Arsenal have reportedly begun talks with the representatives of Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai over a potential transfer in 2021.
The 20-year-old has been linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium as a potential alternative to Lyon's Houssem Aouar, with the Gunners keen to bolster their midfield further after the arrival of Thomas Partey.
With Szoboszlai seen as a younger and likely cheaper signing than Aouar would be, recent reports have claimed that the agent of the RB Salzburg man has held talks with Arsenal over a possible transfer next year.
Szoboszlai's agent Matyas Esterhazy previously admitted that Arsenal do hold an interest in his client and contact has now reportedly been made, with AC Milan believed to be out of the running at this point.
Szoboszlai has been tipped to move to the Emirates following his stellar performances for Salzburg over the past couple of campaigns, with the Hungary international already boasting five goals and nine assists in all competitions this season.
The 20-year-old is contracted to the Austrian side until 2022 and could supposedly be available for a reasonable figure of £22m.
