Hi eds,

any truth behind the rumours that we might activate Szoboszlai's release clause in January? thanks.

{Ed002's Note - Dominik Szoboszlai (LM/CM) has been the first choice Sergej Milinkovic-Savic replacement for Lazio since the summer of 2019. Lazio have a declared interest and at the right price RBS could take the money - but only if Milinkovic-Savic departs. Milan have spoken with his agent (when it was likely Ralf Rangnick would take over) - but RBS were not happy with Milan. Milan has serious financial issues and the club may not now be as keen as the planned new coach and would look to include players in any deal. Inter have spoken with RBS. Napoli are interested as a long-term replacement for Allan. Juventus interest dates back before Sarri took over as coach and Arsenal interest was from a scout the club fired and a previous coach - their position will be driven by what happens with Ceballos. Chelsea were interested when he was younger and at Liefering but could not offer him regular game time now - the scout who was keen on him remains keen though. PSG see him as a far cheaper option to their other midfield targets. The likes of Atletico, Dortmund and Fiorentina have scouted him but it has gone no further just yet. Salzburg have no desire to sell and it is another player that might stay within the family and move to RBL.

There is no "release clause" that is of any relevance to Arsenal.}

Ah okay thanks for clearing that up Ed, I read online that he had a £20m release clause.

{Ed002's Note - There is no relevance to any RC.}

Conley: (I believe that) German release clauses can only be activated by german clubs. for us it is essentially irrelevant.
