Juventus are reportedly keeping a close eye on many wingers across the Europe.
According to the football transfer rumours in Italian media, Juventus are linked with a move for Fulham winger Ryan Sessegnon.
The 18-year-old England international has one year left on his current contract which expires in 2020.
Sessegnon made 117 appearances across all competitions for Fulham FC, scoring 25 goals and supplying 18 assists in return.
The 18-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England.
Ryan Sessegnon has represented England at Under-16, Under-17, Under-19 and Under-21 level, winning 38 caps and scoring 7 goals.
Juventus have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
The report claims that Juventus have extensively scouted Ryan Sessegnon and are considering a move for the winger.
The winger can also play as a full-back, offering Juventus manager a different option should he change his formation.
According to Football Italia (via The Express), “Juve are ‘ready to do battle’ with Tottenham Hotspur, who are considered the favourites to sign the 18-year-old. The newspaper adds Fulham want ‘around £40m (€46m) for the left-sider, who scored 16 goals in the English second tier last season. He has managed just two strikes for the Cottagers this term as they were relegated from the Premier League but has provided six assists.”

It would take a huge offer from Juventus to prise the 18-year-old winger from Fulham.
Nevertheless, Sessegnon stands as an excellent option for Juventus.
If Ryan Sessegnon turns out to be a star player like many expect, it could be one of the club’s smartest transfers.
