Alexander Isak admits "it would be nice to play in England" in boost to Arsenal

Swedish striker Alexander Isak has admitted it would be nice to play football in England amid links with Arsenal.

Isak impressed for the Scandinavian side at Euro 2020, and rumours about an impending move to the Premier League began to grow.

However, the Swede stayed put at Real Sociedad, but in a recent interview, he has opened the door for a move to the English top flight.

Isak's contract currently runs through to the summer of 2026, but that may not put Mikel Arteta off.

Arteta is currently in the market for an attacker, and Isak could prove to be their man.

Speaking to the Independent Isak said: "I’m in a good place at the moment, I’m very happy, but one day it would be nice to play in England as well.

"They have six or seven of the biggest clubs in the world, it’s a very high level, and of course one day it would be an alternative.

"Every player wants to be the best version of themselves and reach the highest possible level.

"I have expectations for myself that I’m trying to fulfil, so we’ll see where the journey takes me in future."

The 22-year-old has found the back of the net five times for La Real so far this season.

And Isak is well on the way to matching his 17 strikes in La Liga last time out.

Isak did sign a new deal over the summer, but his new contract reportedly contains an £80million release clause.

Arsenal could find themselves thin on the ground in the striking department with both Alexandre Lacazette's and Eddie Nketiah's contracts expiring in the summer.
