Transfer news Arsenal: RB Salzburg midfielder, Dominik Szoboszlai, has reportedly rejected a move to Arsenal and instead will sign for Salzburg brother club RB Leipzig, according to Sky Germany.
The 20-year-old has emerged as one of the most in-demand playmakers in Europe following his impressive performances for the Austrian champions.
Arsenal were among the clubs interested in Szoboszlai, with Mikel Arteta still keen to strengthen his midfield options with more creativity.
But, Szoboszlai has now made the decision to join Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in the January transfer window.
Salzburg’s sporting director, Christoph Freund, has been in Leipzig this week to negotiate the deal and the deal will be made official before Christmas.
RB Leipzig are now due to pay the €25million release clause within two weeks of it being activated and Salzburg will receive a 20 per cent sell-on fee if Szoboszlai leaves RB Leipzig.
Arteta will now have to look elsewhere as he continues to reinforce his dream team at the London club.
