CHELSEA FC, who are eyeing a move for RB Leipzig’s star forward Benjamin Sesko in the summer, have learned about the fee that they would have to pay to sign him.

The club spent heavily in the summer transfer window, breaking their own transfer record to sign sign a number of players that they feel will help drive the club into a new era of winning trophies.

However – despite the good form of Cole Palmer and Nicolas Jackson, there are many out there that believe the club are still lacking a striker to score the goals on a regular basis, with the likes of Ivan Toney linked.

We are favourites to land Toney as they look to add a notable striker to Mauricio Pochettino’s squad, and the 27-year-old is believed to be open to leaving Brentford at the end of the season.

But his £100 million asking price may put alot of clubs offf in the summer window because of the financial fair play rules – meaning that the likes of Chelsea may have to switch attentions to the likes of Sesko.

According to GiveMeSport, Sesko has a release clause of £43m in his existing contract, an amount that we would be willing to shell out.

He is regarded as one of the finest young strikers in the game – and fits the type of player that the board are looking to sign in the future
