SLAVISA Jokanovic has urged Fulham owner Shahid Khan to keep hold of teenage sensation Ryan Sessegnon and strengthen his squad for a new year promotion push.

Sessegnon became one of the youngest scorers in FA Cup history – at 16 years and 235 days – with the winner in Fulham’s 2-1 third round success at Cardiff.

The England Under-17 international has been linked to the Premier League’s big guns, with Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham all reportedly showing interest in the Wandsworth-born product.

“He’s very good for the project of this football club, he’s one of the most talented teenagers in England,” manager Jokanovic said.

“He’s a very intelligent kid, he’s working very hard and has to keep going.”

Jokanovic wants Florida-based Khan, owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL team, to invest in the transfer window and push Fulham towards the Championship play-offs.
