Arsenal gets transfer boost as club rules out selling their player to a rival

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to sign Real Sociedad striker, Alexander Isak as a new report rules out a move to a rival.

The Swede has been on Arsenal’s radar since he starred for his country at Euro 2020 and he has remained on their wishlist.

However, they face competition from other European clubs, including Barcelona.

But El Nacional has handed them a boost in their bid to sign him by claiming Sociedad would not sell to Barca.

The report says they consider selling him to the Catalans as trading to a direct rival and wouldn’t want to strengthen the Blaugrana.

This has made things easier for Arsenal and the Gunners just need to reach an agreement with them to get their man.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Isak is one of the finest players Arsenal can sign to help solve their current goal-scoring problem.

The striker was in stunning form at Euro 2020 and showed his potential with his performance in that competition.

He has continued to do well in Spain this season for Sociedad.

Alexandre Lacazette, Eddie Nketiah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could all leave the Emirates in the summer.

If that happens, Isak is a significant player to bring to the Emirates if we want goals.

    Isak hasn’t confirmed his good form of last campaign with only 3 goals scored and no assists; how has he continued to do well? I don’t get it. He can easily be injured prone because of the way he rund uncontrollably all over the pitch.

    interesting proposition, as having a CF with his size and pace is certainly a tantalizing proposition, but I must admit I do worry about his goal-scoring record thus far…it’s not a non-starter, as he’s still only 22, but it does raise a little red flag for me depending on the required monetary investment…according to what I’ve read this individual signed a 19,000/week deal in 2019, so Sociedad are going to make some serious coin no matter the bid and there’s no doubt we can surely turn his head with the kind of wages on offer in North London, but I don’t think it would be wise to for us to pay above the number unless we’re convinced he’s THE answer…ironically, he’s kind of an Auba/Laca “love child” amalgamation, in that he has the pace to beat you more directly and he likes to come deeper and play with his back to goal

    He’s been on our radar for about 6 years.

    He’s proven himself. We should go get him.

    It’s simple really but we overcomplicate and it with talk, talk and more talk.

    -Put a bid in for the player at a price lower than what you are willing to pay but still half decent
    -If accepted great, you got a player you wanted for less than you expected.
    -If rejected then put your final bid on the table
    -If accepted then great
    -If rejected move on

    This can all happen in the first 5-10 days of the transfer window but don’t tell MA/Edu that! More talk means higher price. You should know who you want months before the window opens and you’ll know the amount you have to use by the time the window opens.

    This is the kind of player we need, Arteta you need to make this business done, ok.

  6. Emmanuel Jeremiah says:

    I’m worried about his goalscoring stats as a striker. This season he has only scored 3 in 16 appearances, and that is in a league not as competitive as the EPL. We need someone deadlier, someone like Vhlahovic, but he’s too expensive at around 60 mill.
    We can grow as a club if we keep pursuing mediocre signings just bcos they cheap.

  7. Gunnerdev says:

    I still think he is too light weight for a EPL CF.

      @Gunnerdev
      I agree with you in this. EPL defenders, especially at the mid and bottom of the table clubs are monsters who would eat this guy alive…
