Arsenal are gearing up for an active summer transfer window, with their sights set on bolstering their attacking lineup, regardless of their Premier League standing. 

Despite missing out on a new number nine in the January transfer window due to Financial Fair Play concerns, the Gunners are expected to renew their search once the summer market opens.

Manager Mikel Arteta has been vocal about his desire to strengthen the squad, emphasising the need for the right striker to enhance their attacking options. Although the window is still months away, a plethora of names have already been linked with a move to Arsenal.

Among the notable forwards on Arsenal’s radar is Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, who is expected to leave Italy this summer amidst widespread interest. Additionally, Ivan Toney of Brentford and Viktor Gyokeres, currently shining in Portugal, have caught the attention of the Gunners’ scouting network. Benjamin Sesko is also reportedly on Arsenal’s radar.

Recent reports from now.arsenal has now been backed up by the Daily Mail, suggesting that Newcastle United striker Alexander Isak has once again emerged as a target for Arsenal. 

Now.arsenal reported that Mikel Arteta has earmarked Isak as his number one target for the No 9 position at Arsenal next season and the club have admired him since his time at Real Sociedad.


Newcastle wants to keep the Swedish star, but Arsenal remain keen on securing his services, especially with Isak’s impressive goal-scoring record and the club’s return to the Champions League.

While Newcastle’s CEO Darren Eales has acknowledged the possibility of player trading in the modern football landscape, emphasising that every player has their price, it’s evident that Newcastle is not actively looking to sell Isak. However, Arsenal’s continued interest and Isak’s undeniable talent could prolong the speculation surrounding his future.

“If we’re going to get to where we want to get to, at times it is necessary to trade your players. It is counter-intuitive and part of the inherent system of PSR that there is an incentive to trade your players, if you want to re-invest.”

The striker last month responded to speculations linking him with a move away from Newcastle. “It doesn’t affect me that much. It has been talked about many times, in many windows. I see it as just such a thing. Everyone knows that summer is coming and if things show up, things can happen, but I actually haven’t even thought about it,” Isak told Swedish outlet Expressen.
