CHELSEA are reportedly very confident that they will sign RB Leipzig striker 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.

Sesko has also been attracting alot of interest from the likes of Arsenal in recent weeks too – but now, Simon Phillips has claimed on his Substack that we are growing in confidence at their ability to beat rivals to that deal.

He said: “Sesko is our preferred choice of striker target right now due to the lower cost and lower agent fees involved. There’s confidence building around this one, but nothing is done or close yet because Arsenal are also keen.

“I’ve also been told that no final decision has been signed off for the new striker yet, but Sesko is up their with the top priorities for that position.”

If We manage to sign the Bundesliga star – he will be a brilliant addition to the side – it is that simple.

He has all the potential to develop into one of the very best strikers in the game in the coming seasons and for that £43 million, he could be seen as a real transfer bargain.

He would be welcomed here.
