Journalist Ben Jacobs has claimed that CHELSEA are seriously interested in signing Benjamin Sesko this summer window.

Sesko ended the season in stunning form, scoring or assisting in 13 of the final 16 games of the Bundesliga season, and his release clause increased to €65million (£56m) as a result.

It is no secret that the board are looking to add a new striker to that attack in the coming transfer window as they still have not got a 25-30 goal a season forward that can score on a weekly basis.

Jacobs told Givemesport: “CHELSEA, I expect to be seriously involved in the Sesko conversation as well. And then PSG are going to have to decide whether or not they want to try for a Sesko player or a profile of his nature, whether they want to put a lot of their saved Mbappe money towards Victor Osimhen, or whether they want to enter the conversation for Rafael Leao.’’

Blues star Djordje Petrovic has recently praised Sesko and claimed that he is ready for a move to the Premier League –

Asked about Sesko, who he may face off against in the Euro 2024 group stages, Serbia international Petrovic told Nogomania: ‘I know [about the rumours] and have been following him.

‘He’s having a good half-season, he’s in great scoring form

‘I read that he’s scored in his last seven matches in a row. He seems to have gained strong momentum for the Euros.

‘He’s a forward who has everything a modern player needs. He’s tall, strong, fast and intelligent.

‘I’ve watched some of his matches. Of course he can play in the Premier League. Absolutely!

‘He has great potential and he’s been successfully proving it in recent months.’
