Dominik Szoboszlai suggests he still hasn’t made a final decision on his future, amid rumours strongly linking him with a move to RB Leipzig.
Despite plenty of links to Arsenal in recent months, the most recent reports from the likes of Fabrizio Romano suggest Dominik Szoboszlai is close to joining RB Leipzig. However, the player suggests the situation is still ‘ongoing’.
“There are ongoing rumours about many clubs, the newest about Leipzig, but I still have time to think,” Szoboszlai said. “I will make a decision which is best for myself. And I still have important games to play for Salzburg.”
If media reports are to be believed, Szoboszlai will choose Leipzig over interest from across Europe, including Arsenal. Sky sources claimed only the final details are missing to formalise the transfer, and both clubs want to announce it before Christmas.
TheAFCBell report that Sky’s information is valid, adding that Arsenal never made an offer, despite registering their interest in Szoboszlai. The club will continue to follow his development going forward if he joins Leipzig.
David Ornstein previously confirmed Arsenal were considering Szoboszlai. The player has a €25m release clause, which is pretty affordable, but it has to be paid in one go.
If a club plans to pay it in January, Szoboszlai has to give notice by December 15th, which is why it’s no surprise to see the Leipzig news right now.
The Athletic also named Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, AC Milan, and Spurs on the list of clubs reportedly following him before Leipzig’s latest move to secure the deal.
