Adam Szalai: Has been a regular source of goals in the Bundesliga this season

The Hungary international has netted 12 times in 22 Bundesliga outings this season, earning him plenty of admiring glances - with Arsenal said to be among those monitoring his progress.

The 25-year-old, who spent three years with Real Madrid's reserve side between 2007 and 2010, makes no secret of the fact that he sees his long-term future away from Mainz.

He is, however, prepared to wait for the right move to arrive, with his contract set to run until 2015.

A big-money offer from a club competing in Europe could be tabled this summer, forcing a decision to be taken, but for now both Szalai and his current employers insist no transfer has been discussed.

"Of course I want to play regularly in competitions like the Europa League and UEFA Champions League," Szalai told Sport-BILD.

"But I am not thinking about a transfer at this point in time. I am unfazed by gossip and rumours."

Mainz general manager Christian Heidel added: "We have not received any enquiries from any clubs regarding Adam Szalai."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
