Newcastle close to agreeing club-record £58m deal with Real Sociedad for striker Alexander Isak

Alexander Isak joined Real Sociedad from Borussia Dortmund three years ago and has scored 44 goals in 132 appearances; striker has also scored nine goals in 37 games for Sweden; Isak scored for Spanish side in 4-1 defeat to Barcelona in La Liga last weekend


Isak is yet to finalise personal terms with Eddie Howe's side but no problems are expected ahead of what would be a club-record deal for Newcastle, eclipsing the £40m they paid Hoffenheim for Joelinton in 2019 and Lyon for Bruno Guimaraes in January.

Dan Ashworth, Newcastle's sporting director, and Steve Nickson, the club's head of recruitment, had been in Spain to work on a deal that has moved at pace.

 Alexander Isak is travelling to Newcastle and will undergo a medical and finalise paperwork later today ahead of his £58m move from Real Sociedad.

The Sweden international is set to smash Newcastle’s current £40m transfer record.


The deal would represent a club record for Newcastle, eclipsing the £40m they paid Hoffenheim for Joelinton in 2019 and Lyon for Bruno Guimaraes in January.


Isak has been at Real Sociedad since the summer of 2019, when he arrived from Borussia Dortmund, and has scored 44 goals in 132 appearances - including one in the 4-1 La Liga defeat to Barcelona on Sunday.

The 22-year-old also has nine goals in 37 caps for Sweden, the first of which came when he was just 17 and made him his country's youngest goalscorer.
