But they are set to miss out on the forward, with Bundesliga club RB Leipzig close to agreeing a deal for the striker to join them next summer.

“RB Leipzig are closing on deal to sign Benjamin Sesko for summer 2023,” tweeted transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

“RB Salzburg have rejected the proposal for this summer, Sesko is happy to stay for one more year. #transfers

“Leipzig are now closing on deal for Sesko to join in 2023, could be done this week.”

Leipzig’s bid for Sesko comes as the club looks to wrap up a deal for another striker, Chelsea forward Timo Werner.

Sky Sports News claim Leipzig have agreed a deal to re-sign the forward, who left the German club to join Chelsea in a £45m deal in 2020.

Leipzig have agreed to pay a €30m (£25.3m) plus bonuses for Werner, with the Germany international expected to return to his home country this week to complete the move.

While United look set to miss out on Sesko, the club remain in talks to sign Marko Arnautovic from Bologna.

“I don’t go into names and I think in this preseason 250 players are involved or linked with Man United, so that’s it,” said Ten Hag.

“We have two strikers [Ronaldo and Martial] maybe a third one, [Marcus] Rashford.

“We considered him [Rashford] as a striker, but he had a really good season on the left side and he had two really good chances but the typical nine wasn’t available today.”
