Benjamin Sesko convinced on Milan move


La Gazzetta dello Sport report that Slovenian striker Benjamin Sesko has his sights set on Milan, while Sergio Conceiçao is keeping the door open for a potential move away from Porto. The Rossoneri are in need of a new attacking option to lead the line when Olivier Giroud leaves, while Stefano Pioli looks almost certain to depart the club this summer.

Gazzetta write that Sesko has been in scintillating form, with his recent goal against Werder Bremen marking his sixth consecutive strike in as many Bundesliga matches. The newspaper also report thow Milan supporters are eager for Sesko’s arrival, viewing the young forward as a coveted talent across Europe, with the club reportedly ready to invest €50 million in securing his services.

Before making what could be their most expensive signing ever, Milan have deliberated extensively. CEO Giorgio Furlani has played a pivotal role in negotiations, tasked with balancing the market’s financial demands. With a generous budget, the club can both invest in talent and retain their key players, boasting a healthy financial standing.

The approval of club icon Ibrahimovic further bolsters Sesko’s potential move. The Swedish striker, who has expressed his admiration for the young forward, recognizes Sesko’s promise as a burgeoning striker. At just twenty years old, Sesko boasts an impressive scoring record, having netted 29 goals for Salzburg, 17 for Leipzig, and 11 for the Slovenian national team at Euro 2024.

The feeling is mutual; Sesko relishes the prospect of donning the iconic number 9 jersey for Milan, relishing the opportunity to thrive in Serie A’s tactical intricacies and to perform at San Siro. Milan’s salary offer falls within Sesko’s parameters, and negotiations with the player’s representatives indicate a willingness to engage with the Rossoneri. While his release clause, currently set at €50 million, may rise, there’s confidence in securing a favorable deal with Leipzig.

In terms of coaching, Marco Rose, Sesko’s current coach at Leipzig, is nurturing the young striker’s potential. Rose himself has been linked to the Milan bench as a potential successor to Pioli. However, Milan’s immediate priority lies in waiting to see if Conceiçao becomes available after concluding Porto’s season.

Ahead of their match against Boavista, Conceiçao addressed his contractual situation publicly, hinting at a potential departure. His ambiguous remarks leave the door open for a move to Milan, a prospect that entices the Portuguese coach.
