Reports from Germany suggest that AC Milan are actively pursuing RB Leipzig striker Benjamin Sesko with a €40m offer, aiming to outpace competition from Arsenal.
Milan are leaving no stone unturned in its quest for a new striker during the upcoming summer transfer window. The Rossoneri, having fallen short in securing a long-term replacement for Olivier Giroud last year, are keen on bolstering their attacking options. While Luka Jovic and Noah Okafor have provided some cover, Milan acknowledge the need for significant investment in the striking department.
The January transfer window saw Milan relatively quiet on the acquisition front, with the only signing being Filippo Terracciano from Hellas Verona. The club also decided to loan out surplus players, including Rade Krunic, Luka Romero, and Chaka Traore.
According to information shared by Bild’s Head of Football, Christian Falk, via Caught Offside, Milan have formulated a €40m offer for Benjamin Sesko. The move is strategic, aiming to outmaneuver Arsenal, who also have their sights set on the RB Leipzig striker.
Sesko, a 20-year-old Slovenian, is under contract with RB Leipzig until June 2028, and his current deal includes a €50m release clause. The young striker has showcased his talent this season, netting eight goals in 25 appearances across various competitions for RB Leipzig.
