Speaking on the NUFC Matters YouTube channel, Ben Jacobs discussed Benjamin Sesko’s situation amid ongoing transfer speculation.
Sesko has been linked with almost every club in Europe, from Manchester United to Chelsea, but he eventually signed for RB Leipzig.
Newcastle United had also been credited with an interest, and the reporter claims Dan Ashworth is well aware of Sesko’s talent.
What was said?
Jacobs shared what he knew about Sesko before his move to Leipzig.
“Newcastle are not actively in the running at the moment, there was excitement because someone saw the agent in Newcastle and put two and two together,” Jacobs said.
“Nothing too much at the moment between Newcastle and Benjamin Sesko other than the fact that Dan Ashworth is well aware that he is a top, top talent.”
keep an eye on him
Newcastle are apparently not for Sesko this summer but perhaps they should keep an eye on his development going forward.
At just 19, the teenager has so much room to grow and improve, but at this age, it would have been a huge risk to spend a lot of money on a player who has barely made an impact at senior level.
Despite all the hype surrounding Sesko, he only scored five league goals last season, and Newcastle, for all their wealth, are not in a position where they can go out and spend a lot of money on a player. of this profile.
However, as Newcastle grow and Sesko develop in the Bundesliga, this could be a move to watch in the future.
Indeed, with Leipzig winning the race in the summer, if Sesko hits the heights expected of him, it won’t be long before Premier League clubs are sniffling again.
Sesko is clearly on Newcastle’s radar, and he could be a player they consider in the future.
