Ajax forward Brian Brobbey has named Arsenal as one of his dream clubs as speculation continues over his future.

The 22-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Dutch giants this summer, having only rejoined Ajax two years ago after a failed transfer to RB Leipzig.

Now back in the shop window once more, the Dutchman is likely to command a sizeable fee on the back of a season during which he scored 22 goals in all competitions despite the struggles of his side.

Brobbey's best years could be spent in the Netherlands due to his contract expiring in 2027, though the player's latest comments suggest he is not planning to stick around in Amsterdam for the foreseeable.

Asked to name his dream destinations by HELDEN Magazine, he responded: "Real Madrid, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham, those are nice clubs. But, if I stay at Ajax, that is certainly not a punishment.”

Arsenal could well target a move for the youngster should they fail in their efforts to recruit Newcastle United striker, Alexander Isak.

Isak will cost far more than Brobbey in terms of a transfer sum and negotiations with Newcastle would likely prove more troublesome, too, due to buying from a Premier League rival.

The Magpies have continued to stress they have no plans to offload their Swedish star this summer despite needing to comply with Profit and Sustainability rules, which could lead to several clubs being forced to cash in on their prized asses to balance the books.

Offering an update on his future, Isak recently told Swedish outlet Fotbollskanlen: "I’m enjoying myself very, very much in Newcastle.

"I just had the best season of my career. That should not be underestimated. I love everything really about the club, the fans, the city. I actually have no thoughts of a move or anything like that. I enjoy myself fantastically well and am very happy with my life."
