Ryan Sessegnon arrived at Tottenham Hotspur from Fulham last summer.

In his final two seasons with the Cottagers, the 20-year-old scored 18 goals and registered 14 assists in the league.

However, the England U21 international has failed to replicate the same form with Spurs, due to injuries and a lack of regular opportunities at the north London club.

He has been restricted to six appearances in all competitions for José Mourinho’s side this calendar year, but that’s not stopped him drawing attention from elsewhere.

Mundo Deportivo journalist Miguel Rico claims Barcelona ‘like’ the Tottenham player, which is quite a surprising claim.

The Catalan club are looking for a backup for Jordi Alba in the left-back position, and Rico’s report states Sessegnon’s profile fits the need of Barca’s technical leaders. He can also operate as a left winger.

Quique Setién’s side, however, will face a ‘problem’ signing the former Fulham man.

According to the report, the La Liga winners need to find a solution [another club] for Junior Firpo, before making any approach for Mourinho’s man.

Sessegnon has a contract with the Premier League side until 2025.
