RB Leipzig enter the battle for €25m-rated Arsenal transfer target

The London giants may well fancy signing RB Salzburg attacker Dominik Szoboszlai, but they face a major battle to land him. Earlier this month, Fabrizio Romano admitted that Arsenal are keen to sign Dominik. He allegedly isn’t top of Gunners list as they pursue a creative midfielder, but he represents an alternative option to Lyon’s Houssem Aouar.

The London giants had ‘fallen back in the race’ for Hungary international over the summer, but stay keen on signing him. If the London giants are eyeing a January move, then reports emerging from Germany over the last week could be something of a concern.

RB Leipzig want to sign the Hungarian midfielder, viewing him as a potential addition for 2021 and their interest has to be a worry for the London giants.

Leipzig and Salzburg are sister clubs under the Red Bull brand, meaning footballers move pretty freely between the two clubs see cases such as Dayot Upamecano, Naby Keita, Peter Gulacsi, Amadou Haidara, Hannes Wolf and, most recently, Hwang Hee-chan.

That established relationship between the two teams may instantly make RB Leipzig favourites to land Dominik, with a move to Germany surely appealing given how Salzburg stars have impressed at Leipzig. Dominik has bagged three goals and three assists in seven games this season, having racked up 12 goals and 18 assists last campaign.
