Deal Close? Boss responds to transfer rumours about 'excellent' £15m sensation. Liverpool favourites to sign

Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic has responded to transfer rumours linking one of his most coveted player with a move to Liverpool.

Last month, The Mirror claimed that Liverpool were tracking Fulham sensation Ryan Sessegnon, and according to the Express this week:

"Liverpool are set to beat Chelsea, Arsenal and Man City to signing of Fulham wonderkid Ryan Sessegnon this summer".

When asked on Wednesday about the transfer speculation, Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic urged the 16-year old to continue his development at Craven Cottage:

"The best thing is for [Sessegnon] to stay with us, keep learning, and keep preparing for a more important step.If he keeps doing what he's doing, he will be at the highest level. He should just enjoy his first days as a professional at this level".

Jokanovic is obviously right, but his words will probably fall on deaf ears. Like so many other young players, £15m-rated Sessegnon probably has pound signs in his eyes, and is probably already salivating over the prospect of buying a ridiculously expensive car, and moving into a stupidly big (and garishly furnished) mansion (just like Raheem Sterling did at LFC).

There's (arguably) no developmental reason for a 16-year old to leave when he's playing regular Championship football, but if Sessegnon follows the money to Liverpool (or some other top Premier League side) it'll be his funeral.
