Liverpool’s €65M target is nearing switch to England but competition is fierce with Man Utd and Chelsea interested

Liverpool’s €65M target is nearing a Premier League switch according to the latest reports as the Reds may look to move for the forward.

RB Salzburg’s Benjamin Sesko has been linked with a move to the PL in recent weeks with Manchester United and Chelsea interested.

The Slovenian youngster starred in Salzburg’s 1-0 win over Liverpool in a pre-season friendly in July and now has become a highly coveted target.

It seems the forward is nearing a switch to the Premier League but it won’t be for Liverpool as it stands.

Latest reports on Sesko

As per a Spanish source, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, Man United and Chelsea are all keen on the Salzburg forward.

It’s claimed that the Reds are among those who ‘want’ and have ‘shown interest’ in Sesko, forcing Salzburg to place a €65million (£54million) price tag on their star man.

Discussions between United and Salzburg seem to be the most advanced; there’s currently a gap in valuation for Sesko and United are deciding whether to pursue a deal.

Salzburg are under no pressure to sell Sesko as he has four years left on his contract.

Liverpool are well stacked in attack but currently are without Diogo Jota due to his hamstring injury which could take up to a month to recover from.

Darwin Nunez will likely lead the line but the only other backup is 30-year-old Roberto Firmino who is in the final year of his deal.

Jurgen Klopp was clearly impressed by the talents of Sesko whilst watching him live – in what is a typical way for Klopp to confirm transfer targets.

Liverpool may need to move for a central forward next summer and Sesko could be an option if he hasn’t been signed already.
