Alexander Isak may have dropped a big hint that he is ready to complete a move to Arsenal after being spotted in London and registering a car in the UK, it has been reported.
The Real Sociedad striker is said to be one of Gunners boss Mikel Arteta’s top transfer targets after the club missed out on Dusan Vlahovic, who has now sealed his switch to Juventus.
Despite sharing his delight after moving to the Italian giants on his birthday, Vlahovic has been told by Italy legend Antonio Cassano exactly why the move he opted for was “sensationally wrong”.
It comes as Arsene Wenger’s comments about Granit Xhaka have surfaced – and they prove the midfielder’s Arsenal career was doomed from the start.
Vlahovic decision ‘sensationally wrong’
Dusan Vlahovic has been told his decision to move to Italian giants Juventus was “sensationally wrong” by Antonio Cassano.
Vlahovic, who has scored 17 goals in 21 games this season, made the switch from Fiorentina to Juve this week despite Arsenal pushing hard to land his signature.
But Cassano thinks the player is a poor fit in Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri’s preferred tactical set-up and Vlahovic “needed to make an intermediate step to a team like Arsenal”.
Isak drops Arsenal ‘hint’
Alexander Isak has been spotted in London amid transfer links with Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal, it has been claimed.
The Gunners are thought to have been following Isak’s development for some time and reports suggest they could turn their attentions towards the Swedish striker after missing out on Dusan Vlahovic.
And Isak has this week reportedly been seen in a bar in Kingly Court in Soho, and spotted while out on a shopping trip with Sociedad teammate Adnan Januzaj.
It is also claimed that a Rolls Roys with the number plate ‘I5 AAK’ has been registered in the UK this month and that the player has been seen in it.
