Arsenal battle EPL rivals for Isak


Arsenal and Tottenham are set to submit bids of around £100 million to sign Alexander Isak from Newcastle United this summer.

Magpies boss, Eddie Howe, is adamant that Isak is not for sale.

But clubs will be hoping to take advantage of their financial situation.

Newcastle chief executive, Darren Eales, has admitted that the club may have to sell some players to comply with profit and sustainability rules (PSR).

“If we’re going to get to where we want to get to, at times it is necessary to trade your players.

“In the world of PSR, everybody has their price,” Eales said.

Isak has been in impressive form this season, scoring 14 goals in 21 Premier League appearances.

The 24-year-old, who is mainly deployed as a centre-forward but can also be used as a winger, is under contract with Newcastle until 2028.

He arrived at St James Park from Real Sociedad in a £60 million deal two years ago.
