'The only CF I want at Arsenal': Some fans think £77.5m striker would be perfect for Arteta
Arsenal fans have called for the club to move for Alexander Isak next year in wake of his latest display for Sweden.
The Gunners were linked with the 22-year-old in the summer transfer window.
However, Isak signed a new contract at Real Sociedad in July, which will take him to the summer of 2026.
El Desmarque reported that his release clause increased from €70million (£60million) to €90million (£77.5million).
But in September, football.london’s Chris Wheatley claimed there’s still “certainly interest” in Isak from Arsenal.
The 6ft 3in ace netted 17 goals in 34 La Liga games last season, and excelled for Sweden at Euro 2020 this summer.
This season, Isak has only scored once for Sociedad, but he’s enjoyed a superb October international break, registering two goals and one assist.
He netted in the 3-0 win over Kosovo last week and followed that up by scoring and winning a penalty in the 2-0 win over Greece.
Isak’s effort against Kosovo was a superb curling effort from outside the box after making a mockery of the opposition defence.
And his effort against Greece was also superbly-taken, latching onto a long ball before rounding the keeper and calmly chipping the ball home.
Needless to say, some Arsenal fans are desperate to see him join the Gunners:
