Monday's Arsenal transfer talk news roundup: Dominik Szoboszlai, Mesut Ozil, Ibrahima Konate

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Arsenal on Monday, December 7.

The summer transfer window has now closed, with Arsenal pulling off one of the standout deals on deadline day.

The Gunners triggered the release clause of Thomas Partey to cap off a relatively busy summer which saw the likes of Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes join too, and attention will now begin to turn to January.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings at the Emirates Stadium.

Monday morning's Arsenal transfer talk news roundup:

Real Madrid 'contact Dominik Szoboszlai over January move'

Real Madrid are reportedly prepared to get a deal for Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai over the line in January.

The financial issues at the Bernabeu have been well documented, resulting in club officials being keen to reduce the wage bill as soon as possible.

However, the team's struggles under Zinedine Zidane this season could result in movement in the transfer market, particularly if they are able to make more sales.

According to Bild, Real want to win the race to sign Szoboszlai, who is said to be available for £18m during the next transfer window.

The report claims that Zidane has already held a phone call with the Hungary international in a bid to convince the playmaker to move to La Liga.

Arsenal, AC Milan and RB Leipzig have also been heavily linked with an approach for the in-form 20-year-old.

Arsenal's Mesut Ozil 'confident of joining another top club'

Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil reportedly believes that he will still be able to secure a move to another top European club despite being frozen out in North London.

The ex-Germany international has been left out of Mikel Arteta's Premier League and Europa League squads - a decision which has raised eyebrows given Arsenal's distinct lack of creativity at the minute.

However, despite his suboptimal situation at the Emirates Stadium, Ozil is set to stay put in North London until his contract runs out in the summer of 2021.

According to The Mirror, Ozil still holds the belief that he can seek out an attractive move to another European club, although the playmaker would reportedly have to take a substantial pay cut for that to happen.

The report claims that Ozil could very well remain in the Premier League, but a move to Spain, Italy or the MLS could also be a realistic option for the 32-year-old in the not-so-distant future.

Ozil has registered 44 goals in 254 matches for the Gunners since his 2013 arrival from Real Madrid.
