Tottenham Hotspur are apparently poised to beat several top clubs to acquiring the signing of Fulham wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon.
Sessegnon has been an instrumental player for Fulham this season in marauding down the left-hand side, scoring five and assisting three in 24 Championship appearances.
The Daily Mail now report the 17-year-old is expected to join Spurs, despite ample interest.
Spurs would prefer to wait until the summer for a deal, the Daily Mail adds, but may be prompted to rush such a transfer, for fear of a rival taking imminent action.

Fulham are also likely to retain the services of their talisman until then, as they are mired in mid-table obscurity and six points off of the playoff spot.
Spurs will be eager to win the race for Sessegnon in an effort to replace Danny Rose who has been widely tipped to leave.
