Arsenal are keeping a close eye on Red Bull Salzburg attacker Dominik Szoboszlai, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Arsenal are reportedly keeping a close eye on Red Bull Salzburg's Dominik Szoboszlai as they weigh up a bid for the in-form attacker.

The 20-year-old has been in excellent form for his Austrian club during the 2020-21 campaign, scoring five times and providing seven assists in 10 appearances in all competitions.

Arsenal were linked with the Hungary international over the summer, but the transfer window closed with the left-sided attacker still with Salzburg.

According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the Gunners have been following Szoboszlai for "years" and are now considering the youngster as an alternative to Lyon's Houssem Aouar.

"The situation is that Arsenal [have been] following Szoboszlai [for] years," Romano said on his Here We Go podcast. "So, what we [can] say is that Arsenal's scouting [department] are looking at the player. At the moment, there are no negotiations with [Salzburg].

"There are many clubs interested – he was one step away from joining AC Milan last summer. We will see [in] January, we will see next summer, what [Salzburg] will decide to do – because Szoboszlai wants to play in a top league. He's in love with the Premier League, so let's see what Arsenal will decide.

"What I'm told is that Arsenal are looking to sign this kind of player. They were looking [at Houssem] Aouar, they are now considering the situation of Szoboszlai. So, let's see what will happen next summer or [in] January, but Arsenal are following the player."

Szoboszlai has scored 22 goals and registered 31 assists in 71 outings for his current side.
