Tottenham are considering a move for RB Salzburg striker Benjamin Sesko, according to transfer guru Gianluigi Longari. 

Spurs have yet to make a move in the transfer window so far this month, but Antonio Conte met with the hierarchy in recent weeks (Evening Standard). 

Conte has often reiterated the importance of Spurs needing to be active in this month’s market to be competitive (The Athletic), but time is running out for the club to meet those demands. 

The Daily Mail suggest he wants to add another striker to lessen the load on Harry Kane, who is currently the club’s only senior striker. 

Spurs are allegedly turning in the direction of Slovenian starlet Sesko who, according to Longari, has caught the eye of the Lilywhites. 

The 18-year-old joined Salzburg in the summer of 2019 and was immediately loaned out to the club’s partner FC Liefering in the Austrian second tier. 

While Sesko’s first year was a period of adjustment, his campaign last season was a stellar one, yielding 21 goals and six assists in 29 appearances (TransferMarkt).

Now back with Salzburg, his return is more modest with seven goals and six assists, though it is thought Spurs are in the process of tracking him (TransferMarkt).

However, Longari has also stated there is nothing advanced regarding the striker, who had received enquiries from a host of other clubs. 

Spurs Web Opinion 

Salzburg has been a goldmine of talent in recent years and it looks as if they have another future star in the form of Sesko. He has been playing at a senior level for a while now and has a pretty good record in front of goal, so this rumour could be one to keep an eye on in the near future.
