AC Milan will now compete with Arsenal for La Liga star

Arsenal will have to see off competition from AC Milan for the signature of Alexander Isak in the summer.

The Swede has been on the radar of the Gunners for a long time now, but they failed to sign him in the last transfer window.

Missing out on his signature last month means Arsenal now has to finish this season with no new attacker, despite scoring just once in January.

The striker could easily have made the move in January if the Gunners were serious. He might cost them more at the end of this campaign.

Todofichajes says he is also wanted by Milan, who considers him the perfect replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Real Sociedad man will now have to choose between both clubs.

His present side expects to cash in on him in the summer, and this news is good news to them.

It means he would now join the club that offers them the most money if none can trigger his release clause.

Just Arsenal Opinion

It would have been great if we signed Isak in the last transfer window, but the real transfer transactions are done at the end of the season.

If Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette leave at the end of this season, we would have more reasons to add attackers to the squad, and Isak could be one of our arrivals.

  1. Arsenal doesn’t need only one striker. A big club needs minimum 3 strikers like Liverpool. J David and many others are waiting on the sidelines

  2. I am of the opinion that Arsenal were never going to buy a player in January!

    We heard lots and lots of talk about Dusan (he who did not want to come to Arsenal in any event).

    When it finally became obvious to Arsenal fans that he was never going to Join the club, the dynamic duo quickly changed focus to Isak.

    He is a player with a $75m buy out clause, that his club insisted must be met. So any one with an ounce of common sense would know he was a non-starter.

    We also heard we needed a Right-back and a Midfielder.

    I suggest both of these positions could have been filled if there was money available, but we have seen no attempt to fill these “positions”.

    So we are now in a race to get a top 6 spot (just to appease Admin Pat).

    We have 2 center forwards, (Laca and Eddie) both with their own deficiencies.
    We have 4 wingers (Saka, Pepe, Martinelli and ESR).
    We have 5 midfielders (Odegaard, Xhaka. Elneny, Partey and Lokonga)
    We have 3 Center Halves (White, Gabriel and Holding)
    We have 4 fullbacks (Tommy, Soares, Tavares and Tierney)
    Finally we have 2 goalkeepers (Ramsdale and Leno)

    On paper we looked well covered.
    However, you still have to take into account both the players and the teams Form, So if someone goes thru a bad spell there is not much in the replacement pool
    You have to look at the Quality of Opposition we have to play against, We might have to play more defensive, and do we have the players to accomplish that.
    and finally take into account replacements for possible Injuries we may incur.

    There is little margin for error.

    So, as a start, I hope everyone comes back from Qatar healthy and fit.
