After a frantic transfer window for the Catalans, they are already looking at shoring up the future comings and goings that can stablise the club.
In recent years, Barcelona have looked to prioritise more of a long-term recruitment approach for many key positions that can take over once the stopgap solutions and free agents signed for immediate reinforcement fade.
And with Robert Lewandowski’s faltering form, the Blaugrana have to start thinking of names that they can line up to lead their frontline for years to come.
Enter Benjamin Sesko
Leipzig’s Slovenian marksman Benjamin Sesko is now a name on the radar of Barcelona’s scouting department, according to journalist Francesc Aguilar.
The club have apparently been following the 20-year-old since he was at Liefering (Leipzig’s affiliate team), where his physical prowess and speed initially caught the eye, before he went on to break through at Leipzig.
Standing at 6 foot 3 inches, he is quite the specimen and rapid for his size, and has previously also drawn comparisons to Erling Haaland due to their style of play.
Under Marco Rose, Sesko has also been developing his skills to be able to efficiently link up play aside from his goalscoring threat, which would be very desirable to Barcelona.
Sesko has popped up as a candidate for Barcelona on a couple of occasions in the past, but with the lack of a pure number 9 once Lewandowski is phased out, it might be time to get stuck in early and ensure that he can be recruited.
