rough edges to
    smooh out and that could take time .
    15m with a seasons loan back could be a good deal for Fulham.

  • I personally think that he is priceless to Fulham supporters, no amount of money would be right for a player that is adorned by many of us true supporters. If we did sell him, then we must not make the same mistake of this season and loan him back, what’s the point, loan players have been our downfall. If anything we should keep what we got and start to rebuild , our mistake was not to keep the team together that we had last year,it worked for Wolves and look where they are now.
