Chelsea make approach for Alexander Isak

Premier League heavyweights Chelsea have reportedly submitted an enquiry for 24-year-old Newcastle United mainstay Alexander Isak.

According to a report by Daily Mail, Alexander Isak is the subject of interest from Chelsea. The Blues are scouring the market for a striker heading into the summer transfer window. They have already submitted an enquiry for the 24-year-old attacker, although they will need to break their transfer record to sign him from Newcastle United.

The rise of Alexander Isak at Newcastle United

Alexander Isak has established himself as a pivotal figure for Newcastle United since arriving from Real Sociedad in a big-money move in August 2022. The Swedish international struggled to stamp his authority at his previous clubs but has gone from strength to strength in the last two years at the Tyneside club.

The 24-year-old became a prolific striker in the 2023/24 season, amassing 25 goals and two assists in less than 3,000 minutes of game time across 40 appearances across all competitions. Meanwhile, Isak’s progress has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe.

La Liga heavyweights like Barcelona and Real Madrid have shown interest in the former Real Sociedad striker, hoping to bring him back to Spain. However, a move across the Premier League will likely materialise if Isak leaves Newcastle United, with Chelsea among his prospective suitors.

London calling?

Chelsea’s interest in Alexander Isak is understandable. The Blues are scouring the market for a productive striker heading into the summer transfer window. While Marc Guiu will arrive from Barcelona in a few days, Chelsea should sign another centre-forward who can hit the ground running at Stamford Bridge.

Isak is thus a viable target for Chelsea heading into the summer transfer window, with the Newcastle United mainstay having the quality to be an upgrade on Nicolas Jackson. However, the Blues must shatter their transfer record to sign the Swede, with Newcastle demanding a premium to ward off his suitors.

In addition, the Magpies want to tie the 24-year-old to sign a new contract to bump up his valuation. Talks between the two parties have reportedly progressed in the last few days. So, a summer move to Chelsea will unlikely see the light of day.
