Romelu Lukaku makes exciting five-word prediction for Arsenal and Liverpool linked striker
Romelu Lukaku is predicting big things in the future from striker Alexander Isak, who is being linked with Premier League duo Arsenal and Liverpool.
Isak, 21, currently plays his club football in Spain with Real Sociedad.
The centre-forward is under the spotlight right now due to some impressive displays at Euro 2020 with Sweden.
Apparently, Gunners technical director Edu is an admirer of his, but he does have a €70million (£60.2million) release clause.
Belgium and Inter Milan striker Lukaku has made a five-word claim about the future of his younger counterpart.
“Future is bright for him,” Lukaku said.
Isak a great option for Arsenal or Liverpool
Lukaku is someone who knows what it takes to be a success in English football, so it’ll be interesting to see if Isak tries to replicate him.
Isak was a real threat during the 2020/21 season at Sociedad, scoring 17 goals in 44 games across all competitions.
It looks like he could cut the grade in the Premier League. For instance, he’s got the power and physique that would see him cope.
However, there is a surprise turn of pace that he possesses, too.
Arsenal possibly need a new forward to compete with what they’ve got at the Emirates Stadium. Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool definitely need a traditional frontman.
