Transfer Gossip: Benjamin Sesko Open to Premier League Move Amid Arsenal, Man Utd, and Chelsea Interest

RB Leipzig Star Attracts Major Attention After Impressive Bundesliga Season

RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko has expressed his openness to a potential move to the Premier League, attracting interest from top clubs like Arsenal, Manchester United, and Chelsea.

The 21-year-old forward had a standout season in the Bundesliga, scoring 14 goals, including seven in his final seven games. This performance has made him a hot prospect for several Premier League giants.

Reports suggest that Arsenal is looking to negotiate down his £56 million release clause, while Chelsea is prepared to meet the fee. Sesko, in an interview with The Guardian back in 2023, indicated his interest in the Premier League but remained cautious about his rapid rise. “It’s hard to say what will happen. I could be great or not that great. Of course, it would be nice to play there, but first of all, let’s focus on right now and we will see what happens later,” he said.

According to the Evening Standard, Arsenal might have an early advantage in the race for Sesko, but Chelsea is not deterred and remains keen on the young talent. Chelsea has also been linked to Napoli’s Victor Osimhen but is hesitant to pay the £100 million required for the striker. Additionally, they have shown long-standing interest in Brighton’s Evan Ferguson but are not planning a move for the 19-year-old this summer.

Nicolas Jackson, who scored 14 Premier League goals for Chelsea last season but also missed several crucial chances, has had a mixed impact. Chelsea’s transfer activities are expected to intensify following the appointment of Enzo Maresca as the new manager, who described his move to Stamford Bridge as a “dream.”
