Manchester United are clear to sign Fulham wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon in the January transfer window, according to reports.

Sessegnon, 17, who broke into Fulham’s first-team last season, has scored 11 goals in 53 appearances for the Cottagers, and is widely regarded as one of the most exciting young talents in English football.

A number of Premier League clubs are keeping close tabs on Sessegnon, with Manchester United and Tottenham understood to be expressing a strong interest in the England Under-19 left-back.

The Sun suggest Fulham have opened the door for Sessegnon to leave Craven Cottage in January as they hunt for a replacement for the remainder of the 2017/18 campaign.

Sessegnon became the youngest player ever to score in a Championship match last year and is the first 17-year-old to score a hat-trick in league football since Dele Alli.

With Fulham resigned to losing Sessegnon, United may be tempted to move for the youngster over the £50million-rated Danny Rose.

The teenager’s contract at Fulham, which he agreed in June, includes no buyout clause and expires in the summer of 2020.
