Marsch Discusses Eventual Move for Szoboszlai

Red Bull Salzburg Jesse Marsch didn't hold back when discussing winger Dominik Szoboszlai's potential move in January, talking more specifically about where he might go rather than if. The young Hungarian has been a target of many bigger teams and Europe and it appears like his time has come.

"Dominik Szoboszlai has many admirers," said Marsch on Grant Wahl's Futbol podcast. "He is an incredible talent. Let's see what happens, but I would be surprised if he stays beyond the winter market."

Among the teams interested in the youngster's services are AC Milan, Arsenal and RB Leipzig. Who has the inside track on landing the player remains to be seen. The Italian giants appeared to be in front for quite some time but that has recently changed with Leipzig showing great interest. This may end up driving up the price for Szoboszlai which currently stands at 25 million Euros.

Why is he so sought after?

All you need to do is watch his highlights in Salzburg to know the answer. Through 52 games, Szoboszlai has scored 13 goals with four coming in the UEFA Champions League. He was in important part of Salzburg's comeback win in the Austrian Bundesliga after the restart and continues to be a dominant presence despite his young age.

Szoboszlai won't leave for just the money. His agent Esterhazy has indicated that the team will need to be one that is a fitting project. Preferably a place where the player will have the best chance to showcase his skills and lift silverware in the coming years.

"I don't know if he will leave in January or the summer," said Esterhazy to DIGI Sport. "The most important thing is that we find a club where he has a good chance of playing and continuing his growth. It's no secret that it's approaching time to leave the Austrian League."

What Red Bull will receive for such a trade remains to be seen. However expectations are that the move will be finalized by the end of next week. Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts. In 2021 and 2022 he made 18 starts, scoring three goals and three assists, his total output for the club in Major League Soccer.  In 2023 Yearwood found his position in the club to vary greatly.

Along the way he secured two playoff berths, a seventh and fourth place finish in 2021 and 2022 respectively. While his time was ended abruptly in MLS, his memories of the American version of the game have helped him prepare for such a monumental task in Europe.
