To lose one was, perhaps, inevitable, but too lose a second would be so hard to take.
After seeing Ryan Sessegnon make the short move from South West London to North London, joining Tottenham Hotspur, could Fulham be in danger of also losing his younger brother, Steven, to the same club?
According to The Sun, that is the scenario Fulham, and their supporters fear.
Steven, after seeing his older brother leave, has, this season, established himself as a key member of Scott Parker’s side having started in four of Fulham’s six Championship games so far.
But his undoubted talents have, according to our source, alerted Tottenham to the possibility of signing him.
Steven may be tied to a Fulham contract that runs until 2022 and has an option for another twelve months but, as we’ve found out before, it is always hard to resist the overtures of a big club when they come calling.
Let’s hope this time is different.
