La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has given the go-ahead to sign Benjamin Sesko, and the Rossoneri are confident they can reach an agreement with RB Leipzig.

Sesko has emerged as AC Milan’s leading candidate to replace Olivier Giroud in 2024-25, while the French international will join LAFC at the end of his contract next month. The Rossoneri had been linked with Bologna star Joshua Zirkzee for several weeks, but appear to have changed their priority, opting instead for RB Leipzig star Sesko. AC Milan confident of Sesko deal after Ibrahimovic green light. The latest report from La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Sesko has convinced all the AC Milan directors, including RedBird advisor Ibrahimovic. Sesko is a classic centre-forward with similar characteristics to Ibra. A tall striker with good technical skills. The 20-year-old has scored 16 goals in 40 appearances in all competitions this season, including two in the Champions League. He has a 50 million euro clause, which can be increased to 75 million euros, but AC Milan are convinced that they won’t need to pay the full clause to secure his signature in the summer.
