Barcelona are ready to compete with Arsenal for the signature of Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak in the summer.
It is no secret that acquiring a new striker – or even two – is high on the priority list for Mikel Arteta I the summer.
Pierre Emerick Aubameyang has left the club – for Barcelona – and Alexander Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are both expected to leave the Emirates when their contracts expire in June.
That leaves the unproven Flo Balogun -currently on loan at Middlesbrough – as the only recognised senior forward ion their books.
Isak was a transfer in January, but the club made no move for him in the end, because they felt he was over-valued, and preferred to wait until the summer, hoping that his price would drop.
Now though it looks like Barcelona could rival The Gunners for him if they fail to secure their main transfer target, Erling Haaland.
