Arsenal receive bad news in Dominik Szoboszlai transfer pursuit as duo join race

Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent months, is also being tracked by AC Milan and RB Leipzig ahead of the January transfer window.

The 20-year-old has been a revelation for the Austrian outfit this season, having created five goals in just six league appearances. Arsenal were touted as a possible destination for the player during the summer transfer window, but ultimately any move failed to materialise.

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, the Gunners may face a battle for his signature should they decide to bid in January with Milan and RB Leipzig said to be harbouring serious interest.

The Serie A giants have reportedly made previous offers for Szoboszlai’s services which were turned down by Salzburg, who have now slapped a €25 million (£22.56m) price tag on their star man.

Meanwhile, Leipzig are a sister club of the Austrian side due to their common ownership by Red Bull, and may be the front runners to capture his signature.

Dayot Upamecano and Naby Keita are just two of the players to make the switch from Austria to Germany in this way, with both players going on to enjoy successful careers to date. Arsenal are said to be considering Szoboszlai as a cheaper alternative to summer target Houssem Aouar.
