Gunners linked to Red Bull midfielder
Arsenal are understood to be one of several top clubs keeping tabs on RB Salzburg’s Hungarian midfield starlet Dominik Szoboszlai.
Calciomercato claim the Gunners are among a clutch of clubs to be showing interest in the 18-year-old, who has been likened to Lazio’s Sergei Milinkovic-Savic in style, although he has made just a handful of first-team appearances for the Austrian champions.
Their report suggests Juventus are at the front of the queue with their scouts impressed by Szoboszlai when he scored with a 25-metre free-kick for Hungary Under-19s against Italy in November. Inter Milan, Monaco and Bayern Munich have also been linked with the ex-Videoton and MTK Budapest youngster who cost Salzburg 500,000 euros in 2017.
‘I have heard about the interest, it is a great honour to be communicating with clubs of this level,’ Szoboszlai told Blick this week. ‘For the time being, however, I have only enough things to do in Salzburg. Everything else is done by my agent, luckily I only have to focus on football.’
