The Red Devils are long-term admirers of the English starlet are now believed to front-runners for to secure the players signature amid interest from host of top European clubs.

Despite Fulham getting relegated from the Premier League, Sessegnon enjoyed an okay season, scoring two goals and registering six assists in 35 matches. Hailed as one of England's finest upcoming talents, the 18-year-old is reportedly on the radar of the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, PSG, Juventus and RB Leipzig.

At the moment, the Fulham winger is stalling on signing a new contract despite having just a year left on his current deal.
