According to The Athletic, the North Londoners are having doubts over their pursuit of Vlahovic as while they are confident they can strike a deal with the Viola, the same is not true for the striker and his representatives. .

That’s why Arsenal are also keeping tabs on Isak but would only be willing to negotiate a lower price.

Manager Mikel Arteta is badly in need of a new centre-forward as Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah are set to become free agents.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also fell out of favor following another disciplinary foul which cost him the captain’s armband.

Aubameyang has been dropped from Arteta’s squad and is training on his own after his early return from the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Gabon international has received an offer from Al Hilal, who are ready to sign him on loan until the end of the season.

However, the forward doesn’t fancy a move to the Middle East as he’s motivated to continue playing at an elite level in one of Europe’s top leagues.

Paris Saint-Germain are believed to be interested in the 32-year-old but his huge £350,000-a-week salary is a deal breaker.

Isak has been impressive at Sociedad with a total of eight goals and two assists in 25 appearances this season.

The Sweden international has registered 41 goals and seven assists in 114 appearances in all competitions since moving to Anoeta from Borussia Dortmund in 2019.
