Arsenal fans are think that Dominik Szoboszlai could be signing for them after Red Bull Salzburg boss Jesse Marsch’s comments to the Futbol with Grant Wahl podcast.
Arsenal have been strongly linked with Szoboszlai in recent days, with the Gunners believed to be one of the leading candidates to sign the Hungarian when they January transfer window opens.
Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Arsenal are ‘seriously interested’ in the attacking midfielder.
And Salzburg boss Marsch admits that he would be surprised if his side’s star player, who has a £23 million release clause (AS), remains with his side much longer.
“Yes,” Marsch said, when asked if he expected Szoboszlai to leave in January.
“The reality is that a guy like Dominik Szoboszlai is likely to have many suitors this winter.
“He’s an incredible talent, and I say this: When you coach young players, you have to love them and love the fact that they’re going to move on and love that they’re going to have big opportunities to prove themselves and show how good they are.”
The comments have certainly piqued Arsenal fans’ interest, as they now think that Szoboszlai’s transfer to them has moved closer.
Although Marsch never actually mentioned them, plenty of Arsenal supporters have taken the news as a clue that they could be getting closer and closer to completing the exciting transfer.
If Szoboszlai does join Arsenal then he could offer Mikel Arteta’s side exactly what they have been missing.
The Gunners have lacked creativity and a goalscoring threat from midfielder, but Szoboszlai has been offering that for club and country all season.
The 20-year-old now has five goals and nine assists in 13 appearances across all competitions, which has made him one of the most in-demand players across the whole of Europe.
