Arsenal set to enjoy an advantage over Man Utd in race for Swedish ace

Arsenal has received a boost in their pursuit of Alexander Isak as top Premier League clubs track the striker.

Isak has been on Arsenal’s radar since his time at Real Sociedad in La Liga before he made the move to the Premier League to join Newcastle United.

The striker has proven to be an excellent addition for the Magpies, and Arsenal’s interest in him persists.

As they seek to sign a new frontman at the end of this season, it remains uncertain which player will ultimately join their ranks, but Isak is among the contenders.

Manchester United is also interested in the Swedish star and could potentially add him to their squad, but they now face a disadvantage.

Reports suggest that the Red Devils are looking to appoint Dan Ashworth as one of their directors and are engaged in talks to recruit him from Newcastle United.

According to a report from iNews, Newcastle may include a transfer ban clause in the deal, preventing Ashworth from signing players from Newcastle to Manchester United, at least for the time being.

This restriction leaves Arsenal with a significant advantage in the race for Isak’s signature.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Isak has been a fine striker in the Premier League, and stepping up to a big club like Arsenal can even make him perform better.

  1. Isak is a great striker and PL proven. He is in a great form for Newcastle although the team on the whole is not doing that great. He would be a good buy if we indeed sign him and I rate him higher than the over hyped Toney. Isak is consistent in scoring and is a team man considering his overall game. Also, I dont think he will be as expensive as Osimhen, who is not PL proven.

    1. What’s all this talk about being or not being Premier League proven?

      I would take Osimhen over Isak anyday

      1. PL proven is very important. Strikers do well in other Leagues but struggle when it comes to the PL, the pace and the power of the PL is sometimes too much for them. A striker may shine in other slower Leagues but it is a different cup of tea when it comes to the PL. I would take a PL proven striker any day over a shiny toy elsewhere.

  2. This is a striker that I really rate, and one that would be a good fit for us, and not cost the earth to buy. If he’s available as is suggested, then I’d like to see us grab him.

  3. I think we might be in for Gyökeres. He’s not PL proven but he has played in the Championship for 3 seasons, and I think he counts as homegrown.

    39 matches, 36 goals, 14 assists is an insane tally despite the Portuguese league being fairly weak:

    Darwin Nunez last season at Benfica:
    43 matches, 37 goals, 4 assists

    Falcao last season at Porto:
    42 matches, 38 goals, 7 assists

    1. @DaJuhi
      Gyokeres has played at Brighton in the epl, as well as Coventry in the championship. Dude is tall and powerful as well as plays good with his back to goal and holdup play. Isak is too lightweight. Jus sayin

  4. Isak would fit our tactics, ethos and style so well; fast, agile, tall, clinical, a team player who is comfortable with the ball anywhere in the opposition half. A different type of player to Jesus, Havertz and Trossard, and pretty sure our very own Henry was his idol. Make this happen, it could be phenomenal!

  5. Isak is a good striker but lacks Ariel dominance, he’s also lightweight,
    IMO, I would prefer Sesko or Zirkzee, that’s if they wants us,
    Gyokeres also seems a great choice.
