Hungarian midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, who joined from RB Leipzig, has been in the Liverpool starting lineup since the opening game, and has performed at a high level pressing, dribbling, and passing in many games with 10 men, showing the value more than his £60 million transfer fee.
On the right flank, he combines superbly with Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold, breaking down more than Jordan Henderson ever did. The Egyptian striker, however, is being touted by Saudi Arabia’s Al-Ittihad for a chance to make a move this summer.
Jurgen Klopp has reiterated that he is not for sale, and the owners have no intention of selling at this time. While the players are reportedly positive about staying at Anfield, the Hungarian captain made comments after the game against Aston Villa that could be considered a confirmation that they will stay.
“We speak between each other. He wants to stay here, he wants to be here, he wants to stay with us”
“At the end, he stayed and that’s great news. He’s top player.”
Al-Ittihad is said to be preparing a huge offer, backed by its abundant financial resources. It is also said that they are offering players salaries that are four times his current salaries.
However, as I have said many times, there is no way they will release their ace at this time. No matter how much money is offered, he should not be sold, and Liverpool has no intention of doing so.
If a ludicrous offer arrives in the transfer market next summer, it will be unstoppable, but it looks like he will continue to fight at Anfield this season…
