Arsenal and Chelsea could miss out on signing RB Leipzig striker Benjamin Sesko during the summer transfer window.

The Slovenian had a good second half to the season with the Bundesliga outfit. He ended the campaign with 18 goals to his name.

His release clause was reportedly at €45m in January, but that has apparently increased to €64m amid his goal contributions.

The fee is still affordable for the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea, but Leipzig are aiming to keep Sesko for another campaign.

The German outfit will propose an improved contract with a new release clause. They remain hopeful of keeping Sesko.

Sesko has yet to speak regarding his future, but he is expected to make a decision following the European Championship.

Arsenal and Chelsea will be hoping that the striker opts for a new challenge rather than staying put with the German outfit.

The Gunners would be favourites to sign him in that case, considering they have the guarantee of Champions League football.
