According to Football.london, Tottenham are said to be one of the clubs interested in Dominik Szoboszlai.

The player is highly expected to make a move in January to one of the aforementioned clubs.

Profile

Dominik Szoboszlai started his professional career at Liefering in the Austrian second-tier before enjoying a breakthrough at heavyweights Red Bull Salzburg during the 2018-19 season.

Szoboszlai has once again hit the ground running this term, registering 6 goals and 9 assists in 16 appearances (h/t Transfermarkt). He represented Hungary across U-17, U-19, and U-21 levels before making his senior international debut in 2019. He has since accumulated 12 caps.

Szoboszlai would be a good fit at Tottenham

This season, Spurs have proved that if you back the manager with the right signings, he will eventually deliver the results. Mourinho was given the players he needed and more in the last summer transfer market. The result? Spurs are currently at the top of the table.

However, one of the areas that does look like it needs strengthening is the attacking midfield. While this wouldn’t be a requirement usually, with Dele Alli falling out of favor with Mourinho, his future is looking increasingly uncertain by the day. Without Alli, the side lacks a midfielder who can create goals for the forwards and score some himself.

This is where someone like Dominik Szoboszlai comes in. The Hungarian international has already racked up some crazy numbers in terms of goals and assists in Austria. His performances in the Champions League against Napoli and Liverpool last season clearly indicate that the teenager is ready to make the step up to a more competitive league.

Besides his creativity and eye for goal, Szoboszlai has also earned rave reviews for his versatility. The player may have played as a left-sided midfielder this season but he is capable of playing as an attacking midfielder.

The youngster might not be the finished article just yet but there have been clear signs to suggest that the Hungarian is a special talent with loads of potential. And hence, Tottenham would stand to benefit greatly by signing Dominik Szoboszlai.
