Agent confirms Arsenal ahead of AC Milan in chasing CL wonderkid

Arsenal have moved ahead of AC Milan in the race to sign Dominik Szoboszlai from Red Bull Salzburg, as confirmed by his agent.

The midfielder has been setting the Champions League alight this term with two goals in his three group games this term, adding to the two he scored in qualifying also.

Those in Switzerland will be well accustomed to his talents, with the midfielder scoring and creating a number of goals already despite only turning 20 years-of-age a week ago.

At this early stage in his career, he has 38 goals and 43 assists to his name, as well as another seven goal contributions in the UEFA Youth League.

It is no surprise that many are singing his praises, and his agent seems to believe that Arsenal are amongst the front runners for his signature.

Mátyás Esterházy was speaking directly to Index.hu to talk about his star asset, who he says is of interest to Arsenal, while previously linked AC Milan have cooled on their interest.

Our side was heavily linked with a move for Lyon’s Houssem Aouar in the summer, with an onus on needing to add creativity and goals to our midfield, and Szoboszlai could well prove to be an exceptional alternative.

The young Hungarian looks like he would be ready to make the step-up to any top division, highlighted by his amazing performances in Europe already this term, and I for one would love to see him at the Emirates.

Should Arsenal prioritise his arrival over Aouar? Is there any doubt that he would fit in in North London?

    I’d take him over Aouar tbh, I think he has more potential and has been performing well since he made the 1st team.

    He’s taller and a cheaper option

      I prefer him too from what I’ve seen of both players.

      Exactly. We don’t want to repeat another Torreira…

    I agree with both the comments above; the young man has real talent, and his height has to be a plus. Also the fact his goals and assists are so balanced make him a real threat as a passer and scorer.
    I hope the interest by Arsenal is serious, and much rather see this young man brought in, and the money saved can be put to better use.

    better for Arsenal to upload Aour for the absence of ozil

    If its true that DS has a $25M
    release cause in his current contract
    (expires in 2022) than Edu should
    be on the next direct flight to
    Salzburg and have this transfer
    wrapped up before the January
    window opens. The young
    Hungarian IMHO is one of the best
    young talents (A more seasoned
    Saka or Martinelli) in all of world
    futbol and would immediately
    bring an offensive skill set that
    AFC desperately lacks atm. He
    would flourish alongside both
    Partey and El Neny in the Arsenal
    midfield.

    If AFC are seriously interested than
    January is the time to strike, for
    the young Hungarian will probably
    find himself in the middle of a
    bidding war from Europes finest
    this summer.

    MAKE IT QUICK.

    I think Aour is a tried and tested player and he is a perfect replacement for Ozil. However we do still have Martinelli returning in New Year who assists as much as he scores. But I think for £25 million is a bargain and if it’s true what I read above then my choice is to sign BOTH players in the January window. That would leave to find one more top class CB to Pair with Gabriel. I think Saliba will do once he gets this transition year under his belt. Maybe we can stick with Mari, Luiz, Chambers and Holding until Saliba is ready. Luiz has put in some excellent performances. Is that in part due to oairing with Gabriel I wonder?

    Szoboszlai is an exceptional talent from what I have read about him. Arsenal should get hold of him asap before other top European Clubs come for him. He will be an assured asset for Arsenal and our future is secure as far as the creativity aspect is concerned. The guy just does not only create but also scores and his hight is an added advantage for scoring headers. Buck up AFC and get this guy asp.
