According to the Northern Echo, Newcastle United are more than interested in RB Salzburg youngster Benjamin Sesko.

The Magpies’ recruitment team have reportedly honed in on signing Sesko this summer after moves for the likes of Hugo Ekitike and Alexander Isak proved unsuccessful, but, as ever, this won’t be a straightforward transfer for United.

Indeed, according to this report, the player isn’t overly keen to join Newcastle this summer.

Sesko, instead, would prefer to stay at his current club, so he may take some convincing to head to St James’ Park.

Of course, the fact that Sesko wants to stay at Salzburg is a blow, but it isn’t necessarily the end of the world.

So many players have stated that they want to stay only to depart in the proceeding weeks, and, more often than not, money talks – and Newcastle have plenty to spend.

However, while a huge financial package at Newcastle would be tempting, we can understand why Sesko may feel that staying at Salzburg would be the best for his career.

The youngster is on the same career trajectory as the likes of Erling Haaland, Dominik Szoboszlai and Karim Adeyemi, the ‘very fast’ forward is meant to be the next big thing out of the Austrian Bundesliga and another year cutting his teeth for Salzburg surely can’t do any harm.

Newcastle may also have to sell him on their project and his place within the team if they want him to move to Tyneside.
