While Pep Guardiola is making it rain, the rest of the Premier League is yet to make a big move. Brighton and Hove Albion, Newcastle United, and Huddersfield will join the part next season, but Liverpool have not yet made any moves to ensure that a top four place is retained with a potential challenge for honours to be thrown into the mix.

Ryan Sessegnon was believed to be part of the plan, but Tottenham Hotspur "have emerged as favourites" for the young left back according to Paul Joyce of the Times. Apart from mentioning that Spurs have Danny Rose and Ben Davies as left back options, nothing else was mentioned in the brief report.

Mauricio Pochettino's track record of giving young English players a real chance of playing and developing at a top Premier League club could be as important a factor as remaining in London. Sessegnon could be loaned back to Fulham for a season, brought in to join Spurs' first-team squad, or play in a different position entirely.

It's still early in the transfer window, but Sessgnon could join Christian Pulisic and Julian Brandt (to be confirmed) as young players that have proved to be elusive in recent transfer windows.
