The young striker is highly coveted by Chelsea, who may try to sign him to a contract in London at the end of the current campaign, claims Spanish outlet Fichajes. The Premier League’s juggernauts will likely alter their attacking lineup.
With the options he currently has available, Graham Potter isn’t very happy. The Blues have had difficulty scoring goals, and more work must be done to fix the issue.
The 19-year-old center-forward is thought to be one of the most talented young players in European football right now, and the Blues are hoping to sign him in the summer.
Graham Potter allegedly asked the Blues to sign the 19-year-old, according to a report from Fichajes, but it is still unclear whether the Premier League powerhouses can reach an agreement with RB Leipzig.
Sesko was acquired by the German team from Red Bull Salzburg at the beginning of the current campaign, but he is currently on loan to the Austrian team.
He is anticipated to sign with his new team at the end of the current campaign, so Chelsea will need to persuade Leipzig to let the player go before he even makes his team debut.
According to the report, Chelsea would have no trouble agreeing to pay the German club’s potential asking price of about €50 million for his services.
The 19-year-old can mature into a top-tier athlete in the future because he could solve Chelsea’s goal-scoring issues shortly.
Despite signing in the summer, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hasn’t been at his best for the Blues this year, which has hindered their ability to score goals.
Chelsea currently suffers from a severe lack of goal scorers, and if they want to once again contend for major trophies, they will need to address this issue.
Across all competitions this season, Sesko has tallied 10 goals and 5 assists.
