Liverpool have activated a reported €70 million release clause in Szoboszlai’s contract to sign him.
"It has been an intense and above all successful few years at RB Leipzig. I have met lots of people on and off the pitch who have really helped me in my development. I matured in Leipzig and have been able to learn a lot, so I have a lot to thank the club for," Szoboszlai is quoted as saying by RB Leipzig.
The Hungary international, who spent two at a half years at RB Leipzig, added:
"When I came to Leipzig in 2021, it was a difficult period for me as I couldn’t help the team as I wanted due to the injury. But I was confident I would bounce back and perform."
RB Leipzig sporting director Max Eberl commented:
"Dominik Szoboszlai has made an outstanding leap in the past season and matured into a leading player at RB Leipzig who has gone and taken on responsibility. He has been a big part of us being able to achieve our aims.
"Of course, we would have liked to go into the new season and coming years with Dominik. He has decided, however, to make the move to England and Liverpool, a top team in Europe. This is another testament to us as a club and the work that has been done here to take young players to the next level.
"In the case of Dominik Szoboszlai, our hands were tied due to the release clause in his contract, meaning we had to let him go. We will, however, find strong alternatives and other options following this departure, not least with the additions we have already made in the attacking area."
