After becoming a member of from Fulham final summer season for £25million, the England youth intentional is presently on mortgage with Hoffenheim as a way to get some precious minutes within the tank.
The 20-year-old’s time with the Cottagers showcased his excessive versatility and he finally made the transition from a left-back to a midfielder. In 2017/18, while being slowly built-in additional up the pitch, Sessegnon tallied a whopping 15 targets and 6 assists within the Championship (through Transfermarkt).
