And according to Football Insider, they will have someone in the stands on Wednesday to watch him in action when Salzburg take on Liverpool in the Champions League.
Szoboszlai made his breakthrough into the first team at the Austrian club last season and has already established himself as one of their key players.
His form has not gone unnoticed at international level, with Hungary already handing him nine caps despite him only being in his second year of senior football.
Szoboszlai has been interesting Arsenal since first catching their eye last season.
It is claimed the Gunners even tried to strike deal with Salzburg last summer without success, eager to snap him up before any other clubs made a move.
They have already checked up on him this season by taking in the Champions League game against Genk last month.
