Liverpool are 'crazy' about Benjamin Sesko but won't sign him this summer

Liverpool are 'crazy' about highly-rated forward Benjamin Sesko but the club are happy with their attacking options and will pass on signing the player this summer, ​SPORTbible understands. 

Sesko, who has four years left on his current deal at Austrian champions RB Salzburg, continues to be linked with a big-money move.

There are plenty of options on the table. We are told clubs from the Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga and a 'top' Ligue 1 side have already held talks with the 19-year-old's representatives.

At this moment, five clubs have expressed a 'very concrete interest' in signing Sesko. 

It is understood that Manchester United have held positive talks over a transfer, while Chelsea are monitoring his situation closely. 

Liverpool, meanwhile, see the player as a star of the future and although they rate him highly, Jurgen Klopp's side have decided to walk away from a deal this summer. 

RB Salzburg would like to keep the Slovenia international for another year.

We are told Sesko will sit down with his family and agent in the coming days to make a decision about his future. They want to pursue a ‘smart’ decision. Money is not a factor behind the move. 

A decision could be made in the next 3-4 days.

The teenager has been compared to Erling Haaland by some, and you can understand why after seeing his finish against Liverpool in pre-season last month.

In the 30th minute at the Red Bull Arena, the six-foot-four striker breezed past Ibrahima Konate before charging towards goal. He looked up, found teammate Noah Okafor and continued his run.

Okafor returned the favour with a great pass before Sesko slotted past Adrian with ease. He showcased power, speed and composure to give Salzburg the lead.
