Arsenal are set to miss out on transfer target Dominik Szoboszlai after the Hungary international agreed to join Bundesliga outfit RB Leipzig, say reports.

The Gunners have been heavily linked with a move for the Red Bull Salzburg midfielder, but Sky Sports believes he will join the Austrian side’s sister club in Germany.

Szoboszlai’s, who has a release clause worth around £23 million, will make the move during the January transfer window. 

Bayern Munich and Real Madrid were among the other clubs to show interest in the 20-year-old, who has made a name for himself at club and international level over the last year.

The midfielder has eight goals and nine assists to his name in 19 appearances for Salzburg this season, including strikes in the Champions League group stage against Lokomotiv Moscow and Atletico Madrid.

He also scored a stoppage-time winner for Hungary in their Euro 2020 play-off against Iceland in November to earn his country a spot at next summer’s finals.
