Newcastle United are reportedly eyeing a summer move for the Austrian forward Benjamin Sesko as a potential long-term replacement for Callum Wilson.
Sesko, who currently plays for RB Leipzig, has found himself playing second fiddle and might be open to a move to the Premier League.
The upcoming summer transfer window is expected to see various top Premier League clubs seeking new strikers, including Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea.
Sesko has emerged as a target for multiple clubs, with Newcastle United now entering the race.
The 20-year-old, could bring youth and talent to Eddie Howe’s squad. The reported €50 million price tag set by RB Leipzig might pose a challenge, considering Newcastle’s financial constraints due to Financial Fair Play regulations.
The potential acquisition of Sesko could also trigger competition within the squad, especially in the striker position, where he could compete with Alexander Isak.
Newcastle United, despite being one of the wealthiest clubs following the 2022 Saudi-based takeover, faces challenges in balancing the books, possibly leading to the departure of key players.
Rumours linking Arsenal to Isak and Chelsea’s interest in Bruno Guimaraes might have connections to Newcastle’s pursuit of Sesko. The club’s ability to strengthen its squad in the summer hinges on navigating financial constraints and potential player departures.
