Fulham might finally have to let up on their fight to keep Ryan Sessegnon as Manchester United readies up a massive £50m bid. The teenager has been wooed by a number of Premier League outfits but the Red Devils now have the upper hand with their war chest of a transfer budget.
Plenty of sides from all over Europe have boarded the hype train but demand for the player started rising significantly since he got named the 2017/18 EFL Championship Player Of The Season and the Young Player Of The Season.
The Whites might have earned themselves a place in the English top-flight but will find it hard to hold on to their wonderkid for too long. The 18-year-old prodigy played a key role in their fight for promotion last term, contributing with 16 goals and 8 assists.
He is versatile on the left flank and already has the composure and maturity of seasoned professional. Not sure how Fulham will go around trying to replace the 30-cap England youth international but they will have to try if they plan on staying in the Premier League beyond just one season.
It is not a question of if, it certainly is a question of when Sessegnon will make his way out of Craven Cottage. If he leaves as soon as this very summer, here are a few candidates the Lillywhites should look into as a possible replacement.
