Chelsea target Sesko as striker solution

A young Slovenian striker is making waves in Germany. Benjamin Sesko, of RB Leipzig, is considered a top offensive talent, and Europe’s elite clubs are taking notice.

Even before joining Leipzig last year, Sesko was chased by giants like Manchester United and AC Milan.

His impressive debut season, with 14 goals already, has only fueled the fire. Arsenal, Chelsea, and even Newcastle are reportedly interested, though the Magpies depend on Callum Wilson’s potential exit.

Leipzig secured Sesko with a €50 million release clause, a price tag that could tempt several clubs. With Bayern Munich seen as vulnerable, Leipzig hopes to challenge for the Bundesliga title, but keeping Sesko is crucial.

While Leipzig wants him to stay and develop, the player ultimately holds the cards due to the release clause.

Reports suggest Chelsea has already made an offer, viewing Sesko as a more cost-effective option compared to Napoli’s €130 million attacker, Victor Osimhen.
