Can Newcastle keep their star player despite demand from big clubs?

Alexander Isak is having a fantastic season, which naturally resulted in interest in him. Newcastle United are confident they will be able to keep the star player. He may receive record money – says Graeme Bailey.

Will Isak not join a top Premier League club?

With two rounds before the end of the season, Alexander Isak remains in the fight for the crown of the Premier League’s top scorer. He has little chance for it, because Erling Haaland, the leader in the most effective scoring category, scored five more goals. This does not change the fact that 20 goals in a team that lags behind the best in the competition is a very impressive result. The Swedish sniper is having a great season, earning him interest from the biggest clubs in Europe.

Isak is on the wish list of teams such as Arsenal, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain. The 24-year-old is considered a complete striker who combines fantastic dynamics and technique with his physical abilities. His effectiveness has made him a desirable commodity on the transfer market.

How does Newcastle United view this matter? The club believes that the star will not go anywhere this summer. Moreover, he will soon be offered a contract that will make him the highest-paid player in the history of the Magpies. This should be enough to keep him at St. James’ Park.

However, if Isak presses to change the club, Newcastle United will demand huge amounts of money, up to EUR 100 million. This, in turn, should not deter Arsenal, which treats signing a top-class striker as a priority.
