Blow for Arsenal as AC Milan enter race to sign striker

AC Milan have emerged as potential suitors for Real Sociedad’s Alexander Isak, a player believed to be on Arsenal’s radar.

The Gunners appeared to be working hard to bring in Dusan Vlahovic from Fiorentina earlier in the window, only for Juventus to forge ahead and sign the Serbian, and they are now believed to have turned their attentions to Isak.

It remains to be seen if a deal can be struck this month, and that has been made further unlikely following interest from AC Milan, with InsideFutbol citing La Gazzetta as their source.

The Rossoneri are claimed to be keen on bolstering their frontline, with the club keen to get themselves back on track to challenge for the title, trailing their city rivals Inter by only four points at present.

Our need for a new forward is surely stronger than Milan’s, knowing that they currently have both Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic vying for their central role, while we are currently slim-pickings in that department.

Not only is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang linked with the exit door, but both Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are inside the final six months of their deals, and have uncertain futures also.

What should pose attractive for Isak is our young and exciting playing squad who all appear to be thriving together in the first-team, although I doubt he would be thinking of taking up a move that wasn’t going to guarantee him first-team football regardless.

Could Isak snub Arsenal for Milan?

    1. I would say Jonathon David would be a very good signing. Versatile and with an eye for goal he would turn out to be an excellent signing if we managed to get him…

      1. I agree with you. David is a beast at pressing opponents too, fits into Arteta’s ethos. Rather we sign David in my opinion

        1. obviously he will want to play in ecl next season so he will not risk coming in this transfer window, this applies to every top striker we are targeting right now. it will be a miracle if we manage to sign any top striker within this remaining hours.

  1. Isak should be judged at the end of the season. By then, we’ll have better sample sizes to analyze him. I don’t trust him for now

  2. It will be interested to see if we get anyone in this window.

    I get the feeling that KSE are more interested in their LA Rams getting to and winning the Super Bowl than Arsenal finishing in the top 6!!

    We haven’t helped ourselves by letting so many players leave on loan rather than being sold. We have reduced the wage bill for the rest of the season, but we have not increased any Transfer kitty the Kroenke’s allowed us.

    To compound the problems we appear to have gone after the two most expensive forwards available.

    I cannot believe neither Edu nor Arteta knew of the financial restrictions when they decided that Dusan and Isak were the only two options they would pursue.

    I really think we should have pursued a DM option instead.

    At least we could have tightened up the defence, which might have allowed the forwards more freedom.

    Still, the magician might pull a rabbit out of the hat. I just hope it is not Calvert Lewin or Morata (one who has already failed in the EPL).
