Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic believes that youngster Ryan Sessegnon is playing well enough to be selected for the England squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia according to Get West London.

The 17-year-old Roehampton born winger has dazzled on the senior stage since making his first team debut for Fulham at the start of last season.

Sessegnon’s rapid rise to stardom has seen his valuation rocket and Fulham are now believed to rate the youngster somewhere between £35-£50 million.

A number of English Premier League clubs are said to be looking to sign the player including heavyweights Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Sessegnon has netted 13 goals in 37 appearances for The Whites so far this season and with the winger in the form of his life, manager Jokanovic has admitted that he would not be surprised to see the player handed a full England call-up for this summer’s FIFA World Cup by Gareth Southgate.

The former Fulham academy graduate made his Fulham debut in an EFL Cup tie against Leyton Orient in August 2016. Sessegnon has since racked up 67 appearances for his club and has scored 20 goals. He was named in the PFA Championship Team of the Season last term while he was a UEFA European Under-19 Championship winner with England in the summer.
