Alexander Isak responds to transfer rumours amid Arsenal speculation

Isak has expressed his desire to stay at St James Park

Newcastle striker, Alexander Isak, has recently made his feelings clear about the ongoing transfer speculation linking him with a move to Arsenal. Despite the constant chatter, Isak insists he is not looking to leave St James’ Park this summer.

The Swedish international has been at the centre of transfer rumours due to Newcastle's financial situation and their need to balance their books. However, in a recent statement about his future, Isak affirmed that he is solely focused on his current club - The Magpies.

Newcastle striker, Alexander Isak, said:

“I am enjoying myself at Newcastle, and I had the best season in my career – that should not be underestimated I love everything about the club; the fans, and the city. It (my future) is not something I will speculate about, I have no thoughts on leaving.”

Isak also responded to Newcastle’s financial pressure

Isak stated that no one from the club has informed him about being available for transfer. This comes as a relief for fans who have been anxious over losing one of their star players amidst talks of meeting Premier League Profit and Sustainability rules through significant player sales.

Alexander Isak added:

“There has been no talk about it at the club and I have received no information that they would have to sell me.”

Despite all speculations surrounding his potential move away from St James' Park, local journalists and sources have consistently reported that Eddie Howe is not keen on offloading the 24-year-old striker. There were even suggestions that any offers would need to be in the region of £180m for consideration. Isak's impressive performance last season - scoring 25 goals in 40 appearances - makes it evident why The Magpies are so eager to retain him. 

His contribution has been instrumental in strengthening Newcastle’s position and they would undoubtedly want him leading their front line next season as well.

Uncertainty over Bruno Guimaraes' future

While there seems certainty around Isak staying put at St James’ Park this summer, there is less clarity regarding another star player – Bruno Guimaraes. The Brazilian midfielder currently has an active £100m release clause which could potentially see him leaving if triggered by any team before its expiry date at the end of June.

Newcastle fans will be hoping that no team contemplates triggering Guimaraes' release clause, allowing him to stay on and contribute to the club's future success.

Despite the swirling transfer rumours, it appears that Alexander Isak is set to remain at Newcastle. His commitment to the club will be a significant boost for The Magpies as they prepare for the next season. However, with uncertainty still surrounding Bruno Guimaraes' future at St James’ Park, fans will be eagerly waiting for clarity as we approach the summer transfer window.
