Remember the name, Benjamin Sesko.

The Slovenian striker was signed by RB Leipzig this summer for £20m, and despite only being 19 years old, the attacker is already showing why Leipzig paid such a fee for his services.

He’s netted four league goals in nine appearances so far this season on loan with RB Salzburg, while he’s also making waves on the international stage.

He scored an absolute banger against Norway last week, and he one-upped himself on Tuesday evening, scoring what will surely be a Puskas Award contender against Sweden.

The commentator describes this goal as being ‘absolutely outrageous’, and he’s not wrong.

The technique, the timing, the power, this goal was an absolute thing of beauty, and while you can’t judge a player off of one or two goals, Sesko’s performacnes over the past seven days have shown exactly why he’s been constantly compared to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Perhaps it’s quite apt that the potential new Ibrahimovic scored the biggest goal of his career to date against Sweden, and we can’t help but feel that Newcastle are now regretting not signing Sesko.

Of course, Newcastle themselves signed their own ‘new Ibrahimovic’ this summer in the shape of Alexander Isak, and while Isak has hit the ground running at St James’ Park, Sesko looks like he could be an absolute superstar in years to come.

Dan Ashworth was reportedly a big fan of Sesko before his move to Leipzig, but sadly, the Magpies couldn’t get this move over the line.

However, with United only set to grow with their newfound status as the richest club in the world, perhaps a move for Sesko could be revisited in a few years’ time if he begins to show signs of reaching his potential.
