Report: Inter Milan Join The Race With Liverpool And Real Madrid For Salzburg Star Benjamin Sesko

Salzburg wonderkid Sesko caught the eye of Inter Milan as well as Liverpool and Real Madrid.

Inter Milan are the third team to show their interest in 18 year old Benjamin Sesko from Austrian club Salzburg. 

Sesko joined Salzburg from his boyhood team NK Domzale and has spent the last two seasons  out on loan to FC Liefering who are a in Austrian Bundesliga 2.

Whilst at Liefering, Sessko an incredible 22 goals and 6 assists in 44 games. Since joining back up with Salzburg this season, he has continued his scoring prowess. With 7 goals and 3 assists already to his name in 16 games.

Would it be a good signing?

Salzburg are well known for developing absolute talent. From. Sadio Mane, Erling Haaland, Marcel Sabitzer, Naby Keita and many more have been through Salzburg to get where they are today. 

This lad could be another one to be watching out for in the future. At such a young age, Sessko will probably gradually build to the top.

With Salzburg having the same owners as Leipzig then a move for Sessko to join the German team wouldn't be surprising. Most have gone that way as a stepping stone and it certainly works.

LFCTR Verdict

Even though Taki Minamino hasn't stepped up as much yet, I still believe signing a player from Salzburg is a very good option. 

I would be open to a move for him but I think I would like to see him at another club like Leipzig first. 

Although then you get the problem of his price going up like crazy if he is a superstar.

I think he's definitely a player to keep an eye out for. Salzburg in general are a team to keep an eye on.
