Red Bull Salzburg manager Jesse Marsch believes his star player Dominik Szoboszlai will make a big money move in January, with Arsenal interested.
Szoboszlai has become of the most sought after talents in Europe after impressing in the Austrian Bundesliga.
He’s achieved 14 goal contributions in just 13 games, leading to interest from Arsenal and Real Madrid.
Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus also revealed recently that the German titans were monitoring him.
Szoboszlai’s boss Marsch has now addressed the rumours surrounding the player.
Speaking on the Futbol Podcast, the coach responded to whether Szoboszlai would leave in January: “Yes. The reality is that a guy like Dominik Szoboszlai is likely to have many suitors this winter.
“He’s an incredbile talent, and I say this: When you coach young players, you have to love them and love the fact that they’re going to move on and love that they’re going to have big opportunities to prove themselves and show how good they are.”
It looks like the Gunners will have a good chance of signing their main transfer target in the January window.
The club will be encouraged by Szoboszlai’s relatively low release clause. That stands at £22.5 million, which is good when his potential and the current market are taken into account.
Szoboszlai is touted as a cheaper alternative to Lyon’s Houssem Aouar.
Both manager Mikel Arteta and director Edu are searching for a player to provide creativity in midfield.
Szoboszlai could be the perfect option to link up their midfield with strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette.
Arsenal will have stiff competition, however.
Real have been linked with the player since he scored a stunning goal to send Hungary to the European Championships.
They could beat Arsenal to the signing of Szoboszlai if Edu doesn’t act fast.
