RB Salzburg have told Chelsea and Arsenal they can sign Dominik Szoboszlai for just £26million this summer, according to reports.
The highly rated Hungary midfielder is the latest star to emerge from the Austrian side after Erling Haaland and Takumi Minamino were sold to Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool in January.
And Austrian newspaper Salzburger Nachrichten report that the club are resigned to losing the 19-year-old in the next transfer window.
Szoboszlai stepped up after the departures of Haaland and Minamino with seven goals and 11 assists in the second half of the season. Before they left he had netted twice and created three goals.
The left-sided midfielder started his career with Austrian second division side Leifering before he was snapped up by Salzburg at the age of 17.
The club’s sporting director Christoph Freund recently reiterated their desire to keep hold of the rising star, despite interest from Arsenal and Chelsea.
‘With Daka and Mwepu, our plan is to keep them. Our desire is to have only one exit, Hwang.’
AC Milan are also said to have a strong interest in the midfielder and Manchester United and Atletico Madrid are thought to be monitoring the situation.
The youngster’s contribution helped Salzburg claim the Austrian Bundesliga title with ease, finishing 12 points ahead of runners-up Rapid Vienna.
