Alexander Isak: “It would be nice to play in England one day.”

Alexander Isak has admitted that he would like to try his luck in the Premier League in the future.

“I’m in a good place at the moment, I’m very happy, but one day it would be nice to play in England as well. They have six or seven of the biggest clubs in the world. It’s a very high level and of course one day it would be an alternative. Every player wants to be the best version of themselves and reach the highest level possible,” he told The Independent.

“People will always count goals, I want to score, but I want to be a modern striker. I love playing football and that means being involved as much as possible. I think that’s why Spain has suited me very well,” he continued.

Arsenal appear to be in the best position to land the Swedish striker, as the Gunners are reportedly looking for a replacement for Alexandre Lacazette, who is out of contract next year.

The 22-year-old striker has also been on the radar of Real Madrid and Barcelona, according to AS.

Isak joined the Basque side in the summer of 2019 from Borussia Dortmund. Since then, he has made 101 appearances and scored 38 goals. He extended his contract with La Real this summer until 2026 and has a €90 million release clause.
