Dominik Szoboszlai’s stock has continued to rise in recent months, and the midfielder reached new heights last night.
With his Hungary side level with Iceland heading into added time, the midfielder scored a spectacular individual goal to book his nation’s place at next year’s European Championships.
Picking the ball up inside his own half, Szoboszlai waltzed past a number of opponents before finding the net via the inside of the post.
Having only turned 20 last month, Szoboszlai has garnered plenty of interest from across Europe.
Earlier this week, La Gazzetta dello Sport reported Arsenal are keen on the Red Bull Salzburg player, who is valued at £18m. However, they face competition from Italian giants AC Milan, with Napoli and Juventus also said to be considering a bid for the youngster.
Meanwhile, Metro has claimed fellow Red Bull club RB Leipzig are leading the race to secure Szoboszlai’s signature.
Following his latest heroics, some Arsenal fans have seen enough to be convinced the Gunners should snap the Hungarian up.
Here are some of the best reactions on Twitter after last night’s game.
Arsenal’s stuttering start
Arsenal have lost four of their opening eight league games, leaving the team languishing in mid-table.
They have failed to score in three of their last four top-flight matches. This has led some sections of the club’s supporters to question a lack of creativity in the side.
German playmaker Mesut Ozil is out of Mikel Arteta’s plans for the moment and the Gunners are surely on the lookout for players who can unlock defences as the January transfer window gets ever closer.
Could Szoboszlai be the answer?
Szoboszlai appears to fit the bill. He has registered six assists in his opening seven league appearances this season in Austria.
His performances in the Champions League have also caught the eye. The in-demand winger has already netted twice in the competition. This included scoring against Atletico Madrid last month.
Some Arsenal fans have made their thoughts clear on Szoboszlai. It remains to be seen whether Arsenal can tempt him to the Emirates.
