Report: Arsenal is now the favorite club to sign an ‘incredible’ £70 million striker who has been compared to the legendary Thierry Henry… 



Arsenal emerges as the frontrunner to secure the services of the highly-rated £63m striker, who has drawn comparisons to legendary player Thierry Henry.


Arsenal’s interest in Newcastle United’s Alexander Isak has been widely discussed in recent months, and the rumors surrounding this potential transfer are gaining momentum.


Journalist Simon Collings has even mentioned that the Gunners have extensively scouted the 24-year-old and have made significant progress in their pursuit.


According to GiveMeSport, Arsenal now seems to be the frontrunners in securing a deal for Isak.


The Newcastle club is reportedly concerned about their star striker attracting significant attention during the summer transfer window, according to sources cited by the outlet.


Throughout the season, there has been speculation surrounding Arsenal’s need for a traditional number 9 player, a position that is currently vacant in their squad.


Despite having a formidable attacking line that has been scoring consistently this season, none of their players possess the ability to consistently score 20 or more goals in a season.


In addition to the rumored interest in Ivan Toney and Viktor Gyokeres, this report now suggests that Arsenal is likely to secure a deal for Isak.


Arsenal are reportedly the frontrunners to secure the signature of Alexander Isak. The Swedish player has been a standout performer in the Premier League ever since joining Newcastle for a record-breaking £63 million in 2022.


In his debut season, Isak managed to score 10 goals for Newcastle despite facing injuries during the first half of the campaign. This season, the 24-year-old has continued to impress, netting 16 goals in 30 appearances across all competitions.


Comparisons have been drawn between Isak and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, a comparison that Isak himself has embraced. Speaking to the Times, he expressed his admiration for Henry, stating, “Henry’s the player I admired growing up, so I can’t complain. I enjoyed that one. They know me in England better now.”


Isak possesses all the qualities of a top talent and would be an excellent choice for the Gunners. With his height, strength, speed, and remarkable finishing skills, he ticks all the boxes.


Arsenal has long been in need of a player to lead their attack, and Isak would be the perfect fit for the job.
