On June 3rd, journalist Florian Plettenberg reported RB Leipzig star Dominik Szoboszlai is aware of concrete interest from Newcastle United.

The Magpies’ interest in the 22-year-old is discussed by Sky Deutschland when stating what’s next for the player, who’s ‘willing to change’ clubs in this window.

It’s claimed Newcastle ‘continue to push’ to sign the attacking midfielder.

The Hungary international has a €70m release clause and Sky say the Bundesliga side ‘will not deviate’ from this figure to sanction his sale.

On Monday, Sky journalist Philipp Hinze said Eddie Howe’s side are aware Leicester City’s James Maddison is cheaper than Szoboszlai but view the latter as ‘more promising’. It’s not made clear whether Newcastle are ready to pay the Leipzig star’s clause.

Earlier this month, Szoboszlai opened the door to joining the Tyneside club after admitting he’ll consider the option in this window.

Apart from Newcastle, the Hungarian has also been linked to other clubs. His compatriot and Hertha Berlin assistant manager, Tamás Bódog, has advised the player to move to England.

“If he changes, I think only England is a clear step forward for him. Of course, there are top teams in Italy, France and Spain, but I think the Premier League would be the best choice for him. He could develop even further there,” Bódog told Index.
