Barcelona Begin Tracking Pricey Milan and Napoli Target

Barcelona have joined the race for Benjamin Sesko, who’s considered a secondary mark for Milan and Napoli. Both will be in the hunt for a new young striker in the summer. On the other hand, convincing RB Leipzig to sell won’t be easy, Fichajes reports.

The marksman has bagged 12 goals and provided 2 assists in 36 appearances across all competitions this campaign. The Bundesliga side paid €24M to acquire him from RB Salzburg last summer.

RB Leipzig want the Sesko suitors to activate his €50M release clause to lure him, which is a substantial problem for Barcelona, Milan, and Napoli, also because of its rigid payment structure. The Blaugrana have been navigating major Financial Fair Play limitations in recent years. They would have to complete some departures before seriously considering such an acquisition.

The Partenopei have also been attached by Santiago Gimenez in their search for Victor Osimhen’s heir. He won’t come cheap either since Feyenoord ask for €60M, Il Mattino informs.

Our Take on Sesko, Barcelona, Milan, and Napoli

He has yet to truly blossom in a top-five league, but he’s younger than other targets and has everything in place to do so in the next couple of years. Considering such an element of risk and that buying from RB Leipzig, which have every interest in keeping him, is always a tall order, it’s more likely that those sides, especially the Italian ones, will have to look elsewhere.
