Liverpool is set to complete the signing of exciting midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai from Bundesliga club, RB Leipzig.
According to sources, the Reds have activated a release clause in Szoboszlai’s contract, which is believed to be in the region of €70 million ($76m).
The 22-year-old is expected to travel to the Merseyside this weekend for a medical, having already agreed personal terms. If the move goes through, he will become Liverpool’s second summer signing after Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister arrived for an initial £35m.
The Hungary international attacking midfielder scored 10 goals and contributed 13 assists in 46 games across all competitions for Leipzig last season.
His imminent exit would be Leipzig’s second big-name departure this summer after Christopher Nkunku joined Chelsea for €60m earlier in the transfer window.
This represents a huge boost to Livierpool’s squad ahead of the upcoming season. Bolstering his midfield has been a top target for Jurgen Klopp this summer, with the likes of Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and James Milner all leaving the club.
