Ex-Arsenal star Theo Walcott believes Newcastle United’s Isak could be the ideal summer signings for the Gunners.

Isak had an incredible season for the Toon this campaign and notched 24 goals for the club – but his performances has led to alot of speculation in the media that ARSENAL are interested in a potential deal.

It has been suggested on many occasions that Newcastle will not be keen on selling the big striker – but despite all that – there is still talk that the Gunners board will make an offer to try and get the Swedish star all signed up.

However, The Telegraph reports that Newcastle are not contemplating selling Isak this summer, with Eddie Howe considering the Sweden international as a focal part of his future plans.

But Sky Bet have Arsenal at odds of 5/1 to sign the Newcastle striker, with PSG (16/1) and Manchester United (25/1). as a fee of over £100million has been suggested

And amid the speculation – Walcott has recently admitted that Isak, or Ollie Watkins, would be a very good signing for Mikel Arteta: ‘Arsenal did great, they competed throughout the whole season and learnt a lot from previous mistakes,’ Walcott told The Sun.

‘I think what Mikel Arteta has done and the atmosphere at Arsenal is incredible. What we are missing is a striker, and to have that balance on the bench.

‘I’d say that’s the one thing, maybe Mikel didn’t trust his bench as much.

‘I’m looking at someone like an Alexander Isak or an Ollie Watkins who’s been established in the Premier League.

‘We may look abroad but I’m a big believer in someone who is proven in the Premier League.’

There has been alot said about the future of Isak and where he could end up this transfer window – but he is certainly a player that would improve that Gunners midfield.

If ARSENAL wants him – they will get him – it is that simple.
