David Ornstein has recently provided a new update regarding Benjamin Sesko following Arsenal’s approach.


A fresh update on Benjamin Sesko has been shared by David Ornstein following Arsenal’s approach.


In the latest update from David Ornstein, it appears that Benjamin Sesko remains a key target for Arsenal this summer.


However, the progress of negotiations seems to have stalled at the initial stages. Ornstein shared this information during his appearance on The Athletic FC podcast.


Ornstein also mentioned that Arsenal’s interest in Sesko is not a recent development, as they have been monitoring the striker since his time before joining RB Leipzig.


Sesko is highly regarded by Arsenal, according to reports, and Ornstein suggests that he is either at the top or very prominent on their list of potential candidates.


However, there have been no concrete developments with him so far, only numerous discussions.


In terms of competition for his signature, Ornstein reveals that both Chelsea and Manchester United are interested in him and have included him in their transfer shortlists.


However, United believes that Arsenal is currently leading the race.


RB Leipzig is also in talks about extending Sesko’s contract, so while there is speculation in the market about his potential move, it cannot be ruled out that he may stay.


The Standard recently reported that Chelsea remains strongly interested in Sesko and remains confident that they can compete with Arsenal for a deal.


Based on the report, both Arsenal and Chelsea are in favorable positions.


However, Arsenal aims to negotiate a deal below the player’s €65m (£55.4m) release clause, whereas Chelsea might be willing to activate it.


On the flip side, recent reports indicate that AC Milan is no longer in the running as the move is not feasible for the Serie A club.


Sesko is expected to make a decision about his future before the Euros, whether it involves signing a new contract with Leipzig or departing on a permanent deal.


As the centre-forward has been called up by Slovenia and his €65m (£55.4m) release clause will expire at the end of June, it would be wise to swiftly finalize the deal.


The forward netted 18 goals and contributed two assists in 42 matches (22 of which he started) this season, with an average of a goal or assist every 103 minutes.


He concluded the season by scoring in seven straight Bundesliga games.
