Big boost for Milan and Arsenal as agent of €25m Hungary star denies agreement with Leipzig

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan and other reported potential suitors have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Red Bull Salzburg star Dominik Szoboszlai.

Yesterday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reported that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara have already cast their minds towards next summer and are thinking of two possible options to reinforce the attacking department too.

The topical name is that of Szoboszlai, a player the club have tried to sign already and who has a €25m release clause, with Milan apparently preparing an assault for June.

However, newspaper Bild (via MilanNews) remain adamant that Bundesliga powerhouses Leipzig are pushing very hard to try and sign the player, who of course plays for a club that they are somewhat affiliated with due to the Red Bull ownership.

According to Calciomercato.com reporter Daniele Longo on Twitter, Szoboszlai’s agent has now spoken out about the future of his client and denied an agreement with RB Leipzig.

“Dominik has no deal with Leipzig or any other club,” he said.

Calciomercato.com recently reported that Juventus have been following and admiring him, while Inter, Arsenal and some other English and Spanish clubs are keen.
