Kevin Campbell: ‘Perfect, exactly what Arsenal needed’

Former Gunners Kevin Campbell has believed Real Sociedad’s Alexander Isak would be the perfect signing for Arsenal.

The Gunners have been linked with a number of excellent attacking players in past transfer windows, but have yet to bring in a new striker since the departure of Arsene Wenger. However, that looks set to change in the near future, with two of their top three picks out of contract next summer, while former captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is close to leaving the Emirates. .

 Arteta needs to add strength in attack.

And former Gunner Kevin Campbell recommended Alexander Isak to Mikel Arteta. Campbell said: ” I like Isak. He is a young striker, strong, really comprehensive.

 Isak not only knows how to score but he can also link the game, he knows how to run behind the defense and win in mid-air duels. Having that all-round striker is really important for Arsenal – as I’ve said a long time ago.

It is important that Isak is young and approachable. Obviously, he will have to grow and learn, but he is perfect, exactly what Arsenal need .”

Indeed, Isak has proven his talent in Spain as well as at EURO 2020 with the Swedish national team. He would fit in well with Arsenal’s recent transfer policy, with Mikel Arteta prioritizing signing young, potential players.
