Dominik Szoboszlai could be the next high-profile player to leave Red Bull Salzburg.
And that is fantastic news for Arsenal who were first linked with a move for the Hungary international in the summer of 2019 and scouts have been keeping close tabs on the midfielder ever since.
Interest in Szoboszlai is high with AC Milan and Serie A rivals Napoli among his suitors, while Gazzetta Dello Sport claim RB Leipzig are tracking his progress ahead of the January transfer window.

As per Sport Witness, Matyas Esterhazy – the agent of the attacking midfielder – has been discussing interest in his client.
The report states that Esterhazy revealed that Szoboszlai will not be signing for AC Milan despite having been close to an agreement twice and that ‘Arsenal’s interest is real’.
Whilst Esterhazy refused to disclose where the midfielder would end up, confirming that a move to the San Siro for Szoboszlai is unlikely to happen is a massive boost for the Gunners.
But is a January move on the cards for Szoboszlai?
Well, recent history suggests that could be the case as January 2019 proved that Red Bull Salzburg are willing to do business if the price is right.
Just under a year ago the Austrian side sold Erling Haaland and Takumi Minamino to Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool respectively, recouping £24m in the process.
It helped that Salzburg had crashed dropped into the Europa League before the winter window opened, but the aforementioned clubs were quick off the mark to get those deals done.
If Arsenal technical director Edu was to repeat this transfer trick then Szoboszlai could be the Gunners’ first major signing of 2021.
