Austria’s series champion is working on the team for the future. A 19-year-old Icelander should come, as well as goalkeeper Alexander Schlager.
Hákon Arnar Haraldsson – is that the name of Salzburg’s new super talent? According to KURIER information, the 19-year-old Icelander is at the top of the wish list for the Austrian series champions and could come from FC Copenhagen in winter.
The offensive man is a regular at the Danish top club and is mostly used in central midfield, but can also play on the wing or in the front line. His contract with Copenhagen runs until 2026, which is why a higher fee than his current market value (two million euros) would be due. He has scored one goal in 16 league games this season. The highlight, however, was his goal in the 1-1 draw against Dortmund in the Champions League.
Haraldsson made his debut for Iceland’s national team in June and has picked up seven international caps to date. He was also recently voted Footballer of the Year in his home country. His parents were also team players, his brother Tryggvi Hrafn is a professional at Valur Reykjavik.
At Salzburg, Haraldsson could follow in Luka Sucic’s footsteps. The Croatian World Cup starter is very popular with several top European clubs and could change in the winter, but at the latest in the summer. Defender Maximilian Wöber is also said to be about to be transferred (Leeds). Benjamin Sesko moves to Leipzig after the season, with Noah Okafor, Strahinja Pavlovic, Oumar Solet and Nicolas Seiwald other top performers could leave Salzburg in the summer at the latest.
Something could also happen in the goalkeeper position at Salzburg. Philipp Köhn has attracted the interest of several clubs with strong performances, a transfer – probably in the summer – is imminent. The successor is Alexander Schlager (26), who recently announced that he would not extend his contract with LASK, which expired in the summer. Salzburg was already interested in Schlager before this season, when a transfer is said to have failed due to the Linzer transfer demands being too high.
