Liverpool are preparing to beat Arsenal to sign £ 34m-rated Forward Alexander Isak from Sweden in the January transfer window.
Liverpool are set to make an offer for Real Sociedad forward Alexander Isak ahead of rivals Arsenal in the January transfer window.
The Reds are keen to make an offer that could reach 34 million pounds for the forward, according to reports in Spain.
The 22-year-old has a huge buyout clause of 90 million euros, he is also a Barcelona goal, but Real Sociedad knows that this figure will be almost unthinkable to achieve.
The Swedish international impressed at Euro 2020 and was unlucky not to score, although he did record two assists in his four games.
His 17 league goals in 2020-21 helped Real Sociedad finish fifth in the La Liga table and he has five goals in 13 games in all competitions this season.
Arsenal are looking to replace Alexandre Lacazette and have several names on their wish list, including Alexander Isak, Dusan Vlahovic and Andrea Belotti.
However, Isak appears to be one of the Gunners’ top priorities according to Spanish media reports.
According to The National, Liverpool are planning a move for Isak to strengthen his attack line in January.
Isak is an absolute striker and Jurgen Klopp is looking for an alternative for his current forwards.
The participation of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in the African Cup of Nations in January means that Klopp will be short of forwards and Isak could well be the only solution.
Isak has a contract with the Spanish club until 2026 with a release clause that tells you how high he is in San Sebastián.
