Djordje Petrovic has praised CHELSEA target Benjamin Sesko and feels he is ready-made for the Premier League,

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 we 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.

And amid all the speculation – goalkeeper Petrovic may well see that price tag as something of a bargain, with the 24-year-old convinced Sesko would be a success in the Premier League after following his performances this season.

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.’
