Liverpool have made progress in their attempts to sign promising Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak this summer, according to a fresh transfer rumour.
The Lowdown: Isak one of Europe’s top talents
The 22-year-old has emerged as arguably one of Europe’s best young attacking talents in recent years, scoring seven goals and registering two assists this season.
The Sociedad man has been linked with a move to Liverpool in recent days and an encouraging update has now emerged.
The Latest: Liverpool make progress
It is stated that it is not yet an ‘official’ offer, but the La Liga outfit are said to hold ‘fear’ the player will be tempted by a big move away.
The Verdict: Magnificent prospect
Isak looks like a player of immense potential so the idea of Liverpool making a move for him this summer is hugely exciting, as they plan for the long-term future.
That being said, the Swede is already at a point in his career where he demands regular playing time and it is hard to see how Jurgen Klopp could guarantee him that at Anfield.
Liverpool already have Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino as top-class options, so Isak would have to accept being a squad player to begin with.
The only way a move would make complete sense is if one of Salah, Mane or Firmino moved on this summer, with the trio all out of contract in 2023, meaning this is the Reds’ last chance to earn big money for them.
