Manchester United

Arsenal rivalry puts Man Utd on notice as a Bundesliga striker discusses a January loan move.

Long-term aim Benjamin Sesko may be available to join Manchester United on loan during the January transfer window, although Arsenal is reportedly also interested, according to a report.

Though Sesko’s most recent transfer was only a few months ago (a pre-arranged move inside the Red Bull network from Salzburg to Leipzig), his new team’s lack of consistent game time is raising concerns about his future.

Sesko is now amenable to the notion of going on loan from RB Leipzig in January, according to 90min. In addition, he would especially be in favor of a Premier League debut.

He has at least four suitors there. One of his biggest admirers, Manchester United, may sign him to replace Anthony Martial, whose contract expires at the end of the current campaign and who may depart in January.

According to the source, Sesko might be available on loan with a buyout clause, which implies Man Utd might end up acquiring him on a permanent basis in the summer.

There are hints that the price may be as high as £40 million, which is nearly twice as much as Leipzig spent their sister club earlier in the season for his services.

Manchester United is not the only team that could make a move; Arsenal, Chelsea, and Newcastle United are rumored to be interested in Sesko as well.

The Slovenian international, who is keen to establish himself at Euro 2024 and might prepare for it by proving himself at a new club, does not currently seem to have a clear front-runner to join.

While their fellow summer addition, Lois Openda (who arrived from Lens and has reportedly grabbed Man Utd’s attention) is in such excellent form, his chances of receiving more opportunities with Leipzig look minimal.

He might play a larger part at Man Utd, especially since Rasmus Hojlund, a recent addition, is still waiting for his first Premier League goal.

Gabriel Jesus’s injury problems are the reason Arsenal needs a new striker, and Newcastle’s worries are related to Alexander Isak and Callum Wilson.

Chelsea, on the other hand, is looking for a center-forward with more pedigree than they have now. In order to sign Christopher Nkunku, they have conducted business with RB Leipzig in the summer.

Sesko might be the next player, and possibly much sooner than anticipated, to leave Leipzig for the Premier League.

Leipzig’s deal with the 20-year-old is set to expire in 2028, but if they can make money off of him sooner, they may be inclined to let him leave.

A player who is deemed suitable for the English game by many scouts may be set to play in the Premier League for the first time.
