Championship raised

It’s a massive positive that Sessegnon has started his professional career in the Championship. West Ham like to buy from the Championship and there are many first teamers that originated from the second-tier. Michail Antonio, Aaron Cresswell and Darren Randolph are just three examples of these.

Problems

Unfortunately, it isn’t just the West Ham scouts that will know about the youngster. Sessegnon is currently being watched by most teams in the league including the likes of Liverpool. He is destined for a move to the Premier League however it just depends on if he chooses the clubs status over first team football.

Personally, I think that Sessegnon would be a great signing for the Hammers and he would definitely encourage young English players to put the effort in.
