The Mirror has recently reported that Manchester United are keeping a keen eye on Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak. However, it has been revealed that the Red Devils could face competition in the form of Arsenal and Chelsea in pursuit of the Swedish centre-forward.
Isak’s Decent Run Of Form At The Reale Arena
The Solna-born talent has experienced an impressive campaign in Spanish football because he has put in a handful of productive performances as the spearhead of the Sociedad attack. Isak has participated in 26 matches for Imanol Alguacil’s side this season, finding the back of the net on eight occasions and securing two goals across all fronts.
The Sweden international has led the line well based on his average 2.1 shots and 1.4 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga. However, the 22-year-old has to find a way to be tidier with his ball distribution after making 72.4% of his attempted passes in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).
Is Isak A Good Choice For Manchester United?
Isak has transformed himself into a decent finisher in the final third. He has got the knack for creating space for himself to get a few strikes in on-target.
The Sweden international can make some clever runs in behind the opposition backline but needs to work on improving his link-up play in the attacking end of the field.
At 22, Isak has got a very bright future ahead of him, so the Red Devils will do well to win the chase for his services. The Swedish marksman will add a lot of goals to Man United‘s frontline and could serve as an ideal long-term successor to Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford. He has got the potential to become a future star in English football as long as he can continue to improve with each year.
Thus, Isak will be a good choice for the Mancunian giants to consider when the transfer window reopens at the end of this campaign. He could even help Man United secure a top-four place in the Premier League over the next few seasons.
