Fabrizio Romano provided an update on Arsenal’s interest in Dominik Szoboszlai this week, confirming they’re following the player.
Speaking on the Here We Go podcast, Fabrizio Romano confirmed recent reports that Arsenal are long-term admirers of RB Salzburg’s Dominik Szoboszlai.
At this stage, they haven’t made a move. However, the player loves the Premier League, and Arsenal are considering the situation as they look to sign a player like Szoboszlai or Houssem Aouar.
“The situation is that Arsenal [have been] following Szoboszlai [for] years,” Romano said. “So, what we [can] say is that Arsenal’s scouting [department] are looking at the player. At the moment, there are no negotiations with [Salzburg].
“He’s in love with the Premier League, so let’s see what Arsenal will decide. What I’m told is that Arsenal are looking to sign this kind of player. They were looking [at Houssem] Aouar, they are now considering the situation of Szoboszlai.
“So, let’s see what will happen next summer or [in] January, but Arsenal are following the player.”
Earlier this week, Szososzlai’s agent Matyas Esterhazy confirmed “Arsenal’s interest is real”. Esterhazy claims Szoboszlai won’t be signing for AC Milan, but Index (via Sport Witness) suggest a move to a German-speaking country is still likely.
German outlet TZ report that Szoboszlai has a release clause of €25m lasting until the summer of 2022, when his contract ends. They mention Arsenal as one of the clubs with a potential interest in activating it, along with a number of others.
The 20-year-old has five goals and eight assists in 12 games already this season, including two goals in three Champions League appearances.
