Football journalist David Ornstein has shared some information on reported Arsenal transfer target Dominik Szoboszlai. 

This comes after Ornstein recently co-hosted the latest episode of The Athletic’s Ornstein & Chapman Podcast where he spoke about a number of news stories concerning a range of Premier League clubs.

In what month did Mikel Arteta take over as the Arsenal boss?

After it was recently reported that RB Leipzig look set to sign Szoboszlai, Ornstein went on to share contrasting information. (12.10)

He said: “There have been reports that he has opted to join RB Leipzig, which wouldn’t surprise anybody given the path from Salzburg to Leipzig.

“But personally, I’ve not heard that and very recently, I’ve heard that Arsenal still are interested in him, but they do have reservations, which is understandable for a player of his age and stage of development.”

The midfielder, who is currently valued at £22.5 million, joined Salzburg back in the 2018 January transfer window from FC Liefering for an undisclosed fee.

Since then, the 20-year-old has made 81 appearances for Salzburg in which he has managed to score 25 goals and provide 34 assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

Do you think Arsenal will sign Szoboszlai in January?

TIF Thoughts on David Ornstein’s comments on Szoboszlai…

Given how Szoboszlai has managed to score eight goals and provide 10 assists for Salzburg so far this season and that Arsenal have only managed to score two goals in their previous eight Premier League games, this shows that Mikel Arteta’s side could do with someone with Szoboszlai’s attacking abilities in their squad at this moment in time.

However, with Leipzig reportedly interested in the midfielder, the north London club will have to work fast if they want to sign him.
