Arsenal are interested in 18-year-old Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, and they’ve been following him for a long time, according to reports.
Spanish outlet AS report that Arsenal are among several clubs interested in the midfielder. Bayern Munich, Juventus and Inter Milan are the other three looking to lure the teenager away from his current contract with Salzburg lasting to 2021.
According to AS, the price for Szoboszlai would be around €10m, so he certainly wouldn’t be out of Arsenal’s summer price range. However, the question is whether The Gunners think he’s worth the investment.
Despite his age, Szoboszlai already has a good physical presence, standing at around 6’1″. He’s been extremely effective in front of goal with Salzburg’s feeder club FC Liefering as well, scoring six goals and providing four assists in just nine games. His form earned him a Salzburg call up in the ÖFB-Cup, where he scored another goal and assist.
Since then, Szoboszlai’s started to get chances in Salzburg’s Austrian Bundesliga matches, making four substitute appearances towards the end of the year. We’ll see how he continues to progress in the remaining months of the season.
