ARSENAL target Dominik Szoboszlai has liked an Instagram post about the Gunners’ 4-1 victory against Rapid Vienna in the Europa League.
The Red Bull Salzburg playmaker has been linked with a switch to the Emirates in January as the North Londoners look to add creativity to their side.

But despite the 20-year-old liking a post celebrating Arsenal’s fifth consecutive victory in Europe this season, some fans believe it isn’t a sign he will be joining the club.
They pointed out to the fact that Szoboszlai could have been revelling in Vienna’s misery as they are rivals with Salzburg.
Vienna are third in the Australian Bundesliga – just four points behind Salzburg after nine games played.
Commenting on Szoboszlai’s antics, one supporter tweeted: “I’m pretty sure he liked that because Salzburg’s rivals lost but I’ll pretend otherwise.”
Another commented: “Do you guys know that he plays for Salzberg and Rapid Wien are their rivals…”
A third added: “He’s a Salzburg player, so I assume Rapid are their main rivals.”
Meanwhile one simply stated: “That’s because Rapid lost.”
Arsenal are understood to be one of several sides that are looking at signing Szoboszlai, who boasts a £22.5million release clause in his contract.

However it has been claimed that it is RB Leipzig that are in pole position to land the Hungary international.
Bild journalist Christian Falk recently said: “According to our information, the player will go to RB Leipzig, probably already during the winter transfer market.”
And Szoboszlai’s national team boss Marco Rossi revealed last month that a move to Germany is on the cards.
He told CalcioNapoli24 TV via CalcioMercato: “My feeling is that he is more likely to end up in Germany.
“He is ready to make the leap, going to the Bundesliga the pace is less long.
“The Austrian football of Salzburg is similar to that of the Bundesliga.”
