“After Jude Bellingham became the most expensive British footballer of all time, Declan Rice commanded a fee of £100m, and Mason Mount was valued at over £55m, Liverpool are searching for bargains.
“The early arrival of World Cup winner Alexis MacAllister fits Jurgen Klopp’s player profile at 24.
“Dominik Szoboszlai – with a £60m release clause – is of the same mould. Still only 22, the Hungary captain is ripe for improvement.
A recent appearance against Montenegro in a European qualifier ended goalless and largely forgettable, but punctuated by Szoboszlai’s superior quality.
“Comfortable in the tight spaces of that pitch in Podgorica, the Premier League could be his next destination.
“Szoboszlai netted 10 goals, recorded 13 assists last season and is ready to leave the Bundesliga side. The win in the DFB-Pokal Cup over Eintracht Frankfurt felt fitting.
“Leipzig is interested in Fabio Carvalho, but negotiations have been separate for that 20-year-old.
“Set-piece specialist Szoboszlai could prove a value pick in a sellers’ market.”
