Reports claimed that Real Madrid are eyeing a move for Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak.
It is believed that Los Blancos are weighing up a move to acquire the services of the Swedish marksman this summer.
The 22-year-old has scored some crucial goals for the Spanish club this season and has drawn attention with his exploits as the focal point of their attack. Isak has appeared in 25 matches for Real Sociedad this season, scoring eight goals and assisting on two occasions.
The Solna native has established himself as a reliable player in La Liga, averaging 2.1 shots, 0.4 critical passes, and 1.4 dribbles per 90 minutes. However, after completing 72.4 percent of his attempted passes in the Spanish top division, he has to concentrate on improving his ball distribution.
Real Madrid are still hunting for a long-term replacement for Karim Benzema after Luka Jovic and Mariano Diaz failed to establish themselves as regular starts under Carlo Ancelotti recently.
If Isak maintains his current form with Sociedad, Los Blancos would be wise to sign him since he possesses all of the qualities required to be a quality player at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Overall, Isak will be a viable option for Ancelotti to consider at the conclusion of the season if Real Madrid fail to secure any of their key targets.
