Arsenal have received a boost in their pursuit of Dominik Szoboszlai after his agent admitted the Red Bull Salzburg star was edging "closer" to the exit.
The 20-year-old has been in impressive form for the Austrian outfit, drawing interested glances from clubs around Europe.

But his agent has made it clear Szoboszlai will only move to a club where he can continue his development with regular first-team opportunities.

“We have belief in our own plans and the vision we had originally is only getting stronger because all of the comments we are reading only prove that we are on the right path.

“Whether it’s in January or next summer, the most important thing is that he goes to a club where he will have a good chance of playing regularly and continuing the learning curve he started in Salzburg – that’s the most important thing for us."
He added: "Obviously, it’s no secret that Dominik is closer now to leaving the Austrian league."
