Arsenal are increasing their push to sign a new striker, with a keen eye on a promising £42m-rated prospect who has been touted as the next Haaland…



Arsenal is intensifying their efforts to secure a new striker in the upcoming transfer window, and they have set their sights on RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko.


Following their Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night, Arsenal is now strategizing their transfer plans.


Manager Mikel Arteta is determined to bolster his squad’s attacking prowess for the next season, and the club has been closely monitoring the 6ft 4in Slovenian forward Sesko as a potential option.


However, Arsenal will face stiff competition from Chelsea and Manchester United, as both clubs are also keeping a close eye on the talented 20-year-old.


Sesko’s representatives have already attended matches of both Chelsea and Manchester United this season, indicating the interest from these clubs.


RB Leipzig recently acquired Sesko from their sister club Red Bull Salzburg last summer. However, the Bundesliga team is already preparing for his potential departure and exploring potential replacements.


Sesko’s contract includes a release clause of €50 million (£42.7m), which will become active in the upcoming summer transfer window. With an impressive record of 13 goals across all competitions this season, Sesko is considered a promising talent with a bright future ahead.


He is often compared to Erling Haaland due to their shared history at Salzburg, but Sesko remains unaffected by the comparison. Unlike Haaland, Sesko possesses the versatility to play out wide and offers a different style of play.


Arsenal, in their search for both center-forwards and wingers, view Sesko as an appealing option due to his ability to excel in both positions.


Arsenal is currently scouting for center-forwards and wingers, and Sesko is a promising choice due to his versatility in playing in multiple positions.


It is anticipated that his salary requirements will be more reasonable compared to other forwards available.


The striker market is expected to be highly active this summer, especially with Paris Saint-Germain seeking replacements for Kylian Mbappe following his departure to Real Madrid.


Additionally, Viktor Gyokeres, Victor Osimhen, and Ivan Toney are also potential movers in the upcoming transfer window.
