Arsenal are considering a move for Real Sociedad star Alexander Isak amid concerns two of their strikers could leave the club this summer. Alexandre Lacazette finished last season as the club’s top goalscorer with 17 in all competitions but progress over a new contract has stalled. Eddie Nketiah, meanwhile, featured prominently during the early months of Mikel Arteta’s tenure.
Isak shot to prominence with Borussia Dortmund, who retains an option to re-sign the Sweden international for as little as £30m. Although the player himself states the Bundesliga club are already part of his ‘past’.
According to The Athletic, Arsenal’s interest in Isak, who has a £70m release clause in his current contract, is largely driven by technical director Edu who is said to rate the striker highly.
