Arsenal may have dodged a bullet in the summer transfer window by opting against a move to sign Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak to bolster Mikel Arteta’s attacking options.
The Gunners entered the off-season considering changes to the Emirates Stadium frontline after a poor campaign last term. But centre-forwards stayed away from north London with Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette staying with captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Arsenal Technical Director Edu was a big fan of potentially prising Isak from Real Sociedad to improve Arteta’s ranks. That’s according to The Athletic, who noted Edu and his transfer team rate the Sweden international very highly.
