Tottenham whiz Ryan Sessegnon admits he's drawing inspiration from Gareth Bale.

Sessegnon admired and modelled his game on the Welshman, who started his career as a left wing back.

"He was just so energetic,' says Sessegnon to the Daily Mail. "Powerful, pacy. I remember the Champions League game for Spurs against Inter Milan.

"I always watched those video clips and tried to emulate my game on what he was doing. If I add more goals and assists to my game, it's going to keep me in the team."

Sessegnon has kicked off the season impressively.

He added, "I arrived in good shape. I did a lot of work before pre-season. It was more injury prevention, being able to cope with the demands of pre-season, which I knew was going to be tough, and getting a bit bigger in gym, building my legs, and stamina-wise doing a lot of runs."
