Benjamin Šeško's recent goal-scoring spree in the Bundesliga has generated significant interest, with top European clubs keen on securing his services.

As reported by Nogomania, Šeško's potential move has been a hot topic, with the latest rumors suggesting a €65 million release clause in his contract. Clubs like Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea, and AC Milan are currently the most interested in the Slovenian international.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, known for his close connections to Šeško's camp, revealed that RB Leipzig is planning to react to the recent developments and keep their star forward. According to Romano, Leipzig has initiated contact with Šeško’s agent, aiming to negotiate a new contract. This would not only mean a salary increase for Šeško but also a more central role in the team managed by Marco Rose.

Remaining at Leipzig for another season offers Šeško a stable and familiar environment, providing an opportunity to further build on his impressive performances this year. Leipzig holds significant bargaining power, but the question remains whether they can withstand the aggressive and lucrative offers from other clubs.

Šeško’s agent has been courted by Premier League clubs, who have been inviting him to matches, while AC Milan has been pursuing a media blitz to capture the player’s attention. Leipzig, however, is keen to leverage their current position and secure a new deal that would enhance Šeško’s role and commitment to the club.

Despite Leipzig's strategic moves, they could find themselves powerless if the offers from interested clubs become too attractive to resist.
