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."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
