According to the Mirror, Arsenal are reportedly interested in Red Bull Salzburg's Dominik Szoboszlai. Szoboszlai is considered one of the best young prospects in Europe right now and his performances for club and country have piqued the interest of top clubs.
Dominik Szoboszlai has impressed with his performances for Red Bull Salzburg. Following the departures of Takumi Minamino and Erling Braut Haaland, he has become one of the most important players at the club.
Bayern Munich and Arsenal join AC Milan and Real Madrid in race for Szoboszlai
The 20-year old has been linked with Arsenal in the past, with the Gunners' management said to be a fan of the player. However, acquiring him won't be easy. Real Madrid, AC Milan and Bayern Munich are also interested in signing the Hungary international, who recently scored a stunning goal for his country.
Arsenal are in need of midfield reinforcements this season. Having failed to sign Lyon's Houssem Aouar in the summer, there is a general admission that the Arsenal midfield has lacked creativity.
Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil, renowned for his creative prowess, has been frozen out by not being included in Arsenal's Europa League and Premier League squads this season.
Szoboszlai could add energy and dynamism to Arsenal's midfield and is capable of playing further forward if needed. Szoboszlai's performances have also resulted in Real Madrid and Bayern Munich taking notice of the player, and it would be hard for him to turn down either club.
Having scored a last-minute goal in the latest international break to ensure Hungary qualified for the Euros, Szoboszlai's stock has never been higher than it is right now.
If Arsenal do sign him, it would further emphasize the belief that the Gunners' hierarchy have in manager Mikel Arteta's project. Signing him ahead of AC Milan, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid would also be a major confidence boost for Arsenal.
