Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham ‘crazy’ about signing Benjamin Sesko

Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly crazy about signing 20-year-old RB Leipzig prospect Benjamin Sesko.

According to a report by Spanish outlet AS, Benjamin Sesko is gaining popularity in the market heading into the summer transfer window. A move to the Premier League might be on the cards, with Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur ‘crazy’ about securing the services of the 20-year-old RB Leipzig attacker.

Benjamin Sesko and a topsy-turvy ride at RB Leipzig this season

Benjamin Sesko joined RB Leipzig from sister club Red Bull Salzburg last summer in a deal worth €24 million. The Slovenian international had to bide his time before becoming a regular for the Bundesliga club and cut a frustrated figure in the first half of the 2023/24 season.

However, he gradually grew in stature and became a pivotal figure for RB Leipzig in the final months of the 2023/24 campaign. The 20-year-old prospect ended the season with a decent tally of 18 goals and two assists in only 2,057 minutes of game time across 42 appearances in all competitions. Meanwhile, Sesko’s progress has not gone unnoticed, alerting top clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur.

A man in demand

Arsenal will delve into the market for a striker in the summer transfer window due to Gabriel Jesus’s unproductive 2023/24 campaign. In addition, Eddie Nketiah faces an uncertain future at the Emirates and will likely embark on a new adventure in the coming weeks. Sesko has thus emerged as a viable target for Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Chelsea’s interest in Benjamin Sesko is understandable. The Blues have lacked a reliable striker for a few seasons, with Tammy Abraham being their last dependable centre-forward. So, it behoves Chelsea to invest in a prolific striker, with the RB Leipzig prospect emerging as a viable target.

As for Tottenham, the North London club did not sign a direct replacement for Harry Kane last summer. So, they will enter the market for a productive striker, bringing Sesko into the picture. Meanwhile, the report has claimed that Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham are ‘crazy’ about securing the services of the 20-year-old Slovenian prospect.

RB Leipzig will likely demand a premium to part ways with Sesko in the summer transfer window. So, it will be interesting to see where he plies his trade in the 2023/24 season amid widespread interest in his services.
