ARSENAL are reportedly hoping to sign Dominik Szoboszlai from RB Salzburg – but could be forced into a buy-to-loan arrangement to secure his services.
The North London giants have been watching the 20-year-old attacking midfielder for years and have failed with moves for him twice before.

Premier League rivals Tottenham are also keen on the Hungarian international.
However, RB Leipzig are looking to secure his signature in January and are willing to let him stay in Austria on loan until the end of the season.
Now Football Insider claims ‘Arsenal are set to explore multiple formulas in their Szoboszlai pursuit’.
And that includes matching Leipzig by letting him initially stay at Salzburg on loan.
Despite his embarrassing miss against Bayern Munich this week, Szoboszlai remains in red-hot form.
He has been deployed in a left-sided midfield role this term, scoring five times and nine assists in 14 appearances.
That includes two in three Champions League matches.
His performances follow on from a brilliant 2019/20 campaign.
