In a recent print edition, AS stated that Liverpool have joined the race to recruit Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak this summer. It is understood that the Reds could face competition from Chelsea and Arsenal in pursuit of the Swedish centre-forward during this summer transfer window (transcripted and translated by Sport Witness).
Isak’s Impressive Season In Spanish Football
The Solna-born talent has caught the eye with his performances for Sociedad after putting in some memorable displays as the spearhead of their attack. The 21-year-old featured in 44 matches for the Spanish club last season, scoring 17 goals and securing two assists across all fronts.
Isak has performed well to average 2.4 shots, 1.1 dribbles and won 1.2 aerial duels per game in the previous La Liga campaign. However, he needs to work on improving his accuracy when interchanging possession with his teammates in the opposition half, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 72.7% in the Spanish top-flight (stats via whoscored).
The Swedish sensation has shown some signs of his maturity during his time in Spain. Hence, it is no wonder that the Reds have decided to join the chase to acquire the services of the promising striker in this off-season.
What Will The Swedish Striker Add To Jurgen Klopp’s Side?
Isak is a quick and agile forward who can make a few dangerous sprints behind the opponent’s backline. He can get himself into some promising positions in the final third and is slowly transforming himself into a lethal finisher in front of the opponent’s goal.
The 23-time Sweden international has already begun to prove his worth in Spanish football but there are some concerns over whether he can maintain his high standards in the Premier League if the Reds win the race for his services this summer.
At 21, Isak has the potential to become a future star in European football, so he would be a decent long-term signing for the Merseyside outfit in this off-season. We can expect him to add a lot of goals and pace to Jurgen Klopp’s attack that has sometimes struggled to fire on all cylinders last season.
Isak will also offer some healthy competition for Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino for a place in Klopp’s starting XI in the coming seasons. Therefore, Liverpool should think about adding the Swedish frontman to their match-day squad during this summer transfer window.
