‘Exactly what Arsenal need’ – Club urged to sign ‘perfect’ target

Kevin Campbell has claimed that Alexander Isak would be the ‘perfect’ signing for Arsenal.

The Gunners have been strongly linked with a number of different attacking options in recent windows, but are yet to bring in a new striker since Arsene Wenger left.

That looks set to change in the near future however with two of their three senior options out of contract this summer, while Auba has been frozen out of the side in recent weeks.

Former Gunner Campbell believes that he knows the perfect striker to bring to the Emirates however, naming Sweden International Isak.

“I like Isak. He’s a young, strong striker who has got a very good all-round game,” he told the Football Insider.

“Not only does he score, but he can also link the play, run in behind, and win those aerial duels.

“Getting that all-round striker is really important for Arsenal – as I’ve been saying for a while.

“The key is that he’s young and coachable. Obviously, he’ll have to develop and learn, but he’s perfect, exactly what Arsenal need.”

Isak is definitely a talent, and almost certainly fits our recent transfer policy of signing young players with the scope improve their value and ability.

Whether the club will agree that he is right is another story, especially considering we already have an extremely young squad.

Replacing both Laca n Auba could mean we need to consider looking at someone a little more experienced to being balance to the current crop.

What are your thoughts on Isak? Will the squad need experience brought in to replace Laca n Auba?

    Arsenal shd not be held back by the Serbian.As for Chelsea wanting him,it may or may not be true.
    Arsenal shd give him a time frame to decide.If not,Arsenal shd go for the next
    tsrget.
    Arsenal is a premium soccer brand.It has declined the last ten years.And if Saka or any of his kind is sold,it shows the owners are treating the club az an atm

    Isak would indeed be the perfect candidate if we were looking for a 2/3 year development project. Top 4 is now within our reach, so the ideal candidate for this window, should be a more trusted striker who can hit the ground running. Sorry KC, Alexander Isak does not meet this criteria.

      I definitely get what your driving at RF, but this presents me with a bit of a quandary…on the one hand, at the start of the season, under the guise that we were really dedicated to a “rebuild” of sorts and that top 4 seemed a bit of a stretch, I would have been far more supportive of the notion of taking on a bit of a project, as expectations would be naturally tempered and he could grow with our relatively young nucleus

      on the other hand, if would have been hard to predict that several of our closest competitors for European positions would have tripped over their collective dicks so much so that it actually opened a more plausible pathway to a top 4 finish…as such, and considering our struggles in recent years, it’s incredibly difficult to look a gift horse in the mouth…with this in mind, a more finished product just might be the more logical course of action at this juncture

    Isak would definitely add value to the team but my first choice would still be Vlahovic, a fantastic striker who has got the whole of Europe talking. If he doesnt come, Isak definitely is the next on the list.

    Get Isak for Laca and Vlahovic for Auba finished

    1. APANGU IDDI AMIN says:

      Thats where my soul will rest when i see this happen. please Edu and MT do some magic as u did last summer, We shall be in top 4 whether they like it or not bcz the goals are automatically going to be coming from every corner. If not then Vlahovic and more proven DM who is 98% error free unlike Xhaka.

  5. DaJuhi says:

    I don’t see Isak worth the money quoted around. He hasn’t showed anything to warrant over £40 million.

    1. PJ-SA says:

      Agreed, only 4 league goals this year

  6. Longbenark says:

    I really don’t see Isak doing much, somehow I would take immobile, dzeko and Dominic over Isak,

    I would also prefer we get more midfielders before a striker, get Wijnaldum and Ascensio on loan.

  7. LtDan says:

    Isak is just another Poborsky. Had an ok Euro’s but not much prior to or after that. Waste of money as he’d get eaten alive in the premiership!
