Paper round-up: Gunners linked with Hungary star Szoboszlai

Arsenal are reportedly keen on RB Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai.

The Hungary international has impressed in Austria and is said to have a £23m release clause in his contract.


The Daily Mirror say Arsenal are “exploring ways to structure a deal” for Szoboszlai, who has scored five goals and provided nine assists in 13 appearances this season.

Arsenal are “exploring means of financing a deal,” the Mirror adds.

Meanwhile, The Sun reports that Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says Willian has been dealt internally following his break in Dubai and that the issue has been resolved.

The Sun also pick up on reports linking Germany international Sami Khedira with a possible move to West Ham from Juventus.

And Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell’s place in the England side is in jeopardy after he limped out of the recent friendly against Belgium, according to the Daily Mail.

The newspaper suggest that England boss Gareth Southgate is disappointed Chilwell came off with a back injury.


Chilwell subsequently sat out the friendly against Iceland but is expected to feature in Chelsea’s game at Newcastle.

The Mail claim this would “harden the suspicion of some in the England camp that he could have played on in Belgium.”

Speaking after the Belgium game, Southgate said that Chilwell “didn’t feel he could carry on.”

However, Blues boss Frank Lampard said on Thursday that he believed the player would be available to play this weekend.

Chilwell was replaced in the England side by Bukayo Saka and the Mail suggest he now faces competition for a place from the Arsenal youngster as well as the likes of Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Kieran Trippier.
