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.

But as the season draws…
