Transfer gossip: Echo say Liverpool have ended Sessegnon pursuit

Some of the recent transfer speculation involving Fulham.

Liverpool have ended their interest in Ryan Sessegnon and believe the Fulham youngster will join Tottenham, according to the Liverpool Echo.

Spurs have long been interested in the Whites’ teenage left-back, who has yet to sign a professional contract at Craven Cottage.

Arsenal have shown an interest as well, while the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton have also been linked with Sessegnon.

The Echo believe Liverpool doubted Sessegnon’s commitment to joining them amid reports Spurs are close to agreeing a deal to sign him.

Whites want Fletcher, Mirror say

Fulham are among clubs interested in West Ham youngster Ashley Fletcher, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Mirror say Huddersfield are keen to sign Fletcher, 21, on a season-long loan following the Yorkshire club’s promotion to the top flight.

The newspaper say Fulham, Middlesbrough and Norwich are also looking to bring in the forward for next season.

Cairney’s future

Newcastle continue to be linked with Fulham playmaker Tom Cairney.

The Daily Telegraph say the promoted Magpies are set to make an approach following the Whites’ play-off defeat against Reading.

They were linked with Cairney during the January transfer window and are apparently undeterred by reports Fulham want £20m for the 26-year-old.

The Telegraph suggest Newcastle are likely to offer £12m and that Cairney may well be keen to make the move now Fulham’s hopes of a return to the Premier League have been ended.

The Northern Echo believe Newcastle will make an approach for Cairney and that there is also interest from West Ham and Southampton.
