Who is Dominik Szoboszlai?

20-year-old Dominik Szoboszlai currently plies his trade at RB Salzburg.

The wonderkid is versatile and can be deployed on the left of midfield, in the centre of the park or in attacking midfield.

He put in a strong performance against the Reds at Anfield in the Champions League last season.

Since then he has gained more and more attention with his impressive appearances for the Austrian outfit.

Liverpool linked with Dominik Szoboszlai

90Min has recently claimed that Liverpool are scouting Dominik Szoboszlai.

The Hungarian midfielder has been in fine form for Salzburg this season, assisting six and scoring one in seven league appearances.

He has also scored five in five in the Champions League this term, as well as netting an impressive goal for his country in the recent international break.

SportBild believes that the 20-year-old would be available for around £18m, a snip in today’s market.

Liverpool fans have been excited at the prospect of the Reds bringing in the youngster.

Oxlade-Chamberlain replacement

Given his persistent injury woes, the Reds are going to have to think about replacing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The England midfielder has been missing since pre-season and this isn’t his first long term absence.

He is an extremely talented footballer but we can’t keep waiting for him to put a run of games together.

At 27-years-old, now is the time to cash in on him, Liverpool should sign Dominik Szoboszlai to replace Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Hungarian is similar to The Ox with his versatility and creativity, both often pulling out surging runs forward from midfield.

Given that the Salzburg man is just 20-years-old, he is an ideal age to take the Englishman’s place in the side. We would also likely net a profit given that the youngster could cost as little as £18m.
