Bayern Munich will join the hotly-contested race to sign Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai, according to club legend Lothar Matthaus.

Club legend Lothar Matthaus claims that Bayern Munich will likely have identified Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai as a potential transfer target.

Szoboszlai's performances for Salzburg and Hungary over the past 18 months have established him as one of the top young players in Europe.

While RB Leipzig are regarded as the favourites to sign the 20-year-old, Arsenal, Real Madrid and AC Milan are also said to be monitoring the situation.

According to Matthaus, Bayern will soon join that list of clubs having made a comparison between the playmaker and Chelsea's Kai Havertz.

Speaking to Abendzeitung Muenchen, Matthaus said: "There is Dominik Szoboszlai, who scored the decisive goal against Iceland. He's a gem, a guy like Kai Havertz.

"In Hungary he is already being compared to the great Ferenc Puskas. A really great player who sometimes acts in the centre and sometimes comes over the flank.

"He could move to RB Leipzig in January, but I'm convinced that every top European club has him on the list, including FC Bayern."

Szoboszlai has just over 18 months remaining on his contract at Salzburg.
