Dominik Szolobszlai’s agent details required terms to Arsenal for January move

The agent of RB Salzburg star Dominik Szoboszlai says potential suitors like Arsenal must offer the player regular minutes if they want to sign him.

Szoboszlai is one of the most wanted young players in Europe after an impressive start to the season with Salzburg.

The Gunners are among a number of clubs who have been keeping a close eye on Szoboszlai and he could be available for as little as £22million.

And his agent Esterhazy Matyas says they have a plan in place to manage the 20-year-old and outlined what they require.

"We’re seeing that every time he has a good game, which fortunately is happening quite often, the rumours are getting stronger," he told DIGI Sport’s Sport 24.

"However, our strategy isn’t going to change because of one or two games.

"We have belief in our own plans and the vision we had originally is only getting stronger because all of the comments we are reading only prove that we are on the right path.

"Whether it’s in January or next summer, the most important thing is that he goes to a club where he will have a good chance of playing regularly and continuing the learning curve he started in Salzburg – that’s the most important thing for us,’ he added.

"Obviously, it’s no secret that Dominik is closer now to leaving the Austrian league."

Meanwhile, former Arsenal goalkeeper Jens Lehmann has revealed he still harbours regrets over his sending off in the 2006 Champions League final against Barcelona.

The German was sent off after just 18 minutes for bringing down Samuel Eto'o but Arsenal took the lead through a header by Sol Campbell before Barcelona won the match with two late goals.

"No, [it doesn't get easier with time],” Lehmann said. “You regret it more and more. It was in the spur of the moment and it just happened. It was probably down to the fact that we hadn't conceded any goals and I just wanted to get going. I should have dropped off a little bit more but I didn't know how fast [Samuel] Eto'o was. It was the first time I played against him.

"I was very sorry because Robert Pires was taken off. I went to sit in the stands and my sons came to me and we were very, very sad. We could have got a fantastic [result] at the end but Juliano Belletti scored. I met him a couple of years ago and he had good memories of me.

"It was very unfortunate circumstances but have you realised that after that red card, nobody else had been sent off in a final unless it was the 90th minute and the score was already clear and decided. During the major part of the game, nobody has been sent off.”
