    Danish winger/striker for FC Copenhagen.

    Linked by SSN. The article is mainly about Spurs liking him but says we and a couple of others are interested.

    22 goals in 39 games and top scorer in Danish league.

    Let the puns commence...

    Don't think we really stand a chance as every half decent club in Europe will be after him and Andreas Skov-Olsen (15 goals in 23 games from right wing) in the summer and I can't see the Pozzos getting involved in a bidding war. Would love to be wrong though as he's got an absolutely wicked left foot.

    Bidding war?! The record sale by a Danish club was £8.8mil (Emre Mor to Dortmund).

    Palace also paid £8.1mil for Sørloth last year (who had also been scoring more than a goal a game in the Danish league at the time).

    It's still the kind of money that the Pozzos are hesitant to spend, but the fee won't be anything out of our reach should he be on our radar.

    However, considering how much of a flop Sørloth has been at Palace, this fella will no doubt be a risk. Didn't even make the final Danish World Cup squad in the summer either, despite them being pretty poor offensively. It'd be good to have a right winger who is more of a goal threat than Hughes (low bar I know), and this guy clearly has a good left peg, but I haven't seen anything to suggest he'd go and command a starting spot at a more elite club; he seems a bit like a clumsier, left-footed Sigurdsson.

    Bidding war was perhaps the wrong wording. There will be plenty of clubs in for him, so his agent will be able to play clubs off against each other to get the best wages for the player. We rarely spend big on wages so doubt we'll be able to match the offers that the likes of Spurs and the inevitable Roma and Sevillas will be able to offer

    He's a Dane so maybe he likes rainy weather and soggy fish and beer. England might be more appealing.

    I know he’ll have bigger suitors but he’s not really lit up the PL as expected so maybe interest has dropped, I’d like to see us show interest in Sessegnon when Fulham go down. We’d obviously have to break our transfer record and we may not have the money - but he would fit into our squad nicely.

    After Ken Sema I think we should leave the Scandinavian leagues well alone...

    He's scoring pretty highly in this - whilst playing for a shocking team (as is our own Lukebakio and Juan Hernandez). A top 6 club will be all over him still.

    Oh I know.

    I just mean that he’s not played regularly and hasn’t hit the heights expected. He’s still going to cost north of £30m I’d expect which would rule us out anyway. Anything below that and I’d be keen to throw our hat in the ring if we could afford it, and given the variety of positions he can play down the left, especially with Pereyra likely off and Holebas another year older.

    Sessegnon sounds like a fancy wine.

    Skov sounds like a weak, fizzy beer, advertised by Hagar the Horrible.

    Sessegnon seems to have dealt with the hullabaloo surrounding himself & the chaos reigning over Fulham pretty well.

    He seems a grounded young man & I hope he does hit his potential.

    Not sure he lines up with the Pozzo criteria, though.

    Gino finds value in giving a Prem stage to lesser known young ‘uns with potential (with Richie as the classic example).

    I could Football Idiot #1, aka Woodward at Man U, dribbling at the thought of paying £50m for him.

    Sema is a frustrating player. He shows glimpses of greatness overshadowed by long periods of mediocrity. There's a player in there, but he needs regular game time under a manager who will look to develop his game sense.

    Yes, though that game time may have to be in the Championship at this rate.

    I don’t doubt that he has made the team because Javi thinks he can offer something. I wouldn’t write off him doing better next season and that Javi can improve him.
  16. Burnsy

    Burnsy Squad Player

    I’m of the mind that Sema is just not PL quality. He looks like he would suit a top-half Championship team really. I thought he was a pacy, powerful winger but he doesn’t seem to be either of those things from what I’ve seen.
  17. PowerJugs

    PowerJugs Doyley Fanatic

    He's pacey and agile without the level of game sense needed at this level. He's still fairly young and can improve if given the right opportunity and coaching. Look at Deulofeu; no-one would have said he'd make a suitable conversion from winger to striker but he's doing it because he's given the game time to learn from and a level of coaching behind the scenes to practise it.
  18. Burnsy

    Burnsy Squad Player

    Game of opinions really.

    His goals were good but Cardiff were so poor defensively. Take that game in isolation and I’m really not sure Deulofeu is making a suitable conversion.

    I still think given their form, I’d rather have Del out wide with Gray up front and Hughes/Pereyra dropped for a bit. But I guess this is a discussion for another thread.

    I think you’re giving him way too much credit to call his poorer spells mediocre. Granted, he’s shown a few flashes of quality, but beyond that, he’s barely looked like a footballer, let alone a mediocre one.

    Happy to give him time, as he has the physical tools, but on a technical level, it looks a bit of a stretch at this point to imagine he’s going to be anything more than a clumsy work-horse.

    Loan him out to a bottom half side in the Bundesliga. They develop players well over there. In the Championship he might spend more time learning how to fight off bruising defenders than on his game sense.

    Sounds like the standard profile Gino gives to the headhunters.

    If he's half the player Big Ken is, then it's a yes from me.

    This may be in jest but Big Ken has more assists this season than Bobby P.

    Glimpses of greatness, I must of missed that bit, I have never seen the players completely ignore another player and avoid passing to him at all costs as much as they do to Sema since the days of Dominic Blizzard!

    What do you call a security agent on the Pozzos' payroll with a gaffer-taped football player in the boot of their car?

    The good old days :cool: almost forgotten about our Dom. I do have a vague recollection of going to Ayresome Park and seeing Jason Solomon playing in the engine room. A real masterclass
