Newcastle United could break their transfer record for the 2nd time this year. They identified the Swedish striker Alexander Isak as a possible transfer target. For that, the club is also ready to break their bank and splash the cash.

The Magpies had been very active in this year’s summer transfer window. Since their takeover, Newcastle is in the path of a recovery. They had a tough start int he recently concluded season as they failed to win any of their first 14 Premier League games. But since the appointment of Eddie Howe as the club manager, their on-field performance went uphill. The club also made meaningful additions to the squad in the winter transfer window in January to aid the former Bournemouth manager. That window, the Tyneside outfit made Bruno Guimares their record transfer signing for £42 million.

This summer, the club will enter their first full season under new owners. They also backed Eddie Howe to continue and provided a formidable budget to spend to reinforce the squad. The club made the loanee signing Matt Targett permanent. Moreover, they also cracked deals for Nick Pope and Sven Botman.

Now a decent striker is the prime priority for Howe and the Swedish youngster Alexander Isak is on their radar. But he won’t come cheap as in January Real Sociedad, his present club declined Arsenal’s bid for £72 million.

Isak has been fairly decent for his club and country. He starred for his nation in the Euro 2020 last year and caught European elites’ attention. For Real Sociedad, he scored 43 goals in 143 apps whereas 9 goals for Sweden at senior level.

The Telegraph claims the move will cost the Magpies at least £60 million as Sociedad are looking for ‘big, big money’. However, the club management at St. James Park also unanimously agreed to go on board with this signing.
