Barcelona Ramp Up Interest In Tottenham Player Ryan Sessegnon
By Mike Parrott
Barcelona are ramping up their interest in Tottenham youngster Ryan Sessegnon. The English winger has only made 12 appearances for Spurs and Barcelona are interested in making a swap deal to attain him.
Ryan Sessegnon has had a season to forget.
After lighting up the Championship in the 2017/18 season for Fulham, Sessegnon has lost a lot of his hype. After Fulham's disappointing lone season back in the Premier League, Sessegnon joined Tottenham Hotspur for an estimated £25 million with Spurs valuing him as part of their future English core.
However, Sessegnon has barely appeared under current Spurs manager Jose Mourinho. With him only appearing in four Premier League games, the hopeful wonderkid might be leaving England soon.
This is what I want to see from Ryan Sessegnon, running at his man with pace and great end product. He's got the ability, but looks so timid at the moment to even attempt to beat an opponent and instead always opts for the safe option. #THFC pic.twitter.com/NfAjHlj1vK

According to SkySports, Barcelona has reportedly showed interest in Sessegnon with the hopes of swapping him for the likes of Nelson Semedo, or Samuel Umtiti. The left-back and centre-back pairing have constantly been in the rumour mill with their time at Barcelona seeming to be up.
Barcelona has already had talks with Tottenham about the upcoming summer transfer window but over a different player. Sources said that Barcelona had offered a loan deal for Tanguy Ndombele which was promptly rejected by Daniel Levy.

The Spanish giants are keen to add another left-back to their ranks, albeit prioritising a centre-forward such as Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez.
Barcelona's intrigue in the 20-year-old extends back more than two years since their scouts were in the stands at Wembley to watch him in the 2018 Championship play-off final.
Do you think Ryan Sessegnon could be at Barcelona next season?
