AC Milan face competition from a Serie A rival in their pursuit of Red Bull Salzburg star Dominik Szoboszlai, according to a report.
As MilanNews recently noted, the Hungary international recently came out and dropped a strong hint that the Rossoneri are on his tail, stating: “At this moment I can’t say anything about Milan’s interest.
“If it were to go through, it means that it was destined. The final decision is up to me, but I also have other proposals. I will make the choice I think is best for my career.”
Tuttosport reported that Liverpool, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig are all interested in the €30m-rated midfielder, whose contract with the Austrian club expires in 2022.
It has been claimed that if Ralf Rangnick should arrive, Milan would have a very important joker card to use when negotiating, and Tuttosport added that Ivan Gazidis is ready to sanction a €20m bid.
According to il Messaggero (as cited by Calciomercato.com) though, Lazio are also monitoring the situation surrounding Szoboszlai and could make a move themselves.
Of course, the Roman club would have the card of Champions League football next season to use in talks.
