Benjamin Sesko turns down Arsenal to stay in Leipzig

Slovenian striker Benjamin Sesko has turned down offers from some of the biggest clubs in European football to continue his development at RB Leipzig.

The 21-year-old has been one of Europe’s breakout stars this season after making the move from RB Salzburg to RB Leipzig less than 12 months ago.

Sesko scored 18 goals and provided two assists in all competitions, with the vast majority of his minutes coming from the bench in the Bundesliga, starting on just 17 occasions this season.

Arsenal, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, Chelsea and multiple clubs from the Saudi Pro League all sent Leipzig advanced proposals, but the player made the decision to stay and continue developing his talent in the Bundesliga.
