Everton eyeing a move for 20-year-old midfielder formerly linked with Arsenal
Premier League outfits Everton FC are reportedly monitoring RB Salzburg midfielder Szoboszlai this month.
Szoboszlai has seen his stock rise very high in the Austrian top-flight league and is off to a flier this season with five goals and nine assists in all outings to his name so far this season.
The creative 20-year-old midfielder hasn’t been on the scene very long but has already chalked up 33 assists in 74 games for Salzburg, as well as 22 goals.
He seems destined for stardom, and he will undoubtedly be watched very carefully from this point on.
From an English football perspective, it’s Arsenal who have probably been linked the most with Szoboszlai, but it seems Everton are also keen and favorites for his signature. Other than Richarlison and James Rodriguez, Carlo Ancelotti is not really blessed with amazing wide options.
Alex Iwobi and Bernard have both left lots to be desired in recent times, and a move for Szoboszlai would certainly be a statement.
With Ancelotti at the helm, the Toffees may have an outside chance of landing Szoboszlai, who is said to have a measly £20 million release clause.
He would be an amazing coup for the Merseyside club, who could potentially boost their top-four hopes with any signing of the star.
Everton, who are now seventh on the Premier League with 13 points from eight matches, travels all the way to Craven Cottage this weekend to take on Fulham F.C for their ninth Premier League match this season.
