Arsenal are reportedly positioning themselves as the frontrunners in the pursuit of RB Leipzig striker Benjamin Sesko ahead of the summer transfer window. Manager Mikel Arteta is eager to bolster his attacking options, with Gabriel Jesus’ struggles prompting the Gunners to explore potential signings, and Sesko has emerged as a prime target.

The 20-year-old forward, who made a big impact in his debut season with Leipzig, attracting attention with 17 goals across all competitions, has drawn interest from several top clubs, including Manchester United. However, Arsenal now appears to be at the forefront of the race to secure his services, as reported by The Telegraph.

With four years remaining on his contract, Sesko’s future has become a subject of intense speculation, further fueled by his agent’s recent presence at Arsenal’s Premier League victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford. The Slovenian international himself has remained diplomatic about his prospects, emphasising the importance of making the right decision while focusing on his current obligations.

As the current season draws to a close, Sesko will look to end his campaign on a high as RB Leipzig face Eintracht Frankfurt in their final Bundesliga fixture. Despite already securing Champions League qualification, Sesko’s potential move to Arsenal adds an intriguing subplot to his future endeavours, with both clubs harbouring aspirations of success in their respective leagues. 

Arsenal’s hopes of winning the Premier League title remain alive, contingent upon a victory against Everton and a favourable outcome in West Ham’s clash against Manchester City on the final day of the season.
