Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has lost prominence at Arsenal, and following a “disciplinary breach”, the Gunners confirmed last month that he will no longer be club captain.
The 32-year-old has not featured since coming off the bench in his side’s 2-1 defeat to Everton on December 6th.
Aubameyang’s strike partner, Alexandre Lacazette, has less than six months left on his contract and has so far not signed a new deal at the Emirates. The situation with these two players has seen the north London club look for a new forward.
Recent claims in England have pointed out that Mikel Arteta’s side are interested in Real Sociedad star Alexander Isak and would be willing to pay €50m for his transfer.
These claims are relayed by AS, who then provide the La Liga side’s stance on his possible sale in the winter market.
It’s explained La Real have ‘not received any formal proposal’ from the Premier League side nor has there been any talks between the two clubs for the Sweden international.
Real Sociedad are ‘not interested’ in listening to any offers and if Arsenal want to sign Isak this month, then they will refer to his €90m release clause.
Isak has eight goals and two assists in all competitions this season and the newspaper adds the player doesn’t seem to have any intention to leave the Spanish club in January.
Therefore, Arsenal may find it complicated to convince both Isak and Real Sociedad for a transfer in the ongoing window.
