Liverpool target Dominik Szoboszlai showed his elite mentality when Neymar tried to put him off last minute penalty

Liverpool target Dominik Szoboszlai showed his elite mentality when Neymar tried to put him off last minute penalty

RB Leipzig star Dominik Szoboszlai is set to undergo a medical at Liverpool after the Reds agreed a £60 million fee.

Liverpool's new £60 million signing Dominik Szoboszlai displayed ice in his veins during an exchange with Neymar playing for RB Leipzig back in 2021.

After it was claimed a deal for the midfielder would be difficult for the Reds to do, they moved quickly to trigger Szoboszlai's release clause just ahead of it expiring on June 30.

Personal terms have been agreed and now medical examinations have been arranged ahead of Szoboszlai becoming Liverpool's second signing of the summer.

Fans are extremely excited about what Szoboszlai can bring to Liverpool - with many enjoying how he silenced PSG superstar Neymar.

In a group stage clash a couple of years back, PSG were leading 2-1 going into the dying embers after Georginio Wijnaldum scored twice.

But in the last minute, defender Presnel Kimpembe made a silly challenge on Nkunku inside the area and a spot-kick was awarded following an extended VAR check.

Szoboszlai grabbed the ball and there was already huge pressure as Andre Silva saw his penalty saved by Gianluigi Donnarumma.

But then Neymar came over and tried to get in his head. Afterwards, Szoboszlai revealed all about the Brazilian's mind games.

In his post-match interview, Szoboszlai explained: "He was asking me: 'You going to score?'

"I said yes. He said to me 'are you sure?' I said yes. I never miss. It is how it is."

The mind games did not affect Szoboszlai in the slightest as he put away his penalty with aplomb to deliver the equaliser.

And when he said he never misses, Szoboszlai was telling no lies. He has missed just one penalty out of 16 taken in his entire career.

As a compilation shows, the 22-year-old seemingly always goes for the very same side to the right of the goalkeeper.

But while they know where he's going to put the ball and dive the right way, his power and placement means no keeper has any chance of getting anywhere near it.

Liverpool might just have found their new penalty taker.
