Everton reportedly want the brother of Fulham wonderkid

Everton director of football Steve Walsh has reportedly kept tabs on Fulham defender Ryan Sessegnon, though the club are set to be more keen on his twin brother, Steven – as reported by the Liverpool Echo.

Steven Sessegnon is a 16-year-old versatile right back who can also play at centre-half or defensive midfield.

He is currently plying his trade for Fulham’s under 23’s and Everton are looking to sign him within their youth ranks.

Steven’s brother Ryan is a member of the Cottagers’ first team and if the Toffees wish to sign the more established sibling, they will have to fend off competition from a number of clubs including Liverpool.

However, Everton are said to be more intent on signing Steven. A move to Ronald Koeman’s club will definitely be a good move for him as it will allow him to be part of an academy which has been producing quality players recently.

By moving, he will also be moving to a club which has been giving youth players first team opportunities recently.
