Dominik Szoboszlai is on the radar of Liverpool as they are looking forward to a new signing in the summer window. Liverpool’s current squad seems to be very well-balanced at the moment.

Jurgen Klopp has one of the most fierce attacking lineups in Europe. However, there is always room for changes to be made.

As a result, Liverpool might target midfield as the area to be reinforced in the summer transfer window.

Since the departure of Georginio Wijnaldum, Liverpool is missing dominance in the position. However, that situation could be sorted by the end of the season.

The futures of James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keïta are all uncertain at the moment. Milner’s contract is expiring this summer and the latter two are set to enter the last year of their deals.

As a result, there is a strong chance of one or two of the players will be leaving the club. So, the probable that is coming up is of Hungarian international, Dominik Szoboszlai.

Dominik Szoboszlai on Klopp

Liverpool might have an advantage in any potential transfer race for the midfielder. In 2020, Szoboszlai was asked which coach he wanted to work with the most in his career on the Csisztu Youtube Channel. He had an emphatic response.

“I really like Klopp. The kind of human being he is. The way he can inspire his players is unbelievable. Even when they have nothing, his players can achieve anything. For me he is the best manager.”

Meanwhile, the Hungarian midfielder is a player who would be an ideal addition to the Liverpool squad. His creativity is a huge asset, and it is an area where Liverpool has struggled in the absence of key players this season.

He is also a midfielder who is good with the ball and has a great zest of energy. He averages over 20 pressures per 90 in the Bundesliga this season and ranks in the 98th percentile for successful pressures with 7.56 per 90. This means he would be more than capable of fitting into Klopp’s tactics.

Signing probability

The 21-year old has recently been out of favour with the club’s new coach Dominic Tedesco. Meanwhile, if Tedesco is not keen on the midfielder, RB Leipzig may sell Szoboszlai this summer.

It’s a chance Liverpool may be tempted to get the Hungarian this summer.

The RB Leipzig midfielder has scored eight goals and registered six assists already this season in 27 games.

According to a CIES study, Dominik Szoboszlai has been recently revealed to be the player most similar to Kevin de Bruyne in playing style in Europe’s top five leagues conducted by the Football Observatory.
