Alexander Isak, a Real Sociedad striker, has been spotted driving around London in his Bentley ahead of a possible move to Arsenal.

The image, which shows a black Bentley in central London with a private number plate reading “I5 AAK,” is thought to be one owned by the La Liga striker.

Isak, 22, has long been a long-term target for the Gunners and has been linked with a move to the Emirates.

Despite the fact that there are only two days left in the January transfer window, the Londoners appear to be on the verge of finally getting their man.

Following the signing of Dusan Vlahovic by Juventus, the Gunners have identified the Real Sociedad striker as one of their top targets.

The Serbian turned down a move to the Emirates in order to join the Italian giants.

Mikel Arteta had been pursuing Vlahovic for the majority of the window, but with Deadline Day approaching on Monday, he now needs to look for alternatives quickly.

Isak appears to be at the top of the Spaniard’s shortlist, and reports that he will be in London this weekend have only added fuel to the fire that he could be heading to Arsenal.

It’s not the first time Isak has been linked with a move to the Emirates, as his name was mentioned in the summer when Arsenal was looking for a striker.

After admitting that he aspires to play in England, it appears that this is a move he would seriously consider.

“I am in a good place at the moment, I am very happy, but one day it would be nice to play in England as well,” Isak recently told The Independent.

“They have six or seven of the biggest clubs in the world, it is a very high level, and of course one day it would be an alternative. Every player wants to be the best version of themselves and reach the highest possible level.

“I have expectations for myself that I’m trying to fulfil, so we’ll see where the journey takes me in future.”

Isak revealed his childhood footballing idol was none other than Arsenal legend Thierry Henry in an interview with Min Stora Dag alongside Sweden teammate Dejan Kulusevski.

The rising star also reveals that his game is inspired by the French and that they share similar characteristics.

He said: “I have a lot of football players who I have looked up to & have taken a lot from, but if I have to name one, I would say Thierry Henry, who I have really liked all the time & where I see many qualities that I have tried to follow.”

It’s been suggested that Isak will pay a visit to former teammate and current Arsenal star Martin Odegaard, with whom he spent a season at Sociedad.

Off the field, the pair had a successful partnership, but off the field, they formed an instant connection.

Odegaard revealed that they became ‘best of friends’ after staying in the same hotel together upon their arrival in the summer of 2019 and spending a lot of time with each other in the months that followed.
