Liverpool fans react as club reportedly battling Arsenal for Euro 2020 Sweden star
Liverpool have reportedly joined the race to sign Real Sociedad star Alexander Isak this summer. The striker has been sensational over the past 12 months in La Liga, and impressed for Sweden against Spain in his nation’s Euro 2020 opener. Liverpool fans have reacted on Twitter.
Isak, 21, scored a goal every two games last season for Sociedad – after clocking up 17 goals in 34 league games. The striker has continued that form his club side with his country. During Sweden’s 0-0 draw against Spain, he was excellent – and almost produced a sparkling assist.
Spanish newspaper Noticias de Gipuzkoa have claimed that Liverpool are looking for a long-term replacement for Roberto Firmino. Isak’s form for club and country has convinced those at Liverpool that he might be the ideal option to take over. He has a release clause worth £60million.
What have Liverpool fans said about Isak?
However, Liverpool will not be alone in their pursuit of Isak. The Athletic claimed earlier this month that Arsenal are keeping tabs on Isak. But both sides may struggle to spend as much as £60million on a striker – especially when other areas are in need of improvement in the transfer window.
Liverpool fans reacted to the reports that the Reds want to sign Isak this summer. Many believe he would be a good signing for the Merseyside outfit. One fan even claimed that Isak would “fit like a glove”.
