Red Bull Salzburg striker Benjamin Sesko has reportedly been linked with a move to Manchester United. Several clubs in Europe are interested in signing the 19-year-old Slovenian international.
Newcastle United has been linked with a move for the star player. Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, the two largest clubs in Germany, are also interested.
According to the Daily Mail, United is also keeping tabs on the hotshot. For Sesko, Salzburg has set a £55million asking price and will not let him leave unless that figure is satisfied.
Last week, Sesko’s agency hinted that he would be moving to Newcastle. His picture of himself eating near the Tyne Bridge, which he shared on social media last week, sparked a frenzy of interest amongst the Toon Army.
It didn’t take long for Newcastle to put out those hopes when they announced that no progress had been made in the Sesko transfer, despite their admission that they admired the player.
An attacker and a winger remain top priorities for the Magpies this summer, with Leeds’ Jack Harrison being linked with a move to the North East.
As Manchester United has discovered, relying on a player to become a world-class performer is a hazardous bet. As a result of their disappointing sixth-place finish and the reliance on short-term transfers to bolster their striker alternatives, the club was not in the running to sign Haaland this summer.
Sesko would be a long-term investment that the club could make now and nurture within the organization.
Anthony Martial may require a backup alternative in the striker’s position, thus the youngster might step in. Sesko has the potential to develop into the job and eventually take it over for himself.
EKO was born in Doboj, Bosnia, and Herzegovina, making him eligible to play for both Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. He chose Slovenia, having previously represented Slovenia at the under-15, under-16, under-17, and under-19 levels. In September 2020, he made his Under-19 international debut against Austria in a friendly match.
Matja Kek, the senior team manager, called up Eko in May 2021 for a pair of friendlies in June 2021. On June 1, 2021, he made his debut for Slovenia in a friendly match against North Macedonia.
At the age of 18, he became the youngest player to make his national team debut, breaking Petar Stojanovi’s record of seven years earlier. EKO became Slovenia’s youngest ever goalscorer on 8 October 2021, when he scored his first goal for Slovenia against Malta in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification match.
