Liverpool rarely make mistakes in the transfer market. The Reds recruit smartly, identifying top talents and bringing them in at bargain prices. Michael Edwards has been at the forefront of our successful recruitment strategy. There is an opportunity coming up that he cannot miss out on. Here are three reasons why Liverpool should sign Dominik Szoboszlai by activating his £23m release clause.
Liverpool bagging Dominik Szoboszlai for £23m would be an absolute bargain.
The 20-year-old is one of the most talked about, one of the most coveted youngsters around.
The youngster has been a leading creative light for Red Bull Salzburg in the past couple of years.
He already has four goals and ten assists in 10 games in the league this season. Last term he managed 14 assists and nine goals in the league.
Given his age and mature creative performances, £23m would be a steal.
Fitness issues in midfield
Whilst the Liverpool midfield is stacked with talent, some of our most talented middle men are too frequently injured.
Szoboszlai has had just one injury during his time at Salzburg, according to Transfermarkt.
We can’t keep relying on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita to stay fit for prolonged periods.
Dominik Szoboszlai having such a low release clause means he’d be ideal for coming into the midfield and rotating in and out of the squad for these lengthy periods we are without Nabs and The Ox.
Young and full of potential
Dominik Szoboszlai is just 20-years-old, he has over a decade left in the game.
The Reds like to buy players with potential so that their market value will increase over time.
Given his age and performances, particularly his strong showings in the Champions League and at international level, we can be certain that his value will increase from his £23m release clause.
There is also the consideration that he is good enough to rotate in and out of the side now, imagine the level he could be at in five or six years time.
Liverpool need to sign Dominik Szoboszlai by paying his release clause, we can’t miss the boat.
