Praise for Newcastle United striker Alexander Isak from Arsenal centre-back William Saliba
Saliba said about Isak, transcribed by TBR: “I would probably say Haaland and then Rashford second and then Isak.”
“I’ve never played him but I’ve seen him and he’s that good too.
“Isak, I’ve never played him, but what I saw was really good.”
We believe Alexander Isak is one of the best young strikers out there and a very important player for Newcastle United.
Isak struggled with injuries last season but when he was fit and playing he was very impressive.
The 23-year-old joined Newcastle from Real Sociedad in the summer of 2022.
The forward made 17 starts and five substitutes in the Premier League for the Magpies last season.
Isak scored 10 goals and provided one assist in those games.
The youngster has scored twice in four Premier League games for Eddie Howe’s side this season.
Isak can play as a single player in attack or with another forward.
The Sweden international can also play on the flank.
We believe Isak is a gem of a footballer.
And he’s only 23.
Isak will only get better in the coming weeks.
