'To cost £200m next summer': Arsenal fans react as Alexander Isak pens new Sociedad contract
Arsenal won’t be signing Sweden striker Alexander Isak this summer it seems, after the forward penned a new contract with Real Sociedad.
Isak put pen to paper on a new deal which sees him tied to the La Liga outfit until 2026. Crucially, his buy-back clause from Borussia Dortmund has also been bought out by Sociedad.
It puts the Spanish outfit in a strong position. Isak has enjoyed a stunning Euro 2020 campaign and has been linked with a number of clubs, including both Arsenal and Liverpool.
However, despite initially having what was thought to be a £59m buyout clause, Isak’s new deal will likely see that increased. It means, of course, that any future deal will see Real come up trumps in terms of a transfer fee.
With a new deal now in the bag for Isak, Arsenal fans have been having their say on social media.
Moving on quickly?
Gunners fans are normally quick to offer their thoughts on Twitter, and it’s been no different in response to the Isak news.
But while a lot of the times we see big overreactions, this time, it seems, Arsenal supporters aren’t overly fussed.
While some would have liked to see Isak arrive, it’s clear that others feel the money would be better spent elsewhere. Here, then, is what some Gunners fans had to say.
Isak to cost 200M next summer

We don’t need to spent for CF afterall. There’s lot other position to improve

Kind of a good thing. I don’t see why Arsenal want a ST. Yes Isak is good but we already gave contracts to Auba, Balogun and Martinelli. It’s better if we invest this money elsewhere.

No wonder used us to get a better contract nothing else

No it’s just so sociedad can get better deal they bought out Dortmund’s buy back clause so now Real sociedad can make 50 plus profit on him it’s just smart business
