Liverpool have informed RB Leipzig that they will trigger the 70m euro (£60.1m) release clause of Dominik Szoboszlai.

The 22-year-old Hungary attacking midfielder helped Leipzig finish third in the Bundesliga and claim the German Cup last season.

A meeting took place between the representatives of Szoboszlai’s camp and Liverpool, who are looking to bolster their midfield.

A move appeared unlikely earlier in the week but has now moved a step closer.

The release clause of Szoboszlai, who has also been linked with Newcastle United, is set to expire on Friday.

Szoboszlai made 31 appearances for Leipzig in the Bundesliga last season, scoring six goals and registering eight assists.

He joined the club from Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg in January 2021 and, since then, has scored 20 goals and produced 21 assists in 91 appearances.

One of those goals was the second in Leipzig’s 2-0 win against Eintracht Frankfurt on 3 June as they won the German Cup for the second season in a row.

Liverpool added to their midfield earlier in June with the signing of Argentina international Alexis Mac Allister for £35m from Brighton.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is looking to reinforce that area of the pitch with James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain leaving the club this summer.

Carvalho joins RB Leipzig on loan

Meanwhile, Liverpool forward Fabio Carvalho has moved in the other direction, joining RB Leipzig on a season-long loan.

Carvalho, 20, joined the Reds from Fulham last summer for an initial £5m and on a five-year contract.

He made 21 appearances for Liverpool last season, including eight starts, and scored three goals.

“He will now continue his development and gain more experience in Germany with Leipzig,” said Liverpool.

Spanish keeper Adrian has also signed a new contract to remain with Liverpool for the 2023-24 campaign.

He has played 26 times since joining on a free transfer from West Ham in 2019.
