Red Bull Salzburg sensation Szoboszlai flattered by Arsenal, Juventus interest

Red Bull Salzburg sensation Dominik Szoboszlai says he's flattered by interest from the likes of Juventus and Arsenal.

The Hungarian midfielder, 18, describes himself as a mix between Lazio's and Real Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos.

Having just signed a new contract with Salzburg, Szoboszlai is settled. But he admits he one day hopes to play for a big club.

"A lot of people say that my style of play is close to Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Toni Kroos. It is a great thing to hear that," said Szoboszlai.

"There has been a lot of speculation recently [about my future]. Of course, it is a huge honour to be linked with giant clubs like Juventus, Bayern or Arsenal, but at this stage of my career, I only focus on my current duties and my development at Salzburg.

"I am part of a great club and a very successful team. My goal is to earn a regular spot in the midfield. Everything else can only come after that. Every player wants to play in one of the top leagues and the Champions League one day.

"I am not an exception, but there is a lot of work ahead of me to achieve that. I am in a good way, but the journey has only just begun."
