Young Hungarian striker Adam Szalai is at the centre of a tug of war transfer battle between Liverpool and Inter Milan.

The 6″4′ striker is currently plying his trade for Mainz in Die Bundesliga and has helped steer them towards the upper echelons of the table.

Szalai has scored three times this season for Mainz since making his loan move permanent. He also grabbed a hat-trick during Hungary’s 8-0 thrashing of San Marino, before adding his fourth goal in five internationals in their 2-1 victory over Finland.

The twenty-two year old frontman was previously on Real Madrid’s books, but was sent out on loan to Mainz last season where he scored once in fifteen appearances. He has started this season in better form though, scoring three times in nine outings so far.

His agent, Oliver Fischer, has said that interest in his client is growing – but that there is also no rush for him to move on from Mainz.

“If there was an offer then it’s likely that we would consider it,” he told Nemzeti Sport.

“But at the moment the most important thing is that Szalai is happy to play at his present team.”

“No-one contests that Internazionale are a big club but the player is still very young, this is his first full season at Mainz and he has to progress.”

Inter’s new manager Rafael Benitez had Szalai watched while in charge at Anfield – and the dossier on the player is said to have interested the new management team, along with his upturn in goalscoring form.

Italian outfit Palermo and German side Hannover are also reported to be interested in signing Szalai.
