ARSENAL fans are hugely excited after transfer target Alexander Isak was spotted in London.
The Real Sociedad and Sweden striker has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates throughout the January window.
And now the Gunners could be closing in on his signature after footage emerged of him in the capital with Real Sociedad team-mate and former Manchester United man Adnan Januzjai.
He was filmed at The Good Egg in Soho after arriving in London ahead of a potential move.
Accompanying the video, the social media clip read: “Isak to Arsenal??”
And Arsenal supporters could not help but get a little carried away about the possibility of Isak signing for them.
One said: “Why come to London this weekend of all weekends ? Could have gone to Madrid for drinks and shopping. Big tease.”
While another added: “That place is two miles away from the Emirates, that can’t be a coincidence, surely?”
It remains to be seen whether or not he is in England attempting to force a move away from Spain.
Isak, 22, has been identified as a potential replacement for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The former Arsenal skipper was stripped of the captaincy last month following a disciplinary breach.
He has not featured for Mikel Arteta since then – but has now returned from the Africa Cup of Nations after failing to play for Gabon due to Covid-related reasons.
But Aubameyang’s future in North London remains up in the air given his recent expulsion from the squad.
The former Borussia Dortmund forward has been linked with a loan move to Barcelona until the end of the season.
And Isak could prove to be the perfect fit if Aubameyang is to leave.

He has scored 41 goals in 114 appearances for Sociedad since arriving from Dortmund in 2019.
And Isak also made an impression for the Swedish national team at Euro 2020, despite failing to hit the back of the net.
The youngster has already netted nine times for his country since making his debut in 2017.
