Tottenham have opened talks with Ryan Sessegnon over a new contract, Football Insider understands. The 21-year-old has finally started to live up to his billing since the turn of the year and justify the £25million Spurs spent on him in 2019. A Spurs source has told Football Insider that Antonio Conte has made it clear to the club hierarchy he believes Sessegnon is a ”huge” talent who can develop into a bona fide Premier League star.
Discussions are underway on extending the left-sided star’s deal beyond it’s current expiration in the summer of 2025. He has become Spurs’ first choice left wing-back in recent months during an impressive run of performances interrupted only by a hamstring injury that sidelined him for a month. Across all competitions this season, Sessegnon has made 17 appearances.
