Arsenal are reportedly keen on signing Alexander Isak, who is also a target for Barcelona and Liverpool, in the January transfer window.
According to a report by Transfer Market Web, Alexander Isak is the subject of interest from Arsenal over a move in the January transfer window. The Real Sociedad striker is also being courted by Barcelona and Liverpool, with the two giants having submitted an enquiry for him as well.
Alexander Isak has come leaps and bounds since ending a frustrating spell at Borussia Dortmund. Having joined Real Sociedad in the summer of 2019, the Swedish international has finally made some massive strides in his career, especially at international level, having starred for his nation at UEFA Euro 2020 as well as the recent FIFA World Cup 2022 Qualifiers.
To date, the 21-year-old has a record of 34 goals and five assists in 93 appearances for La Real, with his performances starting to get noticed by some of the biggest clubs in Europe. As things stand, Isak is being tailed by the likes of Barcelona, Arsenal and Liverpool, among others.
The interest from Barcelona is understandable, considering both Sergio Aguero and Luuk de Jong are only going to be short-term solutions in attack, with the former only signed on loan. With Martin Braithwaite also likely to be offloaded at the earliest opportunity, it is clear that Barcelona can do with a striker, with Isak a viable target.
Arsenal, on the other hand, could be eyeing Isak owing to the uncertain future of Alexandre Lacazette. The Frenchman has entered the final year of his deal with the Gunners, with a Bosman move likely next summer. With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the wrong side of 30, Isak could be the long-term successor for the Arsenal captain.
As for Liverpool, the inconsistent performances of Roberto Firmino appear to have prompted the search for a striker. More importantly, with Divock Origi surplus to requirements at Anfield, Isak is a player who could initially replace Origi before eventually becoming Firmino’s successor.
As per Transfer Market Web, Arsenal are keen on signing Isak in the January transfer window while Barcelona and Liverpool, along with Juventus and AS Roma have made an approach for the 21-year-old. So, an intriguing transfer battle appears to be setting up for the Swedish international, who could well be on the move in one of the two coming transfer windows.
