According to recent reports, Arsenal are targeting RB Leipzig striker Benjamin Sesko to strengthen their attack. With the January transfer window looming, Mikel Arteta appears to be prioritizing the signing of a new striker, with Sesko on the list of potential reinforcements.
Arsenal currently have Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Jesus as their main centre-forwards. Both have scored goals this season but the Gunners want to expand their attacking options. In this context, interest is emerging in Benjamin Sesko, a 20-year-old striker who delivered outstanding performances in his first season at RB Leipzig.

Despite the competition in Leipzig, Sesko has proven his goalscoring qualities with six goals in 17 competitive games. Despite not being a permanent starter due to the impressive performances of his teammate Lois Openda, the Slovenia international has caught the attention of Arsenal, who are looking to strengthen their attacking front.
However, the potential acquisition of Sesko will not be easy as Leipzig could demand a significant transfer fee for the young striker, who is under contract until June 2028. Competition for his signing could be fierce, but Arsenal appear ready to explore ways to improve their offense.
As well as Sesko, Arsenal are also eyeing Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic and Santos youngster Marcos Leonardo as part of their search for a new striker. The January transfer window promises to be an exciting one for Arsenal fans and offers the chance to see new faces in their attack for the rest of the season.
