Liverpool fans have taken to social media to urge their club to sign 17-year-old wonder kid Ryan Sessegnon. The Fulham starlet has shot to acclaim with his performances this season, his 15 league goals helped guide his side to a third-place finish.
Sessegnon carried his form over into the playoffs as he provided a goal and an assist in the 2-0 home victory over Derby. That result means Sessegnon’s side will go on to face Aston Villa in the final with a Premier League place up for grabs.
The young English star has attracted interest from Tottenham, Manchester City, Manchester United and PSG to name a few. Liverpool fans are hopeful that Jurgen Klopp’s impressive reputation for developing young talent will be enough to convince Sessegnon to choose their club over their rivals.
Liverpool are still seeking an ideal replacement for Philippe Coutinho who departed for Barcelona last season. They aren’t short of attacking talent in their ranks already though, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah have a combined 90 goals in all competitions this year.
Here’s what the Liverpool faithful had to say about a move for Sessegnon:

Would do anything to see Oblak, Lascelles, Ndidi, Fekir, Sessegnon and a good backup ST to Liverpool this summer— Declan (@decZ109) May 7, 2018
Sessegnon is under contract with Fulham until 2020 so they are likely to demand a huge fee with some reports even suggesting they could hold out for as much as £100m.
