Benjamin Šeško is set to make a crucial decision regarding his future within the next 24 hours, choosing between continuing his development at Leipzig or seizing a life-changing opportunity in the Premier League.

Benjamin Šeško has had an intense and exhausting few weeks, with constant rumors about a summer transfer, particularly linking him with a move to the English Premier League.

According to our information, at least three Premier League clubs are willing to pay his release clause of €65 million. Šeško has been made aware of the interest and has been presented with all the project details. Now, he faces a significant dilemma: stay at Leipzig and continue his development under coach Marco Rose, or follow a life-changing opportunity and join one of the giants in the world's strongest league?

Šeško's career path has been one of steady development, progressing through Domžale, Salzburg, and Leipzig. Given that he has never sought shortcuts and has always pursued his sporting goals, Leipzig remains optimistic about retaining him. However, this means the German club must offer him a significantly better contract and meet other demands to fend off the wealthier and more star-studded competition from the Premier League.

Ultimately, the final decision will rest with Šeško, who is currently heading to Germany with his national team teammates. Barring any unforeseen events, he is expected to announce his decision by this evening or tomorrow. The Šeško camp had initially aimed to resolve his future before Slovenia's first match at Euro 2024, and it looks like they will achieve this goal.
