Liverpool ACTIVATE Dominik Szoboszlai’s release clause

Liverpool have reportedly agreed to pay the £60 million release clause of RB Leipzig midfielder star Dominik Szoboszlai.

According to the Athletic’s David Ornstein, Jurgen Klopp’s side already agreed on personal terms with the Hungarian and told Leipzig that they would pay the player’s release clause.

The 22-year-old emerged as a surprise transfer target for Liverpool, and the Reds moved quickly in sealing the deal after they discovered that his release clause would expire on June 30.

According to reports, Liverpool initially wanted to pay the player’s release clause in part, but Leipzig wanted a full payment of the release clause, and the Premier League side obliged.

Jürgen Klopp values the Hungarian highly and sees him as perfect for his system. Szoboszlai was one of the standout players in the Bundesliga last season, as RB Leipzig finished third in the table behind Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. Last season, he scored ten goals in 48 appearances in all competitions, including aiding them to the German Cup.

Although he is still only 22, the midfielder is very experienced and currently captains the Hungarian national team.

Szoboszlai will become their second summer signing after they priced Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton in a £35m deal.

He will travel to Liverpool in the coming days to complete this medical ahead of his official unveiling.

The Reds could also add Manu Kone and Khepran Thuram to the ranks, with the French youngsters linked to moves to Anfield.
