Some Arsenal fans desperate to sign 21-year-old with a 'bit of Henry in him'
A number of Arsenal fans have called on Edu and Mikel Arteta to move for Alexander Isak next year in wake of his latest performance.
The Gunners were linked with the Sweden international in the summer transfer window.
However, Isak signed a new contract at Real Sociedad in July, which will take him to the summer of 2026.
El Desmarque reported that the 21-year-old’s release clause increased from €70million (£60million) to €90million (£77.5million).
But earlier this week, football.london’s Chris Wheatley claimed there’s still “certainly interest” in Isak from Arsenal.
The 6ft 3in ace netted 17 goals in 34 La Liga games last season, and excelled for Sweden at Euro 2020 this summer.
While Isak is yet to get off the mark in the league this term, he netted for Sociedad in the Europa League 2-2 draw at PSV on Thursday.
The attacking prodigy slid home at the back post to put his side 2-1 up in the 39th minute.
Cue Arsenal fans once again praising his efforts and calling for the club to sign him:
If we're serious Isak is the correct option https://t.co/yH8T5lxR7F— 🇳🇬 (@AFC_DEEZY) September 16, 2021
I really want Isak at Arsenal man 😪— 🌶 (@AFCZyla) September 16, 2021
Alexander Isak is a physical demon, tall, agile, frightening potential for development into his frame and still ever so young. Alexander Isak will transform Arsenal Football Club and restore its place among the elite, I feel the come up in my soul ⭐️— shay☀️ (@maupayuracheat) September 16, 2021
Abraham is a decent CF wasn't the answer for Arsenal IMO.— . (@FootyMerchant) September 17, 2021
Calvert Lewin or Isak will be the answer for the next 5-7 yrs.👍
Love Isak. As Arsenal fans keep saying, he's got a bit of Henry in him. Would love him at Arsenal next year— Sideline Sports (@SidelineSport_) September 16, 2021
@Arsenal just need Isak and Osimhen in, a season to bed in and finally take over Auba and Laca. It would be the best front 2 in the league.— BacunaSakala (@haggiswonton) September 17, 2021
