Pundit reveals why Newcastle might sell Arsenal targets

Arsenal is interested in signing Bruno Guimaraes and Alexander Isak this summer, but both players are considered untouchable at Newcastle United.

This raises the question of whether the Magpies will yield and sell these key players during the transfer window.

Guimaraes has been one of the Premier League’s standout performers in recent seasons, attracting attention from Manchester City as well.

Arsenal aims to compete with the champions for his signature, enhancing their squad as one of Europe’s top clubs in recent campaigns.

They are also interested in Isak, who has established himself as one of the Premier League’s best strikers since his arrival.

The Swede is on the radar of several other clubs in the country, but Newcastle is unlikely to sell if their financial situation is stable.

However, pundit Frank McAvennie suggests that the Magpies might consider selling Isak, given they already have Callum Wilson in their squad.

“It’s Guimaraes and the boy Isak, they’re the two that could go,” he told Football Insider.

“I would sell Isak, he’s the one, because there’s Callum Wilson coming back from injury who could take his place if he leaves and he’s fit.

“Guimaraes has been different class, but it depends on who comes in for him.

“There’s been talks about Arsenal wanting him but it could be anyone coming in to sign Guimaraes.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Isak and Guimaraes will improve our group, but it will be tough to sign either of them.


So here are some simple rules which I must insist commenters follow….

You agree not to give any personal abuse to other Arsenal fans. Everyone is allowed to hold their own opinions even if you disagree with them. It COSTS NOTHING TO BE POLITE TO OTHER ARSENAL FANS.

  1. Forget Isak, Arteta is not going to bench Havertz and spend 100 million + to do so.

    Forget Guimaraes also, the cost is too much and not worth it. We could get Fofana AND Sesko and have money left over for a backup keeper for the price of either Isak or Guimaraes.

    That is value for the money, not blowing our transfer kitty on 1 player.

    1. Certainly not an annual event. Declan Rice was worth what we paid, because of his talent, potential growth, the need for a midfielder, and the England premium on the price. Maybe not really “half the price”, but a bargain nonetheless. It doesn’t seem to be worth 100 million to replace Haavertz up top though. I like buying younger players with potential like the ones you mention.

  2. If Arsenal can buy Youssouf Fofana for £17m to £25 million, why would they pay treble that for Guimaraes?
    Also why would they pay £100 million for Isak when they could get a world class striker like WIRTZ for the same amount?
    Also I thought Newcastle have to sell to avoid FA punishment or is that untrue?
    Arsenal can get better players for less money without bailing out a rival top 6 side, by paying over the price to help them avoid FA punishment. It doesn’t make any sense to do so unless these players were offered at a good discount price.

  3. It’s a pity that both of them are at the same club because adding these two players would be us truly competing with City and Real

  4. Arsenal l can go for Gyokeres first or Sesko as an alternative. I will like them to have Guimeres and let Partey go. Let us get Guimeres,forget about Isak and buy Gyokeres.We must not undermined the midfield.

    1. Gyoreres and Guimeres are £100m each, can not afford both, struggle to buy even one and cover the other areas that need strengthening

      agreed though that midfield, and particularly defensive midfield is our biggest priority

      so on that rationale Guimeres over Gyoreres
