Striker’s goal-scoring drought could help Arsenal to sign him

Arsenal remains interested in a move for Alexander Isak as the Swede continues developing his game.

The Real Sociedad frontman has been one of the finest young strikers in Europe over the last few seasons.

He was also impressive for the Sweden national team at Euro 2020, which attracted the attention of Arsenal.

He was expected to build on his form in that competition when he returned to club football.

However, that hasn’t necessarily been the case as he struggles for goals in this campaign.

His current release clause stands at 80m euros, a fee that Sociedad has insisted is paid before he leaves the club.

However, Sport says his recent goal drought has opened the door for them to reconsider their asking price.

The report claims they could now allow him to leave for a lesser fee than his release clause.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Isak has been doing well for himself at Sociedad, and the 22-year-old could easily get better with the right coaching.

However, Arsenal needs a striker that will hit the ground running immediately he joins the club.

If we sign more than one attacker, then we can add Isak, but he cannot become our main goal-scorer on his current form.

    1. Might as well have kept blunt Auba instead of spending £60 million on another blunt striker.
      Makes perfect sense.

  1. If arsenal could secure top four then i think they can try to sign haaland.

    his club release clause very much affordable for arsenal so it just down to personal term with the superstar striker, i know it wont be easy but hey assuming we have the CL football and money to offer, then why not give it a try.

    and we also have odegaard, his national football friends in arsenal maybe he can tempt him to join if we have everything he needs.

    1. I agree actually, I think it’s like 70/80 mil only for him…..put a bid up in the first hour of the transfer window to show intent, then comes the hard part….for MA and Edu to determine if he is interested or not within a few days(last saga went on for weeks when it was obvious to everyone the player wasn’t keen).

      1. yepp, arsenal did mistakes by waiting for too long for vlahovic, it shouldn’t happen again. they should give like 2 weeks to see if he has interest in arsenal and if he don’t then arsenal should move on to another one.

    2. Haaland is demanding somewhere around 550,000 per week and CL football. And Arsenal’s name itself carry a big weight. Plus Haaland’s release clause is not a problem for Kroenke.

      I don’t find any reason for Haaland to refuse Arsenal’s knock this coming transfer window.

      1. yes, i read somewhere this big guy does have big demand of 577.000 pound a week to or 30 million pounds a year.

        Auba earn a around 250.000 (before bonus), lacazette 180.000, eddie 45.000 plus the wages of other player that arsenal gonna release. So yeah, arsenal shouldn’t have problem with it.

        But i won’t be surprised either if edu and arteta go for cheaper striker..

  2. Ronaldo, Lautaro M., Harry Kane, all had droughts this season. Does that make them bad or blunt strikers??? If the guy fits our profile and the prize is right we should get him. Class is permanent, form temporal…

  3. Arsenal shouldn’t spend 70-80 m on one player. Rather look for proven goal scorer in England in PL or championship or from South America. Also Pepe should be used more or sold /replaced.

  4. This guy is over rated. Had good euros and that is it. I have faith in the scouting team after picking out dusan. If we get champions league I feel we should defjnayley go in for haaaland. We are arsenal our name surely carried weight especially in CL

  5. How about with Kroenke’s “promise” of financial support, Odegaard approaches his best mate Haarland to come to the Emirates to join the Arsenal “project”.

  6. Should bid for Haaland at least, release cause we can afford so it’s down to his interest and wages. Without CL though it has no chance, so concentrate on other targets.

    Isak at half his release clause maybe, but I don’t think he’s the striker for us. We need someone to come in and score 18-20 PL goals.

    Can we really afford to spend that much AND wait for him to reach his potential?
