RB Leipzig have confirmed that Benjamin Sesko will join the club next summer.
RB Leipzig have confirmed the signing of Benjamin Sesko from their Austrian sister club RB Salzburg.

The 19-year-old striker will join Leipzig in July 2023 on a contract until the summer of 2028.

RB Leipzig technical director Christopher Vivell commented:

"Benjamin Šeško is one of Europe’s best young talents and has a great amount of potential to become one of the best. He offers a lot in his game, he’s extremely fast, has a great jumping reach and is strong in the air. Benjamin has a true eye for goal and, despite his height, is technically gifted and mobile. His qualities make him a unique and special player.

I’ve known Benjamin since he was 15 and was able to convince him to come to Salzburg in 2019. Since then, I’ve followed his development closely and have seen every goal that he’s scored. The best option is for Benjamin to continue in Salzburg for one more year and mature before coming to Leipzig. We’re already looking forward to that a lot, said Vivell.

Sesko added:

"I'm very happy to be able to make the move to RB Leipzig in 2023 and that the transfer is now confirmed.

"RB Leipzig are one of the best clubs in Germany and are establishing themselves as one of the best in Europe year on year. A success story has been written here in just a few years and I want to be a part of it in the future."
