The Spurs are known for going under the radar and signing some hidden gems in the transfer window.
British source claim that Tottenham are willing to buy RB Salzburg striker Benjamin Sesko.
The 18-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The Slovenia international joined RB Salzburg from Domzale for a fee in the region of 2.5 million euros in July 2019. His contract expires in the summer of 2026.
He has featured in 24 matches this term, netting 7 goals and providing 6 assists in all competitions.
The 18-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Slovenia. He has also left his mark at the international stage after netting one goal in 7 senior appearances for the Slovenia national team.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Tottenham are looking to sign a striker and have identified the 18-year-old as potential transfer target.
Antonio Conte has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented young players across the globe.
The Slovenia international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of striker Conte wants to target in the winter transfer window.
The former Domzale man provides a unique blend between a classic center-forward and the modern striker. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.
According to the report, “Tottenham are lining up a move for RB Salzburg striker Benjamin Sesko. Salzburg are responsible for unearthing the likes of Haaland, Dominik Szoboszlai, Hwang Hee-chan, Takumi Minamino, Patson Daka and Sadio Mane among others and that is testament to the club’s recruitment and coaching. The club’s model is centred around signing young players at low cost before developing their game and moving them on to new clubs for substantial fees. Italian journalist Gianluigi Longari reports Spurs are exploring the possibility of a move for Sesko. Although nothing is advanced, the player is now being tracked by Tottenham and a move could potentially be on the cards.”
