Isak tipped to light up Premier League as Arsenal move on the cards - Campbell

Kevin Campbell has heaped praise on Arsenal target and Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-Gunners striker, who delivered weekly punditry for La Liga TV last season, tipped the 22-year-old to thrive in the Premier League given his attributes.

According to Eurosport‘s Dean Jones (26 November), Isak has emerged as an alternative for Arsenal to Fiorentina’s in-demand striker Dusan Vlahovic.

A move to the Emirates is said to be “particularly interesting” for Isak, who is keen on a Premier League switch.

The Sweden international put pen to paper on a new five-year contract with Real Sociedad in July.

When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his thoughts on a potential move for Isak, Campbell said: “Isak is a very good player.

“He constantly hunts space. He is not playing in the greatest team but he still gets his fair share of goals. Make no mistake, he knows where the goal is.

“He’s big, can hold the ball up and is athletic as well as being a good technical player. You can pop the ball into him and play off him.

“I think his style would suit the Premier League, I really do. He could be a shrewd signing for Arsenal.”

Isak has registered six goals and two assists in 18 appearances across all competitions this season.

He has scored eight times in 31 appearances for his country.
