Arsenal are currently being linked with Benjamin Sesko ahead of the January transfer window.

Fabrizio Romano, writing on CaughtOffside, has now shared what he knows amid the speculation linking the Gunners with the 20-year-old.

The transfer insider admitted that he’s not aware of Arsenal looking at Sesko as a potential alternative to Ivan Toney.

However, Romano acknowledged that “many clubs” are currently engaging in “normal scouting activity”.

The Italian also said Sesko would be an “excellent choice” for any of Europe’s big clubs.

“Some Arsenal fans are asking me about reports linking them with an interest in Benjamin Sesko,” wrote Romano.

“But I’m not currently aware of anything concrete happening there.

“He’s being linked with many clubs but as far as I understand it’s nothing advanced at the moment, just normal scouting activity.

“I really like Sesko, he’d be excellent choice for every club around Europe.

“Still, it’s important to respect RB Leipzig as well, because at the moment they don’t want to sell – they don’t want to lose any of their top players in January.

“As I recently reported, this is more likely to be one for summer 2024 or even 2025.

“In terms of strikers for Arsenal, I’ve already spoken about the interest in Ivan Toney, but it’s not an easy deal and Chelsea are also informed on his situation.

“So that remains an open race, but I’m not aware of the Gunners pursuing Sesko as an alternative for now.”

Meanwhile, 90Min have claimed that intermediaries have now spoken to Arsenal about a potential move for Sesko.
