Dominik Szoboszlai had been a target for Newcastle but once his intention to move to Anfield became clear it removed all other interested parties from the equation; the midfielder completed his medical earlier on Sunday on Merseyside; he is Liverpool’s second signing of the summer
Newcastle had also been interested in the 22-year-old midfielder, but once Szoboszlai made clear his desire to move to Anfield, it removed all other interested parties from the equation.
Szoboszlai underwent a medical on Merseyside on Saturday and Sunday and, subject to a work permit, he will become Liverpool’s second signing of the summer after the arrival of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton for an initial £35m.
