BREAKING: Liverpool ‘trigger release clause to sign RB Leipzig star Dominik Szoboszlai’

Dominik Szoboszlai’s release clause from RB Leipzig has reportedly been activated by Liverpool in order to sign him.

In recent days, the Reds have been trying to reach an agreement to sign the 22-year-old.

The situation has improved since Wednesday, when David Ornstein of The Athletic reported that it seemed like a deal would be’very difficult’ to complete.

According to Philipp Hinze of Sky Germany, the player has a €70 million release clause that will automatically expire after June 30.

Liverpool have been ‘pushing ahead’ to get the deal done, and according to Fabrizio Romano, they have taken another step closer.

Liverpool ‘trigger Szoboszlai release clause’

Romano has reported that the Reds have indeed triggered the full €70 million release clause to sign the Hungary international, with personal terms also agreed between the player and Liverpool.

He tweeted: “Dominik Szoboszlai to Liverpool, here we go! Understand RB Leipzig are now informed that Liverpool have triggered the release clause.

The completed and upcoming €70 million agreement. Personal arrangements agreed upon; Szobo will shortly be prepared for medical exams. Huge addition for LFC.

Upon completion of the transfer, the 22-year-old will join Liverpool as their second summer acquisition after they signed Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton earlier in June.

In the club’s history, he would rank after Virgil van Dijk, Alisson Becker, and Darwin Nunez as the fourth-most costly signing.
In addition, Szoboszlai would join goalkeepers Adam Bogdan and Istvan Kozma as the third member of the Hungarian national team to play for Liverpool in a competitive game.

The offensive midfielder has contributed 14 goals in each of his previous two Bundesliga campaigns. He can also play in wide areas and as a front three player.

He is set to become the latest puzzle piece for Jurgen Klopp as the German boss looks to reshape his midfield following the departures of James Milner, Arthur Melo, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
