Tottenham are ‘considering’ a move for RB Salzburg striker Benjamin Sesko, according to Gianluigi Longari.
The Lowdown: Sesko profiled
Sesko is just 18 years of age and is an out and out centre-forward who already has seven caps for Slovenia.
How many signings does Conte need to make in January?
Valued at £7.2m by Transfermarkt, Sesko is his agency’s most valuable asset and has contributed to 13 goals in 24 Salzburg appearances in what has been a breakthrough 2021/22 campaign for the young prodigy.
The Latest: Longari’s post
Longari took to Twitter on Thursday to reveal Spurs’ interest in Sesko. He claimed that Tottenham are considering a move for the teenager, with a number of other clubs also making enquiries.
“Tottenham are also considering the young striker Benjamin Sesko from Salzburg. Nothing advanced for the moment. Other clubs have made enquiries about him.”
The Verdict: Vlahovic alternative?
Antonio Conte seems to be keen on bolstering his centre forward ranks, with the club keen on Fiorentina star Dusan Vlahovic. However, Arsenal appear to be leading the race for the Serbian, so Sesko could be viewed as a possible alternative to Vlahovic.
Harry Kane is Tottenham’s only recognised centre-forward available to Conte, so bringing in someone like Sesko could be a smart move.
He appears to be a future star and could be the latest to leave Salzburg for the Premier League, so this could be a transfer to keep a close eye on over the coming weeks, if not months.
