Alexander Isak has pledged his allegiance to Newcastle despite being linked with Arsenal and Tottenham. The forward is in-demand after scoring 25 goals in all competitions last season, including 21 in the Premier League.

Both North London clubs are expected to strengthen their respective attacks over the coming months. Isak has been linked with the duo after a successful season on Tyneside.

But the 24-year-old insists that he has not considered a summer transfer, even though Newcastle failed to qualify for Europe after their Champions League campaign last term. He says that he is perfectly content with life in the city.

“I’m really, really happy at Newcastle,” the 24-year-old told Swedish publication Fotbollskanalen.

“I had my best season of my career. You can’t underestimate that. I love everything about the club, the fans, the city.

“I don’t really have any thoughts of moving or anything like that. I’m having a great time and I’m very happy with my life.”

Newcastle will be able to demand a substantial fee for Isak as they have him contracted until at least 2028. The Magpies will expect a profit on the £63m they paid Real Sociedad to sign the Sweden international in 2022.

Isak, who was spotted deep in conversation with PIF chief Yasir Al Rumayyan after the final day of the campaign, endured an injury-hit first season in English football but shone under Eddie Howe last term. He caught the eye of several Premier League rivals.

Arsenal are expected to strengthen their attack this summer after missing out on the top-flight title by two points. Kai Havertz led the Gunners’ forward line for much of the 2023-24 season, scoring 13 top-flight goals.

Mikel Arteta has been strongly linked with a move for RB Leipzig’s Benjamin Sesko. The Slovenian forward, 21, scored in each of his final seven Bundesliga matches last season. He bagged 14 goals in his debut campaign in Germany and has admirers across Europe, with Arsenal reportedly set to be rivalled in a pursuit by Manchester United.

Meanwhile, Spurs could also sign a new forward and have been linked with Isak. Richarlison was often used as a centre-forward in the aftermath of Harry Kane’s departure on the eve of the Premier League season.

However, eight of the Brazil international’s 11 top-flight goals were scored across a two-month period during the winter. Richarlison has recently been linked with an exit from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, although he rubbished that speculation last week.
