Arsenal scouting RB Salzburg youngster Dominik Szoboszlai as Granit Xhaka replacement.
Arsenal seems to be planning for life without Granit Xhaka after the Swiss midfielder fell out with the club’s fans.
Xhaka has been out of the side since his falling out with the fans against Crystal Palace and he may have played his last game for the Gunners.
Reports from the Daily Mail claim that the Gunners have been scouting RB Salzburg star, Dominik Szoboszlai as a replacement for Xhaka.
Szoboszlai has been one of the impressive members of the Salzburg side that have lit up the Champions League and Austrian Bundesliga this season.
Szoboszlai has played 16 games for them in all competitions this season and he has netted four times.
His form has attracted the attention of Europe’s top sides, but Arsenal is hopeful that the promise of more playing time would help them get his signature ahead of his other suitors.
The report claims that the Gunners have made the 19-year-old one of the candidates who could take Xhaka’s spot in their team.
Xhaka has been left disappointed with the way the club handled his problem with the fans and appeared to have been angered that he was stripped of the captain’s armband.
It has to be said that Salzburg has that look of Ajax last season in terms of a very exciting young side giving the big boys a serious run for their money.
Put it this way, Arsenal could do a whole lot worse than signing one or two of these huge talents.
