Report – Arsenal ready to pay striker’s release clause

Alexander Isak could head to Arsenal this summer with the Gunners prepared to pay his release clause.

The striker has been in fine form for his club and country over the last year and Arsenal has been watching him.

He scored 17 goals for Real Sociedad last season and has followed that up by terrorising defences at Euro 2020.

His form has increased competition for his signature with AS reporting that Real Madrid also wants to sign him.

The report says Los Blancos is facing competition with Arsenal and the Gunners are serious about their intention to sign him.

They haven’t spoken to his current club yet, but they have opened talks with his representatives.

The report says they want to know if he would be willing to join them this summer.

If the Swede agrees to move to the Emirates, Arsenal will pay his release clause of around 70m euros claims the same report.

They will do this to avoid being in the queue for his signature considering that several top teams with European football are also chasing him.

Signing Isak could spell the end of the road for the likes of Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette.

    So we are paying 70m release clause which means 70m upfront, no installments or other payment plan. Lol thanks for the laugh.

  2. DaJuhi says:

    100% BS news.

  3. Elliot says:

    Arsenal are just good at making noise without baking it with action. The striker will definitely go to Real Madrid. No ambition at all at Arsenal.

    Arsenal in advanced talks to sign Ben White for 50 mil – Sky Sports

    1. Eric says:

      Benwhite is now arsenal player

    2. Camarol says:

      70m ??? For player with just 17 gol per season. We already have 17 gol striker per season.

    All talk but no action…I’m not surprised though, as this has been a trend for Arsenal. They should be making a formal bid instead of enquiring about the player.

    Bidding would prove as a statement of intent. So I dont see this move happening, we are linked with every player out there and its boring.

    It would be a great signing, but that is rubbish journalism and I am sorry to say that.

    1. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

      And there will be questions if he is worth the fee, how would he adapt PL but he is talented and has the height for sure.

      1. Ba Elkhirsawy says:

        They might want to look to
        Dominic Calvert-Lewin or Bamford if they have the money.

    The laughable suggestion that our club , owned by that appalling Scrooge Kroenke, would actually stump up £70 mill for any striker in the world, even Ronaldo, is so ridiculous as to be scorned as nonsense by all wise Gooners.

  8. NY_Gunner says:

    He looked decent against Spain. But, when he came up against the heftier Polish fellas, he was easily dealt with… We should pass on him. EPL defenders would make a meal of him.

  9. JW says:

    Really!
    There must be a large brown bag under the table if this deal goes through!
    The premier league is a whole different to where he is playing now.

    Apparently Higuin told Messi not to move to the EPL, because “the defenders are all built like wardrobes”.

    Perhaps some one should warn Isak, in case he is tempted.

  10. Kutoiam says:

    No doubt about the talent, he will definitely evolve like Pepe, if arsenal is really serious they should bid for him instead of paying 60m cus it might come cheaper than paying his full release clause, I think they want to settle the personal terms with him first B4 they bid, i think the deal will go through if lacazette is in the market but nothing about him been said yet
