Dominik Szoboszlai: Liverpool activate £60m release clause of RB Leipzig midfielder as transfer approaches – Sky Sports

RB Leipzig midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai has arrived on Merseyside ahead of undergoing medical treatment after Liverpool activated its £60m release clause on Friday.

Once Szoboszlai made his desire to move to Anfield clear, all other interested clubs, including Newcastle, were removed from the equation.

That led to talks about a payment structure for the release clause with Friday night’s breakthrough.

Personal terms were discussed with the midfielder’s representatives at the start of the week and were never seen as an issue.

There is a clear appreciation for Szoboszlai’s talent and attitude, as well as the Hungarian’s comfort when playing in midfield. His impressive goal-creating stats and ball-carrying ability also fit the profile Liverpool are looking for.

Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella is also a target, but he is leaning towards staying at San Siro due to strong interest from a number of Premier League clubs. That’s what a source said Sky Sports news Barella wants to become a legend at Inter.

Liverpool are experiencing the biggest shakeup of Jurgen Klopp’s tenure at a time when the market – especially for midfielders – has been seriously inflated, and with no Champions League revenue or major player sales to help.

Affordability, availability and a willingness to re-establish Liverpool as a domestic and European force are key factors being assessed.

The Reds secured Alexis Mac Allister for an initial fee of around £35m in early June in the kind of shrewd transfer that had marked them as recruiting leaders.

However, that deal is seen as an anomaly rather than the norm during a summer of rising valuations.

Sky Sports’ Ben Grounds:

“In a summer when Jude Bellingham has become the most expensive British footballer of all time, Declan Rice is asking for over £100 million and Mason Mount is worth over £55 million, Liverpool are looking for bargains.

“The early arrival of World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister fits the player profile Jurgen Klopp identifies at the age of 24.

“Dominik Szoboszlai is of the same ilk. Only 22, the Hungary captain is ripe for further improvement.

“A recent performance against Montenegro in a European Championship qualifier ended goalless and largely forgettable, but it was punctuated by the superior quality of Szoboszlai.

“Comfortable in the tight spaces of that field in Podgorica, the Premier League could be his next destination.

The player’s £60 million release clause expires on Friday and RB Leipzig is bracing for a possible wave of late interest.

“Szoboszlai scored 10 goals last season, provided 13 assists and is ready to leave the Bundesliga. The DFB-Pokal Cup victory over Eintracht Frankfurt felt like a fitting end.

“Liverpool will try to leverage Leipzig’s interest in Fabio Carvalho, but talks about that deal for the 20-year-old have been held separately.

“Szoboszlai could well prove value choice in a seller’s market.”
