Liverpool will look to negotiate a deal for Sessegnon as a replacement for Alberto Moreno, according to The Liverpool ECHO.

Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon has enjoyed a remarkable breakthrough season.

Left-back is the area where the German manager is eager to strengthen the most and the club feel they can finally solve the problem area - where midfielder James Milner has filled in this season - with a £15m deal for Sessegnon.

The English Under-19 global, though, has been profusely linked with Liverpool, who are tipped to land the player, despite reports of Reds already securing a left-back signing for the summer, with a deal agreed to add Hull star Andrew Robertson to the squad.

Moreno is likely to leave this summer after a season spent on the bench, with few opportunities to make an impact given the reliability of James Milner as a makeshift fullback.

We've done a really good job of that here since we've been playing together. "I think we did an all around good job tonight". The best-of-seven series is now tied up at two. "So that was to be expected", said Senators coach Guy Boucher.

The Reds have also been given hope after Sessegnon was reported to have rejected professional terms with the Cottagers, who lost to Reading in Championship playoffs this past Tuesday.

It's unlikely that Liverpool will be the only Premier League club with the mind to take Sessegnon on. The promise of Premier League football over another season in the Championship could prove persuasive when Liverpool comes calling.

There are yet to be any concrete reports regarding Liverpool's interest in signing an experienced full-back this summer wich could indicate the Jürgen Klopp will use Milner as his go-to man again next season.

Liverpool are increasingly confident of securing the £15 million signing of Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon despite Arsenal and Manchester City also holding an interest in the defender.

But the teenager is also aware of the dangers of making a move too early in his career, and seeing his development stall by a lack of regular first team football.
