Chelsea prioritising Benjamin Sesko move, contact entourage

Chelsea have reportedly established contact to sign RB Leipzig sensation Benjamin Sesko ahead of next season.

According to a report from Foot Mercato, Slovenian international Benjamin Sesko is a priority target for Chelsea heading into the upcoming transfer window. They have been working hard to land the RB Leipzig forward at the club and have already established contact with his entourage.

Sesko made a name for himself at Red Bull Salzburg before making a move to sister club RB Leipzig last summer. Since joining the Bundesliga outfit, he has contributed towards 20 goals (18 goals, 2 assists) in just over 2000 minutes of first-team action.

His impressive rise has put him on the radar of multiple top clubs, and Chelsea are the ones who are pushing hard to bring him to Stamford Bridge. The West London club parted ways with Mauricio Pochettino at the end of the season and replaced him with Enzo Maresca.

Pochettino and the London club were not on the same page. As a result, they decided to part ways. Meanwhile, the Italian manager’s work at Leicester is one of the major reasons why the Blues decided to have him on their bench. He will have a young squad full of talent at his disposal and the club are already at work to further bolster it.

Chelsea pushing hard for Sesko’s services

Chelsea struggled in front of the goal at times last season, and the absence of top-quality number nine was felt. And, in order to ensure they have enough firepower, they have made Sesko their top priority for the summer. They have put their foot on the accelerator to sign the Slovenian international in the upcoming window.

The Blues have already contacted his agents regarding a potential move to Stamford Bridge. Both parties have already held initial talks about the transfer, and the Blues seem quite confident about it. They feel Sesko could be a great long-term acquisition and they do not want to miss out on him.

The owners are ready to back Maresca during the window and reports have already suggested that they are considering triggering his release clause worth £56 million. With his contract running until the summer of 2028, that might be the only way to sign him this summer.
