An important staff change is looming at Borussia Dortmund in the summer. An 18-year-old Slovenian could also enter the Ruhrpottklub as a new acquisition, which shows parallels with Erling Haaland.
Borussia Dortmund turned to Austria in search of a possible replacement for leaders Erling Haaland. At least that’s what the “kicker” reports. As a result, BVB is addressing the commitment of 18-year-old Benjamin Sesko.
The Slovenian international is currently playing for Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg, the club from which Haaland joined BVB in January 2020. All indications are that the Norwegian will make use of a release clause in the summer and will leave the club. Dortmund. According to the “footballer”, Sesko could therefore follow in his great footsteps.
Sesko consultant visiting BVB games
Sesko not only shares the Salzburg professional station with Haaland, but also the physical stature. As the BVB striker, Sesko stands 1.94m tall and is known for his muscular appearance in the opposing ranks and for his explosive start. However, his goal rate leaves a lot to be desired this season: he has only scored five goals in 21 Austrian Bundesliga appearances.
As the “Kicker” further reports, Sesko’s adviser has been in Dortmund’s last two Bundesliga games at the stadium. However, it is unknown whether for interviews with BVB leaders or simply to explore his client’s possible next club.
BVB observes two other storm talents
The information from “Kicker” is interesting as the “Sport Bild” reported two weeks ago that Sesko was part of FC Bayern’s so-called “shadow team”, which is a list of potential new signings that Munich are planning in the medium term. .
If BVB failed to assert themselves in the courtship for Sesko, two alternative transfer goals would have had to be defined with Czech talent Adam Hlozek (19, Sparta Prague) and Hugo Ekitike (19) of Stade Rennes.
