ARSENAL are reportedly in advanced negotiations over a deal to bring Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai to the Emirates.
The 19-year-old is understood to be a long-term target of the Gunners, with the club said to be interested in signing him last summer.
And their interest in the Hungarian youngster has remained, with the North Londoners keeping tabs on his performances for the Austrian outfit this term.
It’s been another brilliant campaign for Szoboszlai as he has chipped in with ten goals and 16 assists in 37 games in all competitions.
Such has been his form for Salzburg, a number of clubs are said to be keen on securing his services at the end of the season.
According to French journalist Manu Lonjon, Arsenal face competition from AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign the player.
And he states that Salzburg would be willing to sell their prized asset for a fee in the region of £22million-£27million.
In a series of tweets posted by Lonjon, he said: “PSG asked about Dominik Szoboszlai (RB Salzburg). Profile quite similar to that of Milinkovic-Savic.
“Other big clubs on it. The player’s entourage was probed and not insensitive to interest. Cost 25/30M.”
When asked who else was keen on signing him, Lonjon added: “Arsenal and AC Milan well advanced.”
SunSport recently reported how the Gunners are also battling Leicester in the hunt to bring him to the Premier League.
Should he make the move to Arsenal, he would likely replace Mesut Ozil in the squad, with the German World Cup winner frozen out of the side by Mikel Arteta.
