Journalist Ben Jacobs has claimed that Chelsea are seriously interested in signing Benjamin Sesko this summer window, and he could be a great signing for the Blues according to reporter Iomie Stanley

Sesko – who is also attracting interest from the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Man United – ended the season in stunning form, scoring or assisting in 13 of the final 16 games of the Bundesliga season, and his release clause increased to €65million (£56m) as a result.

It is no secret that CHELSEA are looking to add a new striker to that attack in the coming transfer window as they still have not got a 25-30 goal a season forward that can score on a weekly basis.

Jacobs told Givemesport: “Chelsea, I expect to be seriously involved in the Sesko conversation as well. And then PSG are going to have to decide whether or not they want to try for a Sesko player or a profile of his nature, whether they want to put a lot of their saved Mbappe money towards Victor Osimhen, or whether they want to enter the conversation for Rafael Leao.’’

Stanley told icfootballnews: ‘the European Championships will give the likes of CHELSEA a good look at what Sesko is capable of and he could well be a solid addition to any side in the Premier League.

The Board like to sign players that have a good few seasons in the game – that are value for money and that have not yet hit their prime – Sesko is the perfect kind of signing for Chelsea.

But there are a few options for the player – meaning that Chelsea will have a massive battle on their hands to get a deal done’
