In December, Fabrizio Romano claimed Arsenal were looking to sign an “important” striker in 2022.

And recent speculation suggests the Gunners have launched a big-money bid for Dusan Vlahovic.

In September last year,’s Chris Wheatley claimed there’s “certainly interest” in Isak from Arsenal.

This was despite the 22-year-old penning a new long-term contract at Real Sociedad last summer.

And Ferdinand reckons Isak would be ideal for Arsenal.

‘He will be a good signing,” he said on Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE. “Another young talented player.

“He has done really well in the Euros for Sweden, I thought. He is a talented player, man.’”

Isak has scored seven goals in 22 appearances for Sociedad so far this season.

This is after impressing for Sweden at Euro 2020 last summer.

Arsenal icon Ray Parlour loved what he saw from the striker at the tournament.

“He’s had a really good tournament,” Parlour told TalkSPORT.

“My Arsenal team would love to have him.

“Good feet, really quick, powerful. He’s really exciting and has been excellent for Sweden.”
