ARSENAL are the leading candidates to sign Red Bull Salzburg star Dominik Szoboszlai.
And bookmakers Paddy Power are backing Mikel Arteta and Co. to get the job done in January having priced them as 6/4 favourites.

But several other clubs are queuing up for the versatile attacking midfielder.
The biggest competition for his signature, according to the bookies, is north London rivals Tottenham at 5/1.
Manchester United come next at 9/1 with Manchester City a 16/1 chance and Real Madrid are the outsiders at 25s.

The 20-year-old has been linked with just about every club under the sun.
And a quick glance at his burgeoning highlights reel will explain why.
Szoboszlai has scored 22 goals and provided 33 assists in 76 appearances for the Austrian heavyweights.

And with the youngster’s contract due to expire in June 2022 – there’s a good chance Salzburg will cash in soon.
The club’s sporting director Christoph Freund said: “Of course, we would like to have a player like him as long as possible at our club.
“But on the other hand it is also healthy to make the next step at the right time.”
Reports claim Arsenal are weighing up a January deal that would see Szoboszlai loaned back to Salzburg for the remainder of the season.
A similar tactic employed by Chelsea when signing Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Rising starlet Dominik Szoboszlai could be the first piece of Arsenal’s creative puzzle, or he could be that one that gets lost under the sofa when you’re doing a jigsaw.
“He’s short-priced to join the Gunners in January, though a shift to big rivals Spurs isn’t entirely off the cards according to the odds, either.”
