Arsenal are to send scouts out this week to watch RB Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, who has been on the Gunners’ radar for some time according to a report.
Szoboszlai, 18, has become a key part of the Austrian side and scored in their 6-2 thrashing of Genk in the opening Champions League matchday of the season two weeks ago.
According to Football Insider, Unai Emery‘s side tried to sign the midfielder in the summer and after failing to do so, they remain keen and will scout the player during Salzburg’s tie with Liverpool on Wednesday.
The report adds that Salzburg have said that clubs must pay £15m if they want to sign Szoboszlai, who has scored three times and assisted three others for his club side so far this season.
However, Arsenal also reportedly face competition from the likes of Juventus and Borussia Dortmund, who are also monitoring the midfielder’s progress.
Szoboszlai, a Hungary international, has been capped five times by his country to date.
In other Arsenal news, the club are reportedly willing to allow one midfield star to leave on loan in January.
