Given this recent news, it seems like the north London side are closing in on a very last-minute transfer swoop, as there’s less than 12 hours left in this summer’s window.
Sessegnon is one of the brightest young talents in England at the moment, thus this deal from Spurs will seem like a bargain should the player reach his full potential in the future.
The 19-year-old is currently plying his trade in the Championship with Fulham after the Whites were relegated from the Premier League last year.
However, it seems like the winger is set to seal a move back to England’s top flight today following his news regarding Spurs agreeing a deal for his signature.
Journalist Gary Jacob has also noted that Sessegnon is now going to undergo a medical with the north London side this morning ahead of his move.

Sessegnon burst onto the scene with Fulham in the 2017/18 season, as the forward bagged 15 goals and six assists in 46 games for the west London club, as he played a crucial role in their promotion to the Premier League.
And now, it looks like the teenager is going to get the chance to prove himself as the top level again this season should his proposed move to Spurs be finalised ahead of the 5pm deadline.
