Fabrizio talks up an Arsenal move for Alexander Isak this transfer window

If Fabrizio Romano’s latest rumors are to be believed, Alexander Isak is Arsenal’s dream striker, and they have a tough task to bring him on board.

It would be surprising if Arsenal did not sign a top No. 9 in the summer; that could be the most anticipated transfer move among the Gooners.

The striker the Gunners will sign remains a mystery, but who knows? It could be Newcastle’s Alexander Isak.

Over the last few weeks, there has been speculation that Newcastle will, in the summer, need to sell key players to comply with FFP. According to several reports, Alexander Isak is considered one of their sellable players. And the Emirates Stadium has been considered an option if the Swedish striker leaves St. James Park.

Why would Arsenal want Isak?

Fabrizio Romano has explained why Arsenal may consider making a move for high-flying Isak, who has 15 goals in 23 games.

He says that at the Emirates Stadium, the Newcastle player is well-liked and has been on their radar for some time. In fact, they see him as the ideal striker for their project. Romano said: “Alexander Isak is another Newcastle player attracting interest, and Arsenal have always appreciated him, even when he was at Real Sociedad. They’ve been scouting him for a while, and he’s considered a really talented striker, and with the style they have, I think he’s appreciated as a good fit for that style.”

As blown away as the Gunners are about Isak, they still have much to do, to land him, and it may all begin with the Magpies’ willingness to sell him.

“However, I’m not aware of any direct contacts or negotiations for Arsenal to sign Isak, so it’s not something concrete at this point. I also don’t see Newcastle selling two or three important players; I think they will have to make a decision on who is the one to leave the club.

“And with Arsenal, they have multiple candidates who could come in up front, with Viktor Gyokeres one of the names on their list, as well as others, while a deal for Isak won’t be easy.”

With the Magpies’ precarious situation necessitating a significant sale, it is clear that the Gunners have a good chance of signing their dream striker, Isak. It may take a large bid (in the £100 million range) for the Eddie Howe-led side to let their star striker leave, but in the end, it may be a win-win situation: they could balance their books, and Arsenal could sign their ideal striker.

If Arsenal rates Isak as highly as Fabrizio Romano claims, I don’t see why they don’t go all out to sign him this summer.

  1. Though this story does have a few legs, he’s not my cup of tea.

    But observing how the gaffer operates through various phases, he will not show his hands.

  2. Isak will personally be my priority striker signing if we intend to sign a striker, but considering Mikel’s appreciation of Gabi,Eddie and Kai, i’ll consider these striker rumors as non story.

  3. If we are going to buy a striker, then other than for his known fitness issues, I can’t think of a reason not to sign Isak.

  4. Nice stats but definitely a pass for me. I was a bit jealous of Newcastle when they first got him but I just haven’t warmed to him on the pitch. Would much rather Ivan Toney. Probably other better options out there too.

  5. His injury issues would be a concern, especially for a rumored price of 100 million.

    For that money I would rather go for Gyokeres; a great finisher, but more rounded and provides assists as well. He would fit better with our system in my opinion due to his assists.

    I would be pleased if we brought in Sesko; a good striker who will really improve, also at half the cost of some rumored candidates.

    Sesko transfer would leave funds for a possible 2nd midfielder. Gomes and Zubimendi?

  6. It’s a question of getting our priorities right particularly when we are not immune from FFP restrictions.Following on from the disappointing Bayern result, it’s clear to me and some others on JA that we simply do not have a ready made solution to our weakness in the LB position.And before we get the usual response concerning the ability of Timber and Tomi to resolve the issue,prior to arriving at Arsenal neither played at LB for their Clubs nor their National sides because there are others who are natural left footers who are more effective in that position .Defensively ,Tomi and Timber are up to the job, but in terms of linking up with others when attacking and crossing the ball with their left foot, they are lacking and not effective.Kwior was found wanting against Bayern which is not surprising as he is not a LB and was facing a top quality winger in Sane.Skilful and intelligent he may be in midfield, but our other alternative, namely Zinchenko , is very vulnerable defensively.In essence,despite spending heaps of cash during the past 2/3 seasons we simply do not have a quality left back in our player pool.This glaring weakness may well be our downfall in the EPL and the Champions League, and to me a top class LB would top my shopping list for next season.
