Speaking on the Don Robbie YouTube channel, Fabrizio Romano has shared an update on Alexander Isak’s transfer status amid rumours Liverpool want to sign him.
The Swedish striker has been starring at Euro 2020, and as you can probably imagine, he’s caught the eye of numerous clubs, including Liverpool and Arsenal.
However, Romano is led to believe that Sociedad don’t want to sell him this summer, stating that they’ll be more open to the idea of letting him go in 2022.
What’s been said?
Romano says that although some clubs are interested in Isak, Sociedad aren’t keen to sell him this summer.
“Yes, he has some chances, but I am told that Real Sociedad want to keep him this summer and sell him in 2022 because they’re convinced he can show some skills and add to his value in one year. It won’t be easy because some clubs are interested, but it will be for over €50m or €60m,” Romano said.
Liverpool may not be able to land the Swedish striker this summer, but they have to be ready to strike in 2022.
Isak looks like a real star of the future, and he has everything you’d want in a number nine, especially in Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Indeed, Isak looks as though he could be a brilliant replacement for Roberto Firmino with his tricky feet and creativity, and when you factor in that he also has an eye for goal, he looks to be the perfect player for the Reds.
Fingers crossed Liverpool go back in for him next year when it sounds like he’ll be on the market.
