Ray Parlour says Arsenal would 'love to have' Euro 2020 star, Gunners have reportedly entered talks

Ray Parlour has told TalkSPORT (Friday, 6.35AM) that Arsenal “would love” to sign Sweden’s Euro 2020 striker Alexander Isak. Reports have emerged that the Gunners are interested in signing the Real Sociedad ace. Asked about Isak, Parlour stated his Arsenal would love to sign him this summer.

Isak, 21, has been in sensational form over the last 12 months. Scoring 17 goals for Real Sociedad during 2020-21, the Sweden ace already has 25 caps for his country. He has started all three of Sweden’s group games, laying on an assist in a 3-2 win over Poland. Arsenal are said to be interested.

According to AS, Real Madrid are interested in Isak but so are Arsenal – and it appears the Gunners have made the first move to get him. They have opened talks, according to the Spanish newspaper, with Sociedad. He has a clause of £60million but Parlour believes Arsenal would love to sign him.

“He’s as a really good tournament,” Parlour told TalkSPORT this morning. “My arsenal team would love to have him. He’s got a massive release clause, £57m I think. good feet really quick, powerful. He’s really exciting and has been excellent for Sweden.”

Arsenal transfer news: Can The Gunners get Isak, following Parlour claim?

Isak is shining for Sweden. Alongside Emil Forsberg, Isak has been Sweden’s most-effective player so far. His run against Spain almost saw Sweden to the unthinkable and score against Luis Enrique’s side – only for Marcus Berg to inexplicably shoot over from two yards out. One of Euro 2020’s starlets.

It completely depends on Isak’s price tag. Arsenal are about to spend £50million on Ben White. How much do they have left? Do they have the kind of spending power still left in the bank to get Isak? Well, if Sociedad want a fee of around £40million, then they should sign him.

His release clause, though, is too high and better, cheaper alternatives are out there.
