Amid the latest news that Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon has allegedly chosen to go to Tottenham in the summer rather than Manchester United or Liverpool, a new club is said to be interested in the 17-year-old’s services: Paris Saint-Germain.

Freshly knocked out of the Champions League, the post-mortem appears to have begun, with the Ligue 1 leaders focusing on improving the sides of their defence, unhappy with the talent at their disposal.

According to L’Equipe, Yuri Berchiche showed too many frailties against Real Madrid, while Layvin Kurzawa has already decided to leave this summer, bored of France, and Paris Saint-Germain are on the same wavelength.

That means a lot of money will need to be spent in that department, and as Manchester City showed last year, full-backs don’t come cheap.

Among their targets are the aforementioned Sessegnon, while Alex Sandro is also a possibility, and he would fit in well with the Brazilian contingent already present at the club.

While the youngster is most likely to continue his development in England, if push came to shove and money ended up being a key factor in his decision, Paris Saint-Germain would have the advantage over Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham.

A lot will also depend on how much the Cottagers end up asking for their young prodigy, with recent reports labelling him a ‘£50m-rated wonderkid’.

That’s a lot of money, especially for Spurs.
