Report: Arsenal shifts focus to signing ‘exceptional’ £55m forward instead of Alexander Isak…



Arsenal is currently shifting their attention towards acquiring a remarkable £55m forward instead of Alexander Isak.


Mikel Arteta dismissed speculations about Gabriel Jesus’ future over the weekend.


Nevertheless, considering Jesus’ lack of goals and overall fitness issues this season, Arsenal must evaluate their options in the striking department.


However, Football Transfers suggests that securing a deal for Isak would pose significant challenges. Consequently, Arsenal has redirected their attention towards another target.


That target is Benjamin Sesko.


Arsenal have shifted their focus to Benjamin Sesko following the setback with Alexander Isak, as per the latest update from FT. Sesko’s agent has recently visited The Emirates, indicating the Gunners’ keen interest in the player during this busy summer transfer window.


Compared to other potential targets, Sesko possesses a smaller release clause, making him an attractive option for Arsenal. In contrast, Newcastle is demanding a fee exceeding £100m for Isak.


Previous reports have suggested that Sesko could be available for approximately £55m. However, there are indications that his price tag could be even lower, with various sources consistently mentioning a £43m release clause in his current contract.


Sesko has showcased his talent by netting 15 goals this season and has emerged as one of the standout performers for RB Leipzig.


Despite being only 20 years old, Sesko has ample potential for growth in his skills, which Mikel Arteta recognizes as a significant advantage in molding his progress.


Arsenal is set to invest in the upcoming summer transfer window, and the question remains on which player they will spend their money.


However, by acquiring the remarkable talent of Sesko, they would add another thrilling young forward to their already prolific attacking lineup at The Emirates.
