Liverpool Feeling ‘crazy’ over high-rated striker Benjamin Cesco, but the club are happy with their attacking options and will continue to sign the player this summer, sports bible clear.
Sesko, who has four years left on his contract with Austrian champions RB Salzburg, continues to be linked with a huge transfer.
There are many options on the table. We’re told that clubs from the Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga and “top” Ligue 1 teams have held talks with representatives of the 19-year-old.
So far, five clubs have expressed “very specific interest” in signing Cesco.
Manchester United are understood to have been in active talks over a transfer, while Chelsea are closely monitoring his situation.
Liverpool, meanwhile, see the player as a future star and despite their high opinion of him, Jurgen Klopp’s side have decided to walk away from a deal this summer.
RB Salzburg wants to keep the Slovenia international for another year.
We’re told Sesko will sit down with his family and agent in the coming days to make a decision on his future. They want to pursue a “smart” decision. Money was not the factor behind the move.
A decision may be made within the next 3-4 days.
The teenager has been likened to Erin Haaland by some, and you can see why seeing him excel in pre-season against Liverpool last month.
In the 30th minute at the Red Bull Arena, the 6ft 4in striker swept past Ibrahima Konate with ease and sprinted towards goal. He looked up, found teammate Noah Okafor, and continued his run.
Okafor returned with a fine pass before Sesco easily passed Adrian. He showed strength, speed and composure to give Salzburg the lead.
