Some Arsenal fans reacted to the performance of Alexander Isak during Sweden’s goalless draw against Spain at Euro 2020.
Despite this, they came up with a hard-fought point, partly due to Spain’s poor finishing in front of goal.
Alvaro Morata, Gerard Moreno and Pablo Sarabia missed out on clear-cut scoring chances for the hosts.
Meanwhile, Isak caught the eye of many Gunners fans with his impressive impact on the other end.
He nearly opened the scoring for Sweden before the break, but his shot which deflected off Marcos Llorente hit the post.
At the hour mark, he showed sublime skill to outsmart three defenders before delivering a peach of a cross for Marcus Berg at the far post.
The 34-year-old had a simple tap-in, but ended up missing the target completely, much to his own disappointment.
Some Gunners supporters were impressed with Isak’s showing for Sweden, and here are a few reactions on Twitter.
Alexander Isak has to be Arsenal’s top centre forward target. Real deal this guy! #EURO2020

I tell you who I wouldn’t mind Arsenal signing as a striker, this Swedish striker Alexander Isak. Done well in La Liga this season, all the strengths you need as a lone striker, quick, strong, tall, looks very good technically and he’s young as well.

The Gunners are not actively looking for another striker, but the situation could change with the possible exit of Alexandre Lacazette or Eddie Nketiah.
Technical director Edu Gaspar is a huge admirer of Isak, and it was recently reported that the 21-year-old is a potential future target for the club.
Real Sociedad could accept a lesser fee than his €70 million release clause, but Borussia Dortmund have the advantage in the player’s pursuit.
The German outfit have a €30m buy-back clause for the striker, and they could purchase him before sanctioning his sale for a profit.
Isak has the qualities to succeed in the Premier League with his pace, quick feet and physical presence in and around the box.
