Newcastle United determined to keep Alexander Isak, confident of doing so

Newcastle United striker Alexander Isak has been linked with a move away from the Tyneside club this summer.

According to a report from Football London, Arsenal and Chelsea are keen on signing 24-year-old Swedish striker Alexander Isak. But Newcastle are confident of retaining the 24-year-old attacking mainstay if a report from Football Insider is to be believed.

Isak has established himself as one of the best strikers in the league, and it is no surprise that the top clubs are keen on him. Newcastle United were overly dependent on the Swede for goals last season, and they cannot afford to let him leave. He has been an indispensable asset for them.

His departure would weaken Newcastle heavily, and they might struggle to push for European qualification without him. Meanwhile, the Swedish international will certainly want to compete at the highest level, and it will not be a surprise if he is attracted to the idea of playing for clubs like Arsenal or Chelsea

He managed to score 25 goals across all competitions last season. The 24-year-old could transform Arsenal in the attack. The Gunners must bring in a quality replacement for Gabriel Jesus, who scored just four goals in the league last season. Arsenal will need a better player if they want to win the league title.

Meanwhile, Nicolas Jackson was quite underwhelming for Chelsea and the Blues need a reliable goalscorer and have set their sights on Alexander Isak. The Swede has the quality to improve both teams, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.

Isak might fancy Arsenal and Chelsea move

Arsenal and Chelsea are among the biggest clubs in the country, and the opportunity to play for them will be attractive for most players. Furthermore, Newcastle United are going through financial limitations, and they might need to raise funds in order to comply with the PSR regulations.

It will be interesting to see if Arsenal and Chelsea can come forward with a lucrative proposal to tempt the Magpies. Newcastle are one of the wealthiest clubs in the world, and they have an ambitious project.

They will hope to challenge for major trophies in the coming seasons. However, the Magpies cannot afford to overspend and they will have to comply with the financial regulations. The only way Newcastle would sanction the departure of a key player like Isak would be to balance their books.
