Arsenal are now in ‘advanced’ talks to sign striker who plays like Erling Haaland

Arsenal are locked in negotiations to sign a hugely talented striker this summer.

The Gunners have had a brilliant campaign. They are still in with a chance – albeit a small one – to win the Premier League title on the final day of the season.

Irrespective of where they finish in the table, Arsenal are expected to make some big moves this summer. A new striker is said to be on the agenda, and some exciting news has just emerged for Gunners fans.

Arsenal are in advanced talks to sign Benjamin Sesko
Arsenal have a terrific squad right now thanks to Mikel Arteta.

The North Londoners have top-class players in almost every position on the pitch, and that is the reason why they have been pushing Manchester City for the Premier League title.

However, many people still think Arsenal need to sign a prolific striker this summer.

Kai Havertz has done a really impressive job as a centre-forward this season, scoring seven goals and providing seven assists in the 17 games he has played up front.

Gabriel Jesus is a tremendous player too, but his goalscoring form hasn’t been great – he has found the net on just four occasions in the Premier League this season.

As a result, Arsenal have been linked with a number of strikers since the turn of 2024, and CaughtOffside have just shared an exciting update on RB Leipzig star Benjamin Sesko.

The Gunners have been rumoured to be interested in the 20-year-old Slovenia international for quite some time now. He is one of the most talented young strikers in Europe.

Now, the report claims that Arsenal are at ‘an advanced stage in their talks’ with Sesko to bring him to the Emirates Stadium this summer. A four-year contract with an option to extend that by another 12 months is being discussed.

It has been revealed that the RB Leipzig man is ‘prioritising a move to Arsenal’ even though AC Milan are interested in him. Chelsea too could make a move to sign Sesko if their attempt to land Victor Osimhen fails.

The report claims that the striker has a release clause in his contract that makes him available for €50 million (£42.8m) in this summer’s transfer window.

Sesko, who is still only 20, has been compared to Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland by the Bundesliga’s official website.

Benjamin Sesko is one of them, while Newcastle United star Alexander Isak is also said to be on Mikel Arteta’s transfer wish list.

Victor Osimhen, who is set to leave Napoli in the summer, has also been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium.
