The Hungary international was spotted arriving in the UK via private jet earlier on Saturday after Liverpool triggered the £60.2m release clause in his Leipzig deal.

Newcastle United were also believed to have been weighing up a move for Szoboszlai, but the Magpies withdrew their interest to give Liverpool a clear run.

According to The Athletic, Szoboszlai has now completed those tests with no problems. Szoboszlai reportedly signed a five-year contract, tying him down to the Merseyside club until the July 2028.

Szoboszlai will depart Leipzig two and a half years after joining from fellow Red Bull-owned outfit Salzburg in January 2021, and Die Roten Bullen will make a sizeable profit on the £18.9m they paid for the Hungarian.

The midfielder has bagged 20 goals and 22 assists in 91 games for RB Leipzig in all tournaments. The 2022-23 season saw Szoboszlai, score 10 and assist 13 goals. He also won the DFB-Pokal trophy for a second successive time.

Szoboszlai could be deployed as a midfielder or winger for Liverpool, although Klopp is expected to deploy him as a number eight  or a number 10, just behind the striker so he could work his magic.

The Hungary international will follow Alexis Mac Allister to Liverpool following the Argentine's £35m move from Brighton & Hove Albion as reported in the Football Transfer News.
