Comparisons to Marcus Rashford, Harry Kane 'crazy' - Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon

With Mohamed Salah a strong favourite for the PFA Player of the Year, the FC crew direct their attention to the Young Player of the Year award.
Fulham starlet Ryan Sessegnon says he's dreaming of playing in the Premier League and following in the footsteps of Spurs duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli.

Fulham star Ryan Sessegnon has said it is "crazy" to be nominated for the Professional Footballers' Association Young Player of the Year award with players including Manchester United's Marcus Rashford and Tottenham's Harry Kane.

Sessegnon, 17, has scored 14 goals to help Fulham reach third place in the Championship, with automatic promotion to the Premier League still a possibility.

He is the first player from outside the top division to be on the shortlist for the Young Player award, having been named Young Player of the Season at the English Football League awards over the weekend -- one of five awards he won.

Ryan Sessegnon has scored 14 goals for Fulham this season.

Speaking about the PFA shortlist, which also includes Manchester City's Leroy Sane, Ederson and Raheem Sterling, he said: "It is crazy to be on a shortlist with those players, but I'm just happy to be in and around those types of players.

"I just need to keep improving. It is credit to the team really, the way we play. I know the club very well and I feel very comfortable playing for the club."

Sessegnon has been linked with clubs including Spurs and Manchester United, but said his aim remained securing top-flight football with Fulham.

"I would love it to be with Fulham in the Premier League," he told Sky Sports.

"I have been at the club since the age of eight. It has been a dream of mine to play in the Premier League with Fulham.

"We are so very close -- I just want to get over the line now. We have played an attractive brand of football, and it has helped me in the way I like to play."
