Tottenham have plans to transfer Benjamin Sesko, and Paratici is leading a mission for the Salzburg star
Tottenham are reportedly monitoring RB Salzburg forward Benjamin Sesko and will monitor his progress next season ahead of a potential move.
Spurs were one of the Premier League teams to watch in the first month of the transfer window. After four new additions, they look set to progress from last season’s top four finish and into the Champions League.
The focus will soon shift to spending ahead of the January window and next summer’s market.
And it is in those two windows for which Tottenham they make initial plans.
Antonio Conte’s side was linked with the transfer of the Slovenian representative Sesko in January. According to the Daily Expressalthough the 13-cap star is back on the north London club’s radar.
Tottenham director of football Fabio Paratici has been liaising with the club’s scouts, making the 19-year-old one to watch next season.
The paper claims that while Tottenham will not sign Sesko this summer, he could become a firm target in the two upcoming transfer windows.
Šeško played 36 games for Salzburg last season, scored 10 goals and assisted seven.
However, following the departure of Karim Adeyemi to Borussia Dortmund, who will replace Manchester City-bound Erling Haaland, he is likely to take center stage for the Austrian club next season.
Haaland also became important in Salzburg. So Sesko wants to follow the Norwegian and Adeyemi.
The Slovenian played six matches in the Champions League last season and could impress in the competition next season.
Sesko made his debut for the national team in June 2021 and scored two goals for his country. Meanwhile, his contract in Salzburg does not expire until 2026.
Tottenham are targeting Salzburg’s latest star Sesko
Sesko looks to be Salzburg’s newest star from the club’s impressive production line.
Not only is he following in the footsteps of Haaland and Adeyemi with his goalscoring streak, Salzburg have players in every position who have achieved – and could yet achieve – bigger and better things.
Leeds United have signed midfielder Brenden Aaronson from the Austrian club. Boss Jesse Marsch, who once managed Salzburg, also admires Mohamed Camaro.
Meanwhile, Leeds have added Rasmus Kristensen from Salzburg to their ranks.
Salzburg, like RB Leipzig, has a successful transfer model, and with Sesko in their ranks, their finances from sales will not dry up anytime soon.
