Jamie Carragher has revealed the reason Liverpool decided against signing Ryan Sessegnon before his move to Tottenham.

After months of speculation surrounding his future at Fulham, Sessegnon completed a £25m move to Spurs on transfer deadline day.

The 19-year-old has signed a five-year contract in north London, while Tottenham have the option to extend it by a further 12 months.

Manchester United and Liverpool were linked at various points over the last year or so and Carragher has claimed that the Reds watched Sessegnon.

However, they viewed him as a prospect and not someone who could have an immediate impact on the first team.

Carragher wrote in his column for the Daily Telegraph: “I know Liverpool watched Ryan Sessegnon, and saw another player for the future rather than someone who could go straight into the team at left-back.”

Jurgen Klopp added youngsters Sepp van den Berg and Harvey Elliott and veteran goalkeeper Adrian to his Liverpool ranks this summer.
