The ‘next Erling Haaland’ could be on his way to the Premier League, as Manchester United are reportedly tracking RB Leipzig striker Benjamin Sesko for a potential £42.7 million summer transfer. The Red Devils aim to provide competition for Rasmus Hojlund at the top of the pitch and see Sesko as a perfect fit, given his previous comparisons to Erling Haaland.

Both Arsenal and Chelsea are also interested in the 20-year-old, as his representatives have attended matches for both clubs in an attempt to woo him after his successful debut season at Leipzig with 13 goals. RB Leipzig are already seeking a replacement for Sesko, expecting his £42.7m release clause to be met this summer. The market for strikers is expected to be active in the summer, with other players like Ivan Toney, Viktor Gyokores, and Victor Osimhen also being linked with moves. Arsenal’s manager, Arteta, has expressed a need for forward options after a recent defeat, acknowledging the team does not have a prolific goal scorer.

Hojlund and Nicolas Jackson have experienced ups and downs in their debut seasons in England, with their inexperience leading to periods without scoring. Insufficient competition at Manchester United and Chelsea may have impacted their performance, with Sesko seen as a possible solution to their scoring problems. With the summer transfer window approaching, United, Arsenal, and Chelsea are actively pursuing the acquisition of Sesko, recognizing his potential as an exciting talent.
