Arsenal’s Transfer Hopes Dashed as Benjamin Sesko Commits to RB Leipzig for Contract Extension

Sesko travels to Germany today with the Slovenia national team and wanted to make a swift decision over his future ahead of the European Championships. It comes after Slovenia boss Matjaz Kek, who is keen to avoid any potential distractions ahead of the tournament, recently labelled the transfer saga a “circus”.

But Sesko’s agent Elvis Basanovic has now communicated to relevant parties that the frontman will be staying put this summer. His new deal will also include a gentleman’s agreement with Leipzig that will enable Sesko to move onto pastures for a fair price in the future.

Yet at the same time, Sesko’s agent Basanovic had also made it known that there was every chance he would remain at Leipzig to continue his impressive development after hitting 18 goals in all competitions this season. Additionally, Sesko was not the only target on Arsenal’s radar despite being a top pick.

A new winger to bolster attacking options could be in the offing while Arsenal are also open to strengthening in central midfield with Newcastle’s Bruno Guimaraes among the names of interest. Thomas Partey’s future remains up in the air as he approaches the final year of his contract.

The Gunners are also admirers of Monaco’s Youssouf Fofana, who is set to leave the Ligue 1 club this summer, and have held initial talks with his representatives but at this stage, discussions have gone no further than that. *Join our new WhatsApp community!
