Sessegnon became the first 16-year-old player to clinch a goal to his name in the history of English football, when he scored against Cardiff in the Championship.

And since scoring his first goal, he has been under the radar of top-flight Premier League clubs – which includes the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

kloppSources confirm that Jurgen Klopp is highly interested in the player and he had sent scouts to observe him in all their eight Championship games so far.

Inspite of being a left-back, Sessegnon has the ability to work wonders, up in the wing and this distinguishing factor is believed to have drawn interests from several top-flight Premier League clubs.
