'You had one job LFC': Liverpool fans react as Alexander Isak signs new contract
Liverpool fans have been giving their thoughts on social media after hearing that Sweden striker, Alexander Isak, has signed a new contract.
The Real Sociedad star has put pen to paper on a new contract which will see him through until 2026. However, there is more to the deal than just the new terms.
Sociedad are said to have bought out Isak’s buyback clause from Borussia Dortmund. That gives them great leverage going forward, with the Spanish club able to demand big money now for Isak.
The Swedish forward is without a goal in Euro 2020. But, his performances have been more than eye-catching, and he’s got two assists to go along with his fine performances. The Reds, as well as Arsenal, were thought to be keen on him.
Liverpool fans, then, have been having their say on missing out on Isak on Twitter over the last 24 hours.
Donyell Malen the man for Liverpool now?
While there’s a disappointment in missing out on Isak, it does seem some Liverpool fans are not too downbeat. Of course, there are some on social media who aren’t best pleased as seeing the Swede commit his future to Sociedad.
Thoughts will now turn to just who Liverpool will sign. One of the names mentioned yet again is Donyell Malen. The Dutch forward is expected to leave PSV, with the Reds one of the clubs keen on him.
Here, then, is a look at what some Liverpool supporters had to say as Isak signed his fresh terms in Spain.
Isak just renewed his contract at Sociedad, I hate this game
You had one job @LFC

Isak just signed a new contract. I think Malen is the best option but I don’t think FSG will be willing to get the cheque book out without selling players first. #LFC
