Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool need to wait till next summer for Benjamin Sesko

Premier League giants Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool will have to wait until the summer of 2025 to sign Benjamin Sesko.

According to Fabrízio Romano in his Daily Briefing, Benjamin Sesko is expected to continue at RB Leipzig for another season. The Slovenian international is on the wishlist of Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool heading into the summer. Despite all the interest in his services, the English clubs will have to wait until next summer to sign him.

After making a name for himself at Red Bull Salzburg, Sesko made the move to Leipzig last summer. In his debut season in Germany, the 21-year-old striker scored 18 goals and even had two assists in just over 2000 minutes of first-team football.

Arsenal, United & Liverpool keen on Sesko

On the back of his impressive performances at the German club, there is a lot of interest in him. Arsenal, United and Liverpool are all ready to prise him away from Leipzig. The Gunners want to bring in a top-quality number nine in the summer as Mikel Arteta looks to add more firepower to his attack.

He is not satisfied with Gabriel Jesus’ performances up top and wants to have someone who can guarantee goals, Sesko could be an ideal signing for them. Meanwhile, United are looking for a forward who can share the goal-scoring burden with Rasmus Hojlund. Sesko could be a great fit as he could help them in the short as well as long term.

Liverpool are also keen on reinforcing their attack ahead of next season. They want someone who can compete with Darwin Nunez for a place in the starting XI and Sesko seems to fit the bill. While all three clubs are keen on his signature, they have to wait until 2025 to sign him.

Sesko to continue at Leipzig

Sesko has already penned down a new deal at the club. He now has a contract that runs until the summer of 2029. While the previous deal had a €65 million release, there might not be a clause in the new one.

However, according to Romano, Leipzig have promised the Slovenian international that they will let him leave next summer. The player is currently focused on giving his best at the Euro, he then wants to compete in Germany for another year before making the move to the Premier League.
