Mauricio Pochettino has a way of developing youngsters and taking them to the next level of their careers, which could be a major reason in why Sessegnon will make the switch to White Hart Lane.
Despite Fulham valuing their star at between £15-£20 million, Tottenham are willing to pay a reported £12m for their man.
Spurs have begun to look for a potential summer recruits, with Sessegnon certainly fitting the mould of the type of player that Pochettino looks for.
The left-back, who broke into the Fulham first-team side at the beginning of season, managed to make 30 appearances across all competitions, contributing with seven goals.
Sessegnon’s impressive campaign for the Cottagers, in which he helped them to a play-off spot, saw him also be rewarded with a place in the PFA Championship Team of the Year.
