• How The Hungarian Operates In Midfield
  • His Strengths and Weaknesses

Liverpool have agreed to pay the £60m release clause to sign the 22-year-old, highly rated Leipzig midfielder. He will become Jürgen Klopp’s second signing of the summer, following Alexis Mac Allister.

Szoboszlai will sign a long-term contract in Merseyside, but let’s look at the profile of the Leipzig star, and how he fits into Klopp’s new Liverpool side.

What Dominik Szoboszlai Adds To Liverpool

Szoboszlai is an attacking midfielder with excellent technique and incredible precision. He is known for his free kicks and long range shots, but he is also a talented creator in the middle of the park.

Dominik Szoboszlai came through the Red Bull academy system. He signed for Leipzig two years ago and almost immediately became an important cog for the German side.


Szoboszlai operates just at the tip of the midfield. His technique and quick feet allows him to be more efficient down the right most times for RB Leipzig.

He is among the top 10% of midfielders in “shot-creating actions” in Europe. A good passer who looks perfect for Jürgen Klopp’s midfield.

What Dominik Szoboszlai Adds To Liverpool

The Hungarian’s threat from long range attempts is real, and that will come in handy in the Premier League. He is also an expert spot-kick taker.

His crossing from deep, delivery from set-pieces, and direct free kick are phenomenal for a 22-year-old – and that sits well into the plan for Klopp’s refreshed Liverpool side.

At just 22, Dominik Szoboszlai has scored directly from free kicks 8 times at club level – Another dead-ball specialist for Liverpool


Szoboszlai is a top attacking midfielder, but he can also work hard for the team. The Hungarian captain made 89 blocks and 87 clearances in the Bundesliga last term, but he needs to rapidly improve on his duels. He will get isolated with tougher defenders more often in the Premier League.

What Dominik Szoboszlai Adds To Liverpool

He’ll be making more tackles than ever, more runs in a relentless Liverpool side, so he needs to balance his game to be more efficient in the Premier League for The Reds.

…For Liverpool

The Hungarian will sit at the tip of midfield and roam, much like what Philippe Coutinho did early under Klopp. His arrival will allow Mohamed Salah to be just a little more selfish with his runs.

Szoboszlai brings creativity real threat from the middle of the park, add that to Trent Alexander Arnold’s passing, Jota and Mohamed Salah’s efficiency and the growing influence of Darwin Núñez and Cody Gakpo in attack, Liverpool have surely improved their squad with this move.
