Benjamin Šeško's release clause has increased to 65 million euros, making it challenging for AC Milan but manageable for Premier League clubs.

Benjamin Šeško has made history as the youngest player in the Bundesliga to score in seven consecutive matches, showcasing his excellent form ahead of the European Championship. Long linked with a potential transfer, the release clause in his contract with RB Leipzig has now increased following the final round of the season.

Originally set at 50 million euros, Sky Germany reports that due to certain clauses in his contract, the amount has now risen to 65 million euros after Šeško's goal against Eintracht Frankfurt in the last match. This new clause positions the highly sought-after 20-year-old among the top 50 most expensive transfers of all time.

AC Milan, Arsenal, and Chelsea have been closely linked with Šeško. However, the increased clause makes it difficult for Milan, though it is not an obstacle for Premier League clubs. Despite the speculation, Šeško may still choose to remain with the German top-tier team, where he continues to develop following his move from RB Salzburg.

This summer promises to be intriguing for the Slovenian international, with interest from numerous top leagues. The European Championship, starting in a month, could further influence the transfer market and impact Šeško's future.
