Dominik Szoboszlai 'private plane' tracked as Liverpool and Newcastle face transfer deadline

A Hungarian football account has posted a photo of a plane that allegedly travelled from Budapest to England as speculation continues over Dominik Szoboszlai's move to Liverpool.

The Athletic's David Ornstein has reported that the Reds are pushing ahead with plans to sign the 22-year-old, who has a release clause of €70 million contained within his RB Leipzig contract.

And The Times say that Liverpool will trigger that clause on June 30 - the same day on which it is reported to expire - while Newcastle are also interested.

Szoboszlai, one of the top attacking midfielders in world football, fits the profile that the Reds are wanting from a new signing in his position this summer, as per Sky Sports reporter Melissa Reddy.

And we now appear to be at the stage where the flight tracker gets involved, with the Hungary international based in Germany and his home country at different stages of the year.

A Twitter account named Hungarian Football Xtra posted a photo on Friday of a plane that set off from Budapest and landed in Liverpool on Thursday afternoon.

The account claimed that this meant Szoboszlai's representatives had held talks with Reds chiefs - although there is no confirmation that the plane actually belongs to the attacking midfielder or his representatives, or whether the player was on it.

FlightRadar24 did confirm that the plane did indeed fly from Budapest to Liverpool - which doesn't rule out that Szoboszlai is in talks with the Reds.

Flight tracking among supporters of top clubs isn't exactly uncommon during summer and winter windows - and those same supporters will be desperately hoping Liverpool can get this deal over the line.

As per WhoScored, the 22-year-old recorded the sixth-highest average rating of any player in the Bundesliga during the 2022/23 season.

The attacking midfielder, who can play out wide and as part of a three-player attack, honed his technical skills by practicing with golf balls in his hands, as per Hungarian outlet Telex.

The reason behind that was to improve his ability to get out with the ball in tough situations - something that he may have to consistently practice should he move to the Premier League this summer.
