• Newcastle Complete Deal For Alexander Isak
  • Alexander Isak’s Style
  • How Will He Settle Into The Premier League

Newcastle have completed the signing of Alexander Isak from Real Sociedad. The deal was wrapped up quickly, but it took months of proper planning from the new owners at Newcastle United. The deal was done for a figure around £63M. In the current market, that looks like a steal for a 22-year-old striker with so much potential.

Isak is not your typical young striker, he knows what it means to lead an attack at a young age already. He has made over 150 professional appearances. In 132 appearances for Sociedad, he scored 44 goals, and also registered 8 assists. While the modern game is all about numbers for strikers and forwards, Isak brings so much more to Newcastle.


The Premier League is the toughest in the world. It will take a lot for a young striker to settle in, but Alexander Isak has the tools to do well. He’ll be playing in a league where attackers are not afforded much time on the ball, but that plays to all of his strengths. A young, tall, and strong striker who is also a nimble dribbler, Isak has it all. His pace and quick feet will help Newcastle when they face teams defending deep. His height is well suited to the league. Although his physicality and strength will be tested in England, Isak will grow into it.

The Swede is the Newcastle’s new record signing, and he sits well into the profile, and project Newcastle are currently building. At just 22, his best years are surely ahead of him.

He fits right into Eddie Howe’s plan perfectly. The English manager is a progressive and attacking manager who loves pacey forwards. As evident against Manchester City last week, Howe is building the foundations on which the new Newcastle on-pitch brand will be built. The Magpies have the money, but they’re building slowly and with purpose. Signings players like Alexander Isak and Sven Botman clearly shows the goals and aspirations of the new owners and their project.
