Newcastle United are still chasing a striker and fans have been left excited after seeing that Benjamin Sesko’s agent is in the North East.

The Magpies have bolstered their back line with the signings of goalkeeper Nick Pope and central defender Sven Botman.

Left back Matt Targett has signed permanently after a strong loan spell from Aston Villa, but the attention must turn to attacking options.

Moussa Diaby and Alexander Isak are proving to be too expensive whilst Hugo Ekitike has joined Paris Saint-Germain instead of Newcastle.

Newcastle United are still chasing a striker

Ekitike’s snub means Newcastle must now look elsewhere and finding another young talent like the Frenchman may be a priority.

Bordeaux’s Sekou Mara has been linked but fans are now getting excited about a possible move for Benjamin Sesko.

Nothing has actually been reported about Newcastle chasing the Red Bull Salzburg attacker but his agent has set tongues wagging.

Agent Elvir Basanovic runs the Pro Transfer agency and whilst he has a number of clients, Sesko is by far the highest-profile.

Basanovic has taken to Instagram, first to show himself boarding a plane before then posting a photo from a restaurant in Newcastle.

None of Basanovic’s other clients would make sense for a move to Newcastle and Sesko fits the mould of an exciting young striker for the future – just like Sesko.

Sesko, 19, has played 37 first-team games for Salzburg, racking up 11 goals and seven assists in those games.

The Slovenian is a huge presence at 6ft 4in tall and already has 13 caps for Slovenia.

Formerly of Domzale in his homeland, Sesko looks to be another top striking talent to pass through Salzburg, just like Erling Haaland, Patson Daka and Karim Adeyemi before him.

Basanovic has hailed Sesko as ‘very fast’ and with enormous potential to become a superstar just like Haaland, the teenager could fit the Newcastle bill perfectly.

It’s hard to imagine Basanovic fancying a holiday to Newcastle – no disrespect intended to the North East – so Sesko to St James’ Park may be one to keep an eye even if it’s just calculated guesswork at this stage.
