A number of British papers, including the Daily Mail, have picked up on El Nacional’s report claiming Arsenal are interested in signing Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak. The Swede is also wanted by Barcelona, but Real Sociedad indicated to the Catalan club that the 22-year-old has a €90m release clause, outlining their unwillingness to strengthen a league rival. Arsenal, meanwhile, could look to bring in Isak as a replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Paper Round’s view:
Aubameyang out, Isak in would be some move by Arsenal and a transfer that would get fans even more excited. It would bring another fresh injection of youth to what is already the youngest Premier League side, and it is a position where the club can certainly improve. Isak’s 17 league goals in 34 games last season proves his quality, although he is struggling for form and fitness somewhat this term, with seven goals in 22 games so far.
