Liverpool dream target ready to snub Man United to work under Jurgen Klopp

Fulham wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon is reportedly pushing for a move to Liverpool in the summer transfer window.

Sessegnon, 17, is having a sensational season in the Championship with Fulham and is the club’s top goalscorer after netting on 14 occasions for the Cottagers this term.

The highly-rated teenager signed his first professional contract at Craven Cottage last June and turned down big offers from the Premier League to leave Fulham ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.

According to The Daily Express, Sessegnon has decided he wants to join Liverpool in the summer despite strong interest from Manchester United and Manchester City.

It’s claimed the youngster is desperate to join Liverpool to work under Jurgen Klopp. Sessegnon has supported the Reds since childhood.

Sessegnon admitted last month that the recent transfer rumours are flattering but insisted that he’s fully focused on getting Fulham promoted from the Championship.

He said: ‘It was flattering to be linked with other clubs but my main focus was on Fulham. My aim has always been to try and help the club get back into the Premier League. ‘I didn’t pay too much attention to it. I’m always focused on my job at Fulham.

‘As you can see in every league game I’ve started, each game I try to be better than the last. ‘I’m enjoying having this good season. That is down to the game time I’m getting.’
