The 19-year-old has earned rave reviews for his performances in Austria, scoring five times in the Bundesliga last season, and a number of top clubs around Europe have been scouting him in recent months.

90min revealed in late July that Salzburg were standing firm with their intention to keep Sesko, who has attracted interest from Manchester United, Newcastle and Wolves, as well as Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

However, it is Salzburg's sister club Leipzig who are now close to bringing Sesko to Germany as they continue their aggressive approach to the summer transfer market.

Xaver Schlager and David Raum have already been signed to strengthen their squad, while Timo Werner is also expected to return to the club following a largely unsuccessful spell at Chelsea.

Sesko is the latest young forward to make a name for himself at Salzburg, following in the footsteps of Karim Adeyemi, Erling Haaland and Patson Daka, and in July said he expects to see out the 2022/23 season with his current side.

He told Kronen Zeitung: "I'll definitely stay with Red Bull Salzburg for the whole season, I really like being here."
