Despite reports of interest dwindling following the success of Andrew Robertson, Ryan Sessegnon should still be a priority target for Liverpool.
The Reds’ pursuit of Sessegnon was initially reported at the start of the 2016/17 campaign, with the teenager claimed to be Jurgen Klopp‘s primary target at left-back months later.
Sessegnon ultimately signed his first professional contract with Fulham last summer, ending speculation of a move to the Premier League.
With Robertson settling into the role of first-choice left-back under Klopp, Liverpool have faded into the periphery while Tottenham and Man United continue to be touted with moves for the 17-year-old.
But though the Scot has seemingly nailed down his place for the long term, Sessegnon should still be high on Klopp’s list of targets ahead of the summer window.
