PSG rule out signing Arsenal target Szoboszlai
Paris Saint-Germain can’t afford to sign Arsenal target Dominik Szoboszlai in the January transfer window.
The Hungary star, who plays for Red Bull Salzburg, has been heavily linked with a move to the Gunners, with north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur also credited with an interest in the attacking-midfielder.
And it looks like they will have one fewer competitor after PSG assistant coach Zsolt Low – who is also Hungarian – said his club will not make a move for the 20-year-old.
He told Digi Sport, via Blikk: “I would be the happiest, I will tell you honestly, if I had the opportunity to get Dominik and we could work together.

“We have a very big financial loss, hundreds of millions, which is why we could already see (in the summer) it wasn’t typical for the club to buy players for tens of millions.”
Szoboszlai has scored 17 goals and registered 27 assists since the start of last season and has a reported release clause in his contract of £23 million.
Pepe may remain in the cold despite impressing Arteta
Nicolas Pepe may still be left out of the first-team picture at Arsenal despite impressing Mikel Arteta in the Europa League win over Molde on Thursday.
The Ivorian returned to the starting XI after his sending off against Leeds United and marked his comeback with the opening goal in the Gunners’ 3-0 win in Norway.
Pepe was forced to apologise publicly for his rash headbutt on Leeds’ Ezgjan Alioski, an incident which Arteta described as “not acceptable.”
He will not be in Premier League action for a while because of his three-game suspension, and the chances are he will have to work hard to regain his place in the Arsenal side.
