Pundit Exclusive: Arsenal may hijack signing of £23m attacker after Romano reveal
Arsenal could hijack Dominik Szoboszlai’s £20million-plus imminent move to RB Leipzig.
That is according to former Gunners striker Kevin Campbell, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs about the prospect of the 20-year-old arriving at Emirates Stadium.
Fabrizio Romano reported last Friday that the Hungary international was closing in on a move to Bundesliga side RB Leipzig despite interest from Arsenal and AC Milan.
Szoboszlai is close to join RB Leipzig, confirmed! Three clubs contacted Salzburg to sign him – Arsenal and AC Milan included. Leipzig are leading the race and trying to complete the agreement on next week.
Final decision + announcement before Christmas, as per @Sky_MaxB. 🔴🇭🇺

Football Insider broke the news earlier this month that Leipzig were close to winning the race to the attacker who was also a target of Tottenham.
Mikel Arteta’s side were exploring multiple formulas to try and secure one of Europe’s most coveted talents who has eight goals and 10 assists already this season.
When asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on Szoboszlai’s apparent snub of the Gunners, Campbell said:

“Let’s be brutally honest, we are still an attractive club to join but we are in a difficult position right now.
“The Arsenal move might be one move too soon for him. Going to Leipzig could be a smoother transition for him because Arsenal are having some difficulties.
“If he goes there and plays well then the Arsenal move is a bigger money move. It could potentially still happen. He could come to the Premier League as a bigger money move.
“Szoboszlai will have looked at his situation in a detailed way and even though we are in the Premier League, Leipzig may have been the best move for him right now.”
