Alexander Isak on Arsenal’s radar ahead of summer transfer window.

Premier league leaders, Arsenal are looking to equip their forward line next season, with first and second choice strikers, Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah struggling through injuries. According to reports, the North London club is showing great interest in Newcastle’s striker, Alexander Isak. The Swedish striker was signed for a whooping €70 million from Real Sociedad and has scored twelve Premier League goals this season and will be the perfect fit to lead Arteta’s men. It is however unsure if Newcastle will be willing to sell the player in the summer.

Real Madrid prepared to give Andriy Lunin an improved contract.

Ukrainian goalkeeper, Andriy Lunin has stepped up for Real Madrid since Thibaut Courtois’ heartbreaking injury. The 25 year-old has kept ten clean sheets in 23 games played this season, conceding 19 goals within this span. Real Madrid is now prepared to reward Lunin’s consistency with a new contract. His present contract is set to expire in 2025 and while the negotiations are still in the early stages, the club is making their trust clear but it will depend on Lunin’s decision to either remain the second choice goalkeeper when Courtois returns or seek more first team football elsewhere.
