Alexander Isak insists he is happy at Newcastle United and is not looking to leave the club this summer as he continues to be linked with a move to Arsenal. The 24-year-old moved to St James' Park for a club-record fee of £63m in August 2022 and has since scored 37 goals in 65 games for the Magpies, who he helped fire back into the Champions League for the first time since 2004.

Earlier this year, Newcastle United CEO Darren Eales admitted that the club could be forced to sell some of their biggest names to comply with the Premier League's Financial Fair Play Rules, and, as a result, the futures of Isak and Bruno Guimaraes have been speculated.

However, Isak has insisted he has not thought about leaving St James' Park this summer nor had any indication that the club would be willing to sell him to rumoured suitors Arsenal or Barcelona.

"I’m really, really happy at Newcastle," Isak told Fotbollskanale. "I had the 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.

“It’s not something I speculate about. Within the team or the club, there has been no talk or drama around it. I have not received any information from the club that they would have to sell me."

The forward, who finished third in the race for the Premier League Golden Boot with 21 goals, also admitted he was pleased with his form in the closing months of the campaign as Newcastle secured a seventh-place finish.

“It’s been good, especially the second part of the season," added Isak. "I had some hiccups and injuries in the first part. It was a bit difficult to find the flow, but in the last few months, I’ve been playing regularly and getting continuity. It has shown in the performances too."
