£120m Arsenal target spotted having lengthy discussions with club chairman

It has just come to light, that a £120m Arsenal target held talks with a club chairman on Saturday, according to a recent report.

Arsenal are firmly in the race for the Premier League title, though, they are relying on a slip-up by Manchester City.
The Gunners sit one point ahead of City at the summit following their 1-0 win against Manchester United yesterday. However, City have a game in hand away at Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday.

Behind the scenes, club chiefs are already drawing up transfer plans and it has just emerged, that a target held talks with his club chairman on the weekend.

 

Alexander Isak spotted holding talks with Newcastle United chairman
Arsenal have been linked with a £120m move for Newcastle United forward Alexander Isak and on Saturday, he was spotted holding talks with club chairman Yasir Al Rumayyan, according to the Mirror.

Following Newcastle’s 1-1 draw with Brighton on Saturday, the 24-year-old, who has scored 24 goals this season, had a lengthy discussion with Al Rumayyan.

Isak’s family were thought to be present in the talks, though, there is no confirmation if it was transfer-related.

It took place on the St James’ Park pitch, as players and their families thanked the Newcastle faithful for their support in a lap of appreciation

Arsenal may have to look at other targets
Newcastle have been pushing back on rumours of Isak’s departure for weeks now as the club are insistent on not selling any of their prized assets, including Anthony Gordon who has been linked with Liverpool.

Unless The Gunners are prepared to outlay an eye-watering amount on the Sweden international, likely a British transfer record, it seems he’ll be remaining on Tyneside.

Benjamin Sesko has been a name mooted, as has Joshua Zirkzee, so they seem the more viable options at this stage
