Newcastle United striker Alexander Isak has already outlined his stance on a possible transfer away from the club this summer, with Chelsea reportedly making an enquiry for the player.

The Daily Mail reports that the Blues have been in contact with Newcastle over a potential move and there have been ‘conversations’ between the two parties with Chelsea indicating that they would like to buy the striker this summer.

If a deal is to happen, then the transfer fee is expected to eclipse the £115 million fee that Chelsea paid to Brighton for the signing of Moises Caicedo last summer. football.london understands that Arsenal are also interested in a potential summer move for Isak with the striker among those being monitored by the club as they look to strengthen their frontline.

Isak has been with Newcastle since moving from Real Sociedad in the summer of 2022. He has scored a total of 35 goals in 67 games for the club and has become a fan favourite at St James’ Park.

Earlier this month, the player himself spoke about his future amid links with a move away from the club. “I am enjoying myself at Newcastle, and I had the best season in my career — that should not be underestimated,” he told Swedish outlet Fotballskanalen . “I love everything about the club; the fans, and the city.

“It (my future) is not something I will speculate about, I have no thoughts on leaving. There has been no talk about it at the club and I have received no information that the club would have to sell me.”

Newcastle have previously openly admitted that every player has his price amid the club’s situation surrounding the Premier League’s Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSRs). The club could therefore decide to cash in but only if a huge offer from Chelsea or another club lands on the table.
