An English club ready to pay £77m for Swedish forward – could it be Arsenal?

Arsenal target, Alexander Isak, could head to the Premier League where a club will pay his £77m release clause.

The Real Sociedad attacker has been on the radar of Arsenal for a long time before he shone for Sweden at Euro 2020.

More clubs became interested in a move for him and Cadena SER via Tuttomercatoweb says Arsenal contacted his agents to see if they could sign him.

He eventually signed a new improved deal at Sociedad with the said release clause.

That huge fee is enough to make his suitors have a rethink, but he could still move, with the report claiming that an unnamed English club will trigger the clause.

Arsenal paid Thomas Partey’s release clause in the summer of 2020 and the Gunners have enjoyed his contribution to their team.

They could be the club that is ready to splash the cash on Isak, considering that their attack is one position they haven’t strengthened in the last few transfer windows.

The former Borussia Dortmund man would be the ideal replacement for Alexandre Lacazette, who looks set to leave Arsenal at the end of this season when his current contract would expire.

    One goal so far this season, 17 last season. Not worth more than 30m IMO..

    1. Val says:

      agree, another Pepe imo – good player – inconsistent and inflated price

    2. AustinLorenzMcCoy says:

      Honestly still don’t get the hype

      Would easily get Ivan toney who is proven with that money

  2. NY_Gunner says:

    We need a tall, agile and strong target man type of striker. This guy is not it…

  3. gooner4life says:

    why not just go for Ivan Toney he is a beast and proving already he is up to PL’s physicality and scoring goals at this level. He would also be a cheaper option.

    ask Odegaard totap up Erling Haaland instead.

  5. Labass says:

    I’ll prefer oshimen of Napoli. He’s tall, has that physical presence, has pace ND a good striker ND he’s just 22. Fit the young age squad we re building. He’s the combination of Auba and Laca

    1. siamois says:

      Not happening,while at Lille he chose Napoli over Arsenal,he also cost 68M and signed a long term contract,if you know of Napoli owner De Laurentiis,he would be asking at least 100M,remember Koulibaly!

  6. CorporateMan says:

    Ivan Toney for me
    At that price, or even less, Brentford would deal, I think

  7. jon fox says:

    IF which I much doubt, there is any truth in that so called “report” it will be surely City and not us who will pay out such a huge sum for a nothing special player , to judge from his nothing special goal stats.

    1. jon fox says:

      Like several other Gooners I would go for Toney as he is Prem proven, even so early in his first Prem season.

      He looks a beast to me and we have had no one since Giroud who can head a ball, as a striker.

      1. PatH says:

        Unless Brentford get relegated, which I think is unlikely, then they will not, as I see it, want to part with Toney. They will want to build and strengthen their squad around their key players such as Toney. I am aware that money talks but in this case I believe that we are not going to get anywhere near Toney.
