Arsenal target Alexander Isak, in shock can be blockbuster transfer

Arsenal

Arsenal are eyeing a new striker, with one player compared to the great Thierry Henry said to be on the radar.

Arsenal are poised to move for a striker compared to all-time top scorer Thierry Henry, as they look to solve their woes in front of goal.

The Gunners recorded 61 shots in their last three games but mustered just a single goal,

With a different forward starting in each fixture. Gabriel Jesus blanked against West Ham United before New Year’s Day saw Eddie Nketiah start against Fulham. Kai Havertz then led the line against Liverpool in the FA Cup.

With fans clamouring for a new frontman and the team looking devoid of a cutting edge up front,

Mikel Arteta is looking to bring in new blood this month to keep Arsenal’s title hopes alive.

Arsenal looking for a striker

According to Football Transfers, the Gunners are keen on rekindling interest in Newcastle United striker, Alexander Isak

Arsenal were keen on the Swede during his time at Real Sociedad and were heavily link with him in the January transfer window of 2021.

Now at the Magpies, Isak has been excellent under Eddie Howe, drawing comparisons to Thierry Henry for his long-legged style, power, pace and finishing ability.

While Newcastle have FFP concerns hanging over them, they may be convince to accept a bid for a player who has struggled at times to stay fit. Unfortunately for Arsenal, however, they likely don’t have the money to make a move happen this January without significant sales. 

It remains to be seen whether or not Arsenal view Isak as worth the money,

Given that Newcastle may demand something close to £100 million for the forward. 

Bruno Guimaraes has a release clause to that value in his contract 

So it stands to reason that the Gunners would have to pay a similar amount for Isak,

And make sure they do so before something else triggers a move for Bruno.
