Arsenal are on the trail of RB Salzburg 19-year-old Dominik Szoboszlai, along with a number of other clubs, according to reports in Italy.
Alfredo Pedulla (via TuttoNapoli) claims many of the big names in Europe are after Szoboszlai, including Arsenal. He points to Paris Saint-Germain, AC Milan and Napoli as other clubs on the player’s case.
Szoboszlai is making a fantastic case for himself recently, scoring 11 goals and assisting 17 from midfield for Salzburg.
The teenager still has a couple of years left on his contract, but also reportedly has a release clause of just €24m. Other outlets dispute this, but his valuation is still given as around £25m.
The player’s agent recently told the media a number of Premier League clubs are on his client’s case, though he wouldn’t confirm or deny any specific teams.
Arsenal sent scouts to watch the player on international duty last year. They could certainly do with goals, assists and just generally more creativity from midfield.
Plus, Szoboszlai is a player with a big upside. But it won’t be easy to convince him to join over the competition.
