ARSENAL have reportedly ‘contacted’ Alexander Isak’s entourage over a summer transfer – but they want Real Sociedad to waive his £76million release clause.

The Gunners are desperate for striker reinforcements after ripping up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s contract last month.

They also missed out on signing Dusan Vlahovic to Juventus while Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette will both become free agents in June.

Boss Mikel Arteta wants the Swedish forward to lead his line in the Premier League next season.

But a fresh report states that the North London club are only willing to do business if Sociedad agree a few lower than his release clause.

And Sport also state that Arsenal have ‘contacted’ his representatives over a move.

However, the in-demand Isak would prefer to join Barcelona.

The same publication also claims that the 22-year-old is only on the Nou Camp side’s list of targets as a ‘Plan B’ should they fail to land Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

That means that the Gunners are a ‘serious competitor’ for his signature and hopes are high that they can persuade Sociedad to lower their demands to an ‘out-of-market price’.

But they will still face a difficult task to convince him that his future should be in England.

This latest report also adds that the player is ‘clear’ that his priority is to go to Barcelona.

And that he is willing to wait for Barcelona to decide on a swoop before ‘deepening negotiations with Arsenal’ over a deal.
