It seems Benjamin Sesko is sending a clear message about his transfer intentions, possibly indicating an interest in Arsenal despite reported interest from Chelsea. Arsenal and Chelsea might be gearing up for a summer battle over his signature.

Benjamin Sesko is ending the season in fine style for RB Leipzig ahead of a possible summer transfer. The 20-year-old striker scored his 16th goal of the campaign on Saturday, notching a sixth in the last six games, part of a wider run of 10 in 15 matches with two assists.

He reportedly has a £42million release clause in his deal amid interest from Arsenal and a host of other top clubs including Chelsea and Manchester United. Just last month his agent attended a game between the two London sides, posting on Instagram from the Emirates Stadium inside The VW members-only lounge.

Elvis Basanovic, who works for the Pro Transfer agency that represents him, will be a key figure in whatever his future holds. His job has made that much easier due to the form of Sesko, who scored perhaps his best of the season against Werder Bremen.

Running onto Mohamed Simakan’s knockdown, the Slovenian forward raced to the edge of the box before lashing in a right-footed finish under pressure. Lacing the ball high into the top left corner of the goal, Sesko’s finish demonstrated immense confidence but also a calmness to provide with bodies around him
