Romano: Saga set to end as €25m Leipzig, Milan and Arsenal target closes on five-year deal

By Oliver Fisher -

It appears AC Milan and Arsenal have missed out on Red Bull Salzburg playmaker Dominik Szoboszlai, who is very close to joining RB Leipzig according to Fabrizio Romano.

Everything over the past couple of days though has suggested that Szoboszlai is indeed closing in on a move to Leipzig, a transfer that would keep him within the Red Bull ownership group.

Szoboszlai commented on his future over the weekend, telling reporters: “There are ongoing rumours about many clubs, the newest about Leipzig, but I still have time to think. I will make a decision which is best for myself. And I still have important games to play for Salzburg.”

According to the latest from Fabrizio Romano (via RouteOneFootball), Leipzig worked to close the agreement with Szoboszlai over the weekend and it seems as though he is now heading there despite the attempts of Milan and Arsenal.

The deal is incredibly close to being completed and the Hungarian will sign a five-year contract. The feeling is that this week the saga will finish.
