Crystal Palace keen on Ryan Sessegnon

Crystal Palace are keen to sign free agent Ryan Sessegnon after his release from Tottenham, although his fitness issues could prove troublesome. 

According to The Sun, Crystal Palace are in the hunt for Ryan Sessegnon, with the 24-year-old ex-Tottenham ace available on a free transfer. The injury-prone wide man could be a shrewd signing, although Palace and other interested parties could dig for more information on his fitness before approaching. 

Crystal Palace vying for Ryan Sessegnon

Tottenham paid a whopping £25 million for Ryan Sessegnon in 2019, with the deal carrying add-ons that could have seen the fee rise to £30 million. The left-back’s stocks were tremendously high, so even Spurs did not hesitate to spend that much on a then-19-year-old, although things have gone downhill for him since. 

Tottenham decided to let him leave back in May, and the 24-year-old has since left the club upon the expiry of his five-year deal that he signed when joining from Fulham. In this period, Sessegnon only played 57 times for Spurs in all competitions and only once in the whole of last season.

Sessegnon was plagued by serious hamstring issues last term, and clubs will ask questions about his fitness before making a move. Crystal Palace are the latest side to express an interest in signing the 24-year-old ex-Tottenham ace, and his low-cost acquisition could be a big reason why they might be keen. 

Sessegnon’s versatility on the left wing can be a big factor for them to consider, especially as the 24-year-old can add quality depth to the bench. He’s definitely not a first-choice option for Palace, who might end up losing both Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze from their attacking setup. 

Clubs could seek fitness information on Sessegnon

West Ham are also interested in signing Sessegnon, with Julen Lopetegui keen to add him as a squad option for the new season. Fulham are also considering re-signing the wide man, and Marco Silva might also look to add him to his exciting squad. 

These clubs are likely to take a closer look at his fitness updates, as they might not want to take a risk on the ex-Tottenham star. Hence, Sessegnon must use this summer well and improve on his fitness to gain the confidence of interested sides, as he aims to stay in the Premier League and get back on track with his career.
