Szobozslai officially finalized his £60m transfer from RB Leipzig on Sunday when he signed a five-year deal.
The new Reds player has revealed he has reached out to Manchester City striker Erling Haaland for advice after completing his move to Liverpool.
And the £60m signing has also elaborated his busy off-the-field schedule before he reports for pre-season training with his new club on July 11 at the AXA Training Centre.
Szobozslai became the club’s second signing of the summer when he officially signed a five-year contract on Sunday after the completion of a medical at the Reds’ Kirkby base.
Liverpool moved quickly to secure the deal with RB Leipzig after meeting the player’s representatives at the beginning of last week. The Reds triggered the 22-year-old’s £60m release clause on Friday before flying him into Merseyside on Saturday afternoon.
Szoboszlai developed a close friendship with City striker Haaland during their time together with Red Bull Salzburg and the new No.8 thinks it is possible that they might even become neighbours in the north west after a conversation with the Norway forward.
“We’ve talked,” Szoboszlai told the Hungarian-based Nemzeti Sport. “So much so that Erling Haaland has also advised on finding real estate, and it could very well be that we become neighbours.
“I learned from him that several players live halfway between Manchester and Liverpool in a quiet area where privacy can be preserved, and on Monday I will see what he was talking about, I am very curious.
“And of course, putting our friendship aside during the Liverpool-Manchester City matches, it will surely be a fantastic experience to play against each other.”
Szoboszlai also sought the advice of former Liverpool goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi who he played with at Leipzig, adding:
“I’ve spoken to him before and he knows what our relationship is like. He was there in Leipzig when I got there, I became a player for the club and I could count on his support from the very first moment.
“He was a very good team-mate of mine and I hope he got over his injury and there will be another Champions League match between Liverpool and RB Leipzig where he can try to save my free-kick!
“I’ll do some training on Monday, I have some paperwork to do, and then look at some potential properties where I’d like to live. Then I have to go to Leipzig, pack up my stuff, say goodbye to my former club, thank everyone for their support, love and encouragement and then to Budapest. But on the 10th at the latest I will be back in Liverpool, because on the 11th I will be training for my new team.”
Szoboszlai’s arrival has increased Liverpool’s spending to £95m so far following the early-June acquisition of Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton & Hove Albion and the Hungarian says he is not looking to put too much pressure on himself just yet as he prepares for life at his new club.
“I don’t want to look too far,” he said. “I’m trying to take it step by step, I definitely need time to get used to the rhythm of the Premier League, the way Liverpool plays, Jurgen Klopp’s ideas.
“The opportunity to play is the most important thing, as always, and if I have that, obviously I want to score as many goals as possible, dish assists, make myself accepted by my surroundings, the supporters. I want to justify the confidence I’ll be given here at Liverpool at every moment.”
