More Details

Top European clubs are reportedly showing interest in the 21-year-old, whose contract has a £65 million release clause that is expected to become active this summer.

Premier League clubs are showing the most interest in Sesko, with Chelsea, Manchester United, and Liverpool being particularly interested. The Athletic, however, claims that Arsenal is now leading the race and in the strongest position to sign Sesko.

Of all the Premier League club interested in signing Sesko, the Gunners are the most reliable, and the striker has an easy route into the starting lineup.

The Slovenian moved to Leipzig in 2019 from sister team RB Salzburg, and he has improved every year since arriving in Germany. The Bundesliga team is desperate to hold onto Sesko, not least because they believe his future value will exceed his release clause by a significant margin.

Leipzig are prepared to extend an offer to Sesko that will result in a significant pay rise. It is unclear, though, if the striker will choose to depart, and it is anticipated that other clubs would activate his release clause.

According to reports, Premier League clubs have approved the introduction of a development plan that will curb spending beginning with the 2025–2026 season.

The spending cap proposals were approved by 16 teams, and their goal is to keep the gap between the Premier League’s lower-half teams and its financial titans from growing.

Nevertheless, a report from BBC Sport claims that three teams vying for European football—Manchester United, Manchester City, and Aston Villa—are thought to have voted against the proposal.
