Arsenal may have to battle Chelsea and Manchester United for Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak, according to reports in England.
The Swedish international was a target for the Gunners in the January transfer window, and they are expected to continue their pursuit in the summer.
However, with two Premier League rivals also interested in Isak, it could complicate matters, and most supporters on Twitter don’t think the 22-year-old is worth the hassle:
Nah they can have him

There are better, cheaper strikers out there.

He is not worth 75 mil.

If Chelsea and United are seriously keen on Isak then Sociedad are much more likely to hold out for the forward’s €90m (£76m) release clause.
For that price, there are better options for Arsenal to pursue, including the likes of Lille’s Jonathan David and even perhaps Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
Recruiting a new number nine will be Edu and Mikel Arteta’s top priority at the end of the season and it is massively important that they can get the right man. Paying £76m for Isak doesn’t look like a good piece of business.
