“Long-term” Manchester United transfer target open to January Premier League move



| Last Updated:


“Long-term” Manchester United target Benjamin Šeško is open to moving to the Premier League in January, according to reports.

Manchester United are in dire need of goals in their squad with Scott McTominay being their top scorer as 2023 comes to a close with just four goals.

Their attacking output has been dire this season, with £72 million striker Rasmus Højlund failing to score a single Premier League goal, while last season’s top scorer Marcus Rashford has so far netted just two across the whole campaign.

Last summer, United were said to be very interested in Benjamin Šeško after the player scored 18 goals for RB Salzburg in 2022/23 before moving to RB Leipzig in the summer.

However, according to 90Min, the Slovenian forward is now open to a move to the Premier League just a few months after his arrival in January after he failed to break into the starting XI.

Intermediaries have reportedly made it clear that Šeško is open to the move to England in the upcoming transfer window, with United, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Newcastle United all interested in his signing.

Šeško has been a “long-term” target for Old Trafford, and there have been suggestions of a loan with an obligation to buy based on certain criteria, with Šeško game being “one many top scouts feel is suited to top-level English football”.

Leipzig bought Šeško for around £20 million in the summer, but with the interest coming from the Premier League, they see it as a potential chance to double their money – although they are hesitant to let him go as they attempt to crown themselves champions of the Bundesliga.
