Liverpool close to being snubbed as approach for Salzburg star confirmed

The agent of RB Salzburg’s Liverpool-linked midfielder Dominic Szoboszlai has claimed that the Serie A is one of the “most likely” destinations for his in-demand client.

Szoboszlai is one of a bunch of exciting players who started the season with Salzburg and whose stock has risen with performances in the Austrian top flight, the Champions League and the Europa League.

Hee-chan Hwang and Takumi Minamino both scored against Liverpool at Anfield in October, with Hwang leaving Virgil van Dijk on the floor after a piece of skill before Minamino’s measured strike beat Alisson.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp was impressed by Minamino’s strike and the Reds then signed him in January for £7.5million.

Liverpool have since been linked with Hungary international Szoboszlai – who has scored four goals and assisted seven others this term – with a report claiming that they are considering a bid.

Speaking to Tuttomercatoweb, however, the midfielder’s agent did not mention Liverpool when discussing his client’s future.

“Serie A is one of the most likely destinations for him,” the representative said.

The quotes, posted on Twitter by journalist Antonio Vitiello, are followed up with the claim that AC Milan are attempting to sign Szoboszlai and want a discounted deal.

 

As for the potential of a midfield addition for Liverpool in the next transfer window, Adam Lallana is likely to leave upon the expiration of his contract at the end of the season.

Youngster Curtis Jones, meanwhile, announced himself in January with the winning goal against Everton in the FA Cup.

Elsewhere, Klopp has been linked with providing fresh competition to his famed front three, with RB Leipzig’s Timo Werner said to be high up on the German manager’s list of targets.
