According to the Telegraph, Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is prepared to loan out Ryan Sessegnon before next month’s transfer deadline. And this represents West Ham with an ideal opportunity to strengthen their left wing-back department.
The 20-year-old, who earns £55,000 per week at Spurs according to Football League Fan Club, can play left-back, left midfield or left wing. And he would be a truly excellent loan addition for the Hammers.
With our new-found 5-4-1 or 3-4-3 system, David Moyes has found a way to play Arthur Masuaku and Aaron Cresswell together.
And as such, both players seem to be far more useful than they are when playing without the other.
The problem is that Cresswell, 30, has no pace and Masuaku, 26, is incredibly inconsistent.
Arthur has looked very good over the past two games, but it would surprise nobody if he failed to deliver over the course of the next few outings.
So upgrading in that particular department will be key. David Moyes has minimal funds to spend, however. So a loan deal could be ideal for now.
And Tottenham ace Ryan Sessegnon fits the bill perfectly. Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is allegedly ready to let the 20-year-old leave the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on loan (Telegraph). And West Ham cannot afford to miss out on the former Fulham man.
He would also give us another naturally left-footed option in the left wing position.
Things haven’t quite worked out for the 20-year-old since he made his £25 million move to Spurs from Fulham last summer.
And a loan move away from Tottenham might be just what he needs to breath fire back into his career.
He really is a special talent, and a temporary move to West Ham may prove appealing to him, considering the fact that he wouldn’t have to move from where he is currently living.
In full flow, the Tottenham ace is wonderfully exciting to watch. And he could be a great asset for us this season. It really is a no-brainer for David Moyes.
Chances like this don’t come around too often and West Ham must be ready to act.
