With his contract set to expire next summer, Sessegnon has given Fulham an opportunity to turn a profit after explaining he wants to move to north London and work under Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino.
It's understood the Argentine boss would like to complete a move for the 19-year-old winger before Spurs players report to preseason training on July 8.
Tottenham, however, will have to meet Fulham's hefty demands to sign the England under-21 international. Fulham have placed a £45-million price tag on Sessegnon, who has also attracted interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.
Fulham's valuation is well above the £25 million that Tottenham are willing to pay, according to Hytner. But the Cottagers may be forced to reduce their asking price to avoid letting Sessegnon leave on a free transfer if he enters the season without a new contract.
Sessegnon appeared in 35 matches during the 2018-19 campaign for a Fulham side that was relegated back to the Championship after one season in the Premier League.
