Arsenal Intensify Interest in Dominik Szoboszlai, RB Leipzig New Favourites


Hungarian has a £23 million release clause on his RB Salzburg contract.

Arsenal after missing out on Houssem Aouar in the summer, are expected to make a move for Dominik Szoboszlai. The 20-year-old Hungarian finished 8th in the Golden boy 2020.

It was widely reported that Arsenal were leading the chase for the Hungarian sensation, but according to Bild RB Salzburg’s sister club, RB Leipzig could land him in January.

Player Profile:

A versatile midfielder can play as an attacking midfielder or as a winger. Szoboszlai is permanently looking for spaces in the left wing to then provide the killer pass to attackers in front of him. This is evident from the heat map from 2019-20 Austrian Bundesliga.

After the sales of Erling Haaland, Takumi Minamino, and Hwang Hee-Chan, it was expected that RB Salzburg will struggle to cope with the loss of talents.

But then Dominik Szoboszlai took over and quickly became the club’s latest superstar. With 4 goals in 5 UEFA Champions League matches and a stunner against Iceland which clinched EURO qualification for Hungary, He has come under the radar of Europe’s biggest clubs.

Dominik Szoboszlai On the Move?

‘Yes. The reality is that a guy like Dominik Szoboszlai is likely to have many suitors this winter.

‘He’s an incredible talent, and I say this: When you coach young players, you have to love them and love the fact that they’re going to move on and love that they’re going to have big opportunities to prove themselves and show how good they are.

‘So let’s see what happens, but I would be surprised if he winds up staying past winter.

After missing out on opportunities for Erling Haaland and Takumi Minamino, it is highly unlikely RB Leipzig will give up easily on the Hungarian sensation. Just like his former teammate Erling Haaland, a move to Bundesliga could prove to be a perfect stepping stone.

Players like Naby Keita, Dayot Upamecano, Laimer, and fellow Hungarian Gulacsi have made the move from Austria to Germany.

Dominik Szoboszlai fits the profile for Arsenal and could immediately improve them. Arsenal’s lack of creativity and goals are a serious cause of concern for Arsenal. Therefore his vision and ability on set-piece could make him a serious player for Arsenal. But a move to North London won’t be easy as rivals Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in the Hungarian.

RB Salzburg are currently last in group A of the UEFA Champions League and needs a major change in fortunes to qualify for knockouts of the UEFA Europa League.
