Dominik Szoboszlai is getting closer to Arsenal day by day as transfer talk continues to intensify.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Arsenal are frontrunners to land Red Bull Salzburg attacking midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai.
Szoboszlai has been at Red Bull Salzburg since 2018 when he joined from Liefering. The 19-year-old’s contract at Red Bull Salzburg is set to expire at the end of the 2021/22 campaign.
The attacking midfielder has banged in 10 goals and provided 17 assists in 38 matches for Red Bull Salzburg this term on all fronts.
The 19-year-old has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in Hungary.
The Red Bull Salzburg attacking midfielder has also represented the Hungary at various youth levels before going on to secure 8 senior caps for his country thus far.
Szoboszlai will be high in demand this summer, with him having enjoyed a sublime season for Red Bull Salzburg this term.
Mikel Arteta wants to sign a new attacking midfielder and Szoboszlai is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.
The Gunners have built a reputation for recruiting young talent from within Europe, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.
The 19-year-old is a long-term target of Arsenal and could be a decent addition for Mikel Arteta’s side.
Arsenal are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
Dominik Szoboszlai would provide a good variety to Arsenal’s attack.
According to the report, “Arsenal are in pole position to sign Dominic Szoboszlai, according to reports. The 19-year-old attacking midfielder is viewed as the ideal replacement for Aaron Ramsey. Football.london says the Gunners have been scouting Szoboszlai for over 12 months. And Salzburg’s £25m asking price has made it a realistic deal for the North London club. PSG and AC Milan have also shown an interest in the Hungary international.”
