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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
