Liverpool want Benjamin Sesko | The Transfer Tavern

Liverpool have been named among admirers of Red Bull Salzburg striker Benjamin Sesko, according to reports from Spain.

The Truth: Become a Celebrity

Signed from Salzburg in 2019 for £2.25million, Sesko went from strength to strength in Austria and enjoyed a stellar spell at FC Liefering, scoring 22 goals and providing six assists in 44 appearances over two loan spells .

Despite his tender years, the 19-year-old Slovenia international has already established himself as a mainstay of the senior XI for club and country, attracting interest from Newcastle, Manchester United, Wolves, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig. in the process.

Now a new report from Spain has thrown a few more names into the mix as potential suitors for Sesko, including Liverpool…

The last: “Klopp is in love”

According to a Spanish source, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​PSG, Man United and Chelsea all like the 13-cap star.

The Reds are claimed to be among those who ‘want’ and have ‘shown interest’ in Sesko, forcing Salzburg to place a €65m (£54m) price tag on the head of their leader.

The report also says Jurgen Klopp ‘is in love’ with the hitman after watching the teenager described as ‘one of the fastest players on the planet’ scoring the game’s only goal in last week’s pre-season loss to Austria.

The verdict: One for the future

While there can’t be a bad time to sign hottest properties such as Sesko, after landing Darwin Nunez in the summer, it seems highly unlikely that FSG will sanction another major outlay for a striker so soon.

Instead, the Reds are likely to keep a brief look at the 6ft 3in sniper and perhaps hope that no major transfers are on the cards with a view to making a move in the future, potentially after having enjoyed further development and scored many more goals.


Can you guess the ten Liverpool transfer fees? We doubt it! First, a very popular Dutchman…

Last season, Sesko – who has already recorded a staggering speed of play of 36.11 km/h in 2021 – scored ten times and registered seven more assists in 36 appearances in all competitions for Salzburg.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Slovenian speedster has made a flying start to the 2022/23 campaign, scoring twice and setting up a team-mate on one occasion in the first three games, further proof of a supreme ability to make an impact. on games in the final third.

Under contract until 2026 (Transfermarkt), Liverpool, Klopp and Julian Ward will be hoping Sesko remains in the market for the next transfer windows, possibly as a long-term successor to Robert Firmino.
