Newcastle: Mark Douglas drops Benjamin Sesko update -Newcastle United News

Rumoured Newcastle United target Benjamin Sesko, a striker for RB Salzburg, is likely to remain in Austria, according to reliable journalist Mark Douglas.

The Lowdown: NUFC links

According to a report by Sportsmail (via Daily Mail), the Magpies are admirers of the 19-year-old forward and he is being tracked among a list of potential targets.

Newcastle are working within Financial Fair Play restrictions and thus have been priced out of moves for Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak and Bayer Leverkusen winger Moussa Diaby.

The Daily Mail states the likes of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are interested in making a move for Sesko next summer, meaning the Magpies may need to act fast to secure his signature for the long-term.

The Latest: Douglas’ news

Douglas has shared the latest news on Newcastle’s pursuit of the young attacker.

Taking to Twitter, the reliable journalist claimed:

“Interesting #nufc link w/ Benjamin Sesko, 19-year-old RB Salzburg striker, this morning – sparked partly by agent posting he’s in Newcastle on Instagram.

“Agent schtum now & sources in Salzburg who’ve spoken to club manager (sporting director) Christoph Freund this AM feel he’s likely to stay.”

Newcastle fans! Do you remember who scored your first league goal of the 21/22 season?

The Verdict: Huge potential

The Slovenia international made 24 appearances in the Austrian top-flight last season, during which he scored five goals and produced three assists (via Transfermarkt).

Furthermore, the 19-year-old made six appearances in the Champions League, featuring in his side’s starting XI on two occasions.

Should Newcastle sign Sesko?

Yes

No

As a result, it is easy to see the player’s potential, given the huge trust already bestowed in him by Freund.

If Newcastle can convince the striker to join them at St. James’ Park, this would be a great signing for the Toon, but it looks like they may have to wait a year and battle it out with some of Europe’s heavyweights.
