RB Leipzig midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai has risen up Liverpool’s list of targets this summer, with fans convinced he could become an “output demon”.
Szoboszlai has reportedly held talks with Liverpool representatives this week ahead of a potential move to Anfield.
It comes amid an ongoing search for reinforcements in the middle of the park, with the 22-year-old expected to take up an advanced right-sided role if he joins.
The first story came via The Athletic’s David Ornstein and has since been confirmed by Sky Germany and Sky Sports, the latter saying he has now “moved to Liverpool’s list.”
There is a €70 million (£60.4m) release clause in his contract at Leipzig, but with it set to expire at the end of June, a more favorable deal could be negotiated.
While the likes of Khephren Thuram and Romeo Lavia remain targets as Jurgen Klopp looks to add to the signing of Alexis Mac Allister, Szoboszlai has captured the imagination of fans.
Many saw him as an ideal signing…
If Liverpool sign Dominik Szoboszlai then Liverpool will be in the title race next season.

The right-footed RCM, with ball striking lethality, understands space and can cross from half-space to blast for up to 90 minutes and is also technically astute, and good at tracking back and pressing.
That’s Dominik Szoboszlai if you’re wondering who it is.

Mac Allister + Szoboszlai added 40 G/AI don’t care what you think.

Szoboszlai is a potentially transformational signing. It’s easy to see him becoming an output demon in PL. Trent and Szo on the same team. Ballstriking FC.

Diogo Jota getting service from MacAllister, Szoboszlai, Trent and Salah was a scary sight

“Class act midfielder with huge potential and despite his young age looks very well built and in command way beyond his age…I want him to join.”

Szoboszlai is very energetic, gets a really clean strike on the ball, is very good with the ball at his feet and has got the ceiling to be even better. Klopp will do wonders with him. Really hope LFC pay up and get it done.

It feels like £60.4m is still the smart money…
£60m for Szoboszlai is really… right? Probably actually lower than the going rate for a 22 year old hot property attacking midfielder who captains his country. I don’t understand for a second what scares us about £60m? Where else can we find better value?

Dominik Szoboszlai’s statistics for a player of 22 are very good. You will feel better too.
60m release clause for a talented midfielder who averages 0.61 goals/assists per game. No brainer we should sign him. please @LFC ! Stop taking the piss and do it #LFC https://t.co/kaLkbVGcoT pic.twitter.com/uj22HXdRCS

Szoboszlai at €70m is cheap. 22 years old. Exceptional player. The price may prove prohibitive for this cheap donkey to own, though. Klopp has identified the player. Do this.
— Steve McVeigh (@Boxingscience20) June 28, 2023
It’s been a long time since we’ve had a creative, attacking midfielder there.
For £60m, we should be all over Szoboszlai. Do this.

Mac Allister, Szoboszlai and Thuram for £135m would be the best midfield rebuild we could ask for given FSG’s stinginess when it comes to money.
That would have cost us Bellingham.

Liverpool have been encouraged to do the deal…
A tremendous opportunity for Jorge Schmadtke to show off his negotiating skills here on a short term deal.
With the main task laid out for Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai will be a hugely impressive coup in what appears to be a difficult transition. The clock is ticking.

Big Jorg, if you want an extended contract, bring The Dom

Sign Szoboszlai and Lavia, Liverpool have their new midfield sorted with those and Mac Allister.
Fabinho, Jones, Elliott, Bajcetic as supporting/rotating cast in the medium term.
