Dominik Szoboszlai has emerged as a potential target for Liverpool, who are already looking to Mason Mount alternatives.
According to Daniel Nielson, Liverpool might consider moving for Dominik Szoboszlai. The £45 million-rated Bundesliga star could have a long list of suitors in the summer but will not force his way out of RB Leipzig.
Dominik Szoboszlai was always considered a future star when he joined RB Leipzig from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2021. He has continually seen his rise in stature following impressive performances for the club in the league and Europe.
This season, he has had 22 goal contributions, which has put his name forward on the list of many top clubs. Chelsea and Newcastle United have shown an interest previously and could come into the frame if they cannot find agreements with their top targets.
In Newcastle United’s case, they might chase James Maddison as a top target. The Leicester City man will have many other suitors, meaning the Magpies may lose out as they may not want to join a bidding war. In that scenario, Szoboszlai could become their alternative.
Been told that Szoboszlai is also a potential target for Liverpool as they look for Mount alternatives to avoid any major bidding wars. Would likely cost £45m + bonuses, with player ready to make the switch to Merseyside, however won't force any moves. He is happy at Leipzig#LFC

Similarly, Liverpool are now linked with a move for the 22-year-old Leipzig star. The Hungarian possesses all the attributes to succeed in the Premier League, and the Merseysiders’ high-octane style will certainly suit the £45 million-rated star.
Journalist Daniel Nielson now puts Liverpool firmly in the chase for the £45 million-rated Bundesliga star. He reckons the Reds will look at the Hungarian as an alternative to Mason Mount, their prime target for a few months.
Liverpool had done the groundwork to sign Mount if he became available for a transfer in the summer. Chelsea’s financial balancing could see them sell the 24-year-old, who might explore his options in the upcoming window. He will have a year left on his deal, thus opening the door for many clubs to stake their claim.
While incoming Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino wants the club to prioritise a new contract for Mount, the attacking midfielder may consider taking up a new challenge. As per recent stories, Manchester United and Arsenal are also in the hunt, with the Red Devils reportedly willing to pay big.
There was a suggestion that Mount would rather join Liverpool instead of signing a new deal at Chelsea, which gave the Merseysiders some hope. Klopp will only consider the 24-year-old if the price is right, as they do not want to participate in a bidding war.
Hence, the links to Szoboszlai may have some weightage ahead of the summer. The £45 million-rated Bundesliga star could fit into Klopp’s plans properly, but will his price tag suit Liverpool? He still has three years left on his current deal and is open to joining a bigger club like the Merseysiders.
While he may want to leave, Szoboszlai will not force a move through as he remains happy at Leipzig. The Reds will explore the idea in the coming days and possibly sit down with the German club to understand an approach.
