Arsenal are reportedly looking to sign Dominik Szoboszlai and have provisionally structured a potential deal for his signature, according to The Mirror.
The Gunners have been linked with the Red Bull Salzburg midfielder for a number of months now and, with the January transfer window approaching, are apparently looking to swoop.
Szoboszlai is a rising star of the highest calibre, having already registered 74 senior competitive appearances for the Austrian giants despite his young age.
More impressively, the 20-year-old already has 22 goals and 33 assists, while this season, he’s got five goals and nine assists from just 13 games.
Szoboszlai is also shining for Hungary, having won 12 caps already, scoring three goals, and has the opportunity to feature for his nation at the Euros next summer.
According to The Mirror, Arsenal are hoping to sign Szoboszlai from the Red Bull Arena by meeting his £23million release clause in three yearly instalments, rather than as an up-front sum.
Red Bull Salzburg is a conveyor belt of talent and Szoboszlai is just the latest to be linked with some of Europe’s biggest clubs due to his talent, hard work and potential.
While Arsenal would be an exciting proposition for the player, you’d wonder whether Salzburg would accept a fee split into three when there could potentially be clubs willing to cover the fee in one go.
Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus is “convinced that every top club in Europe has him on their list”, including the Bavarians.
And given Matthaus has compared Szoboszlai to Kai Havertz and even the legendary Ferenc Puskas, this would be little surprise.
