Newcastle United: Magpies have closely watched Benjamin Sesko

Newcastle United: Magpies have closely watched Benjamin Sesko -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United have reportedly watched RB Salzburg striker Benjamin Sesko closely ahead of a potential move.

The Lowdown: Striker wanted

With links to the likes of Armando Broja and Ludovic Ajorque in recent days, it is clear that the St. James’ Park outfit want to bring in a new striker for Eddie Howe before the transfer deadline.

They are also reportedly interested in signing Marco Asensio and Jack Harrison, suggesting that the manager wants to bring in a winger as well before the window closes.

The Latest: Sesko watched

Co-writing in his latest piece for 90min, transfer expert Graeme Bailey has revealed that the North East club have watched Sesko closely ahead of a possible move this summer, alongside Manchester United, Wolves, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig.

The striker has drawn comparisons with former Salzburg hitman and now Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland, and impressed during a recent pre-season friendly against Liverpool, in which he scored the only goal of the game.

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

The Verdict: Get it done

Given the number of high-profile clubs courting Sesko this summer, the Tynesiders would do well to secure his signature.

Should Newcastle sign Sesko?

Yes

Yes

No

No

With 11 goals and seven assists in total over all competitions last season (Transfermarkt), the 19-year-old is clearly very talented, and the Magpies would no doubt benefit from his development.

Clocking an in-game speed of 36.11 km/h in 2021, Sesko also possesses unique speed as ‘one of the fastest players on the planet‘, even dubbed the ‘new Haaland‘ for that combination of electric speed and raw power.

That pace could also make him an option on the wings – the Toon could kill two birds with one stone should they be able to strike a deal.
