Signing Alexander Isak “not impossible”

Arsenal forward Alexandre Lacazette has yet to receive a fresh contract offer from the club, despite assurances from boss Mikel Arteta that the Frenchman’s future is due to be resolved.

With a contract situation that is looking more and more likely to end in the former Olympique Lyonnais standout leaving the club on a free transfer in the summer, news via Football.London’s chief Arsenal reporter Chris Wheatley regarding Swedish international Alexander Isak couldn’t have come at a better moment.

Speaking on the Latte Firm podcast, Wheatley refused to rule out the possibility that the club could target a move for the Real Sociedad standout and former Borussia Dortmund wunderkind, though he quickly cooled speculation;

“Not impossible – I don’t think anything is impossible when you’re a club like Arsenal. Arsenal certainly do have money to spend. I don’t think it’s one that’s likely to happen anytime soon, but he is one Arteta likes.”

Isak, who signed a contract extension this summer, is coming off a 2020-21 La Liga campaign which saw the now 21-year-old bag 17-goals and add 2-assists in thirty-four league appearances for Los Txuri-Urdin.

Arsenal not actively targeting Brighton’s Yves Bissouma

Much to the chagrin of countless Arsenal fans on social media, the Gunners are not actively in pursuit of Brighton’s instrumental central midfielder Yves Bissouma.

Also mentioned by Wheatley in his recent podcast appearance, the capital outfit are not in the race to bring the Malian international to the Emirates any time soon.

There have been calls aplenty from the fanbase for Mikel Arteta and club technical director Edu Gaspar to prioritize Bissouma, who has become a midfield mainstay at the Amex Stadium under Graham Potter while drawing attention from other Premier League giants the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool.

A huge jump in club size and the demands that come with it are expected for the former LOSC Lille midfielder, but as it stands, Arsenal are not prepared to go to war for his signature, whether it be in January or the following summer window.
