Apparently, Liverpool were not fooling around when they said they would do everything in their power to add talent to their team, and reports coming in from England reveal their second signing of what will be a busy summer for the Reds.
Articles by most media outlets in England revealed that Liverpool had beaten Newcastle to the signing of 22-year-old Hungarian ace Dominik Szoboszlai. Confirmation for this news came hours later, when transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano revealed that Liverpool had already agreed terms with the player and went on to trigger his release clause out of RB Leipzig.
The Reds triggered Szoboszlai's clause one minute before the expiration date, which means they paid over $70M for his services.

The Hungarian footballer played over 90 games for RB Leipzig in the past two seasons, scoring 20 goals (ten each season) for the Red Bulls. His addition to Klopp's team will add depth to the Reds' midfield while also giving them some much-needed young blood in that region of the pitch.
