West Ham United are desperate for a new leftback next season and rivals Tottenham Hotspur could have the solution.
According to The Telegraph Tottenham are ready to make Sessegnon available for loan next season.
And the timing could be perfect for West Ham who are looking to offload woeful leftback duo Aaron Cresswell and Arthur Masuaku (Claret & Hugh).
Tottenham to make Sessegnon available for loan – report
The Telegraph claims Tottenham may be forced to find a loan move for Sessegnon this summer amid fears the youngster’s development is stalling under Jose Mourinho.
Sessegnon signed for Spurs for £25 million from Fulham last summer. But he has not played a single minute for Tottenham since the Premier League’s restart.
And was left out of the 20-man squad that faced Everton on Monday night.
West Ham boss David Moyes meanwhile has seen enough of Cresswell and Masuaku.
And he will put both on the transfer list with any reasonable offers set to be accepted according to West Ham insiders Claret & Hugh.
Perfect timing for West Ham
Moyes wants to rebuild West Ham around young, athletic players hungry to prove themselves in the Premier League.
The former Everton academy player could end up costing West Ham just £1.5 million is Wigan are relegated.
Sessegnon is another who ticks all the boxes for Moyes’s vision.
He was one of the stars of the Championship before his move to Spurs.
Ideal for all parties but will Spurs do business with Hammers?
West Ham have made no secret of the fact they have been hit hard by global health crisis.
So a loan – possibly with an option to buy built in – would be ideal for West Ham, Tottenham and Sessegnon.
Whether Spurs will loan a player to West Ham remains to be seen.
There is no love lost between the two clubs, who rarely do business with one another.
And relations between the two boardrooms are strained too.
