Alexander Isak scored a wonderful goal for Sweden this weekend. It has some Liverpool fans who are desperate for their arrival.
Alexander Isak is a special player. He is massive, but somehow moves across the field as a player half his size. He will score all kinds of goals as well, from fox-in-the-box bets to 25-yard strikes.
And we got a wonderful example of that later this weekend when Isak scored for Sweden against Kosovo. The 22-year-old showed everything.
Isak drifted over to the left flank after Sweden had a corner cleared. He got a pass with two defenders around him but a quick nutmeg got him out of trouble.
The Swede then kept a defender away before he wound it into the upper corner from outside the box, at the same time as it fell over. It was a miraculous goal and Isak made it look pretty routine.
We have been big fans of Isak for a while now and this was a moment that showed his enormous potential. He really feels like an ideal signing for a team like Liverpool that needs an out-and-out center-forward.
And Liverpool are probably interested. News from Gipuzkoa reported during the summer that the Reds looked at Isak – but it seems that Real Sociedad are eager to stick with the Swede.
Still, Isak’s goal has some Liverpool fans eager for the Reds to push for this. The 22-year-old – who scored 17 times in La Liga last season – is a sign they should not miss.
Fans on Isak after Sweden’s goal
Isak has not found his feet for Sociedad yet this season – but the injury has not helped – but he has scored a couple of wonderful goals for Sweden in recent months.
So the magic is still there and we are sure that it is only a matter of time before he scores consistent goals in Spain again. And if it happens before the end of the season, we will hit the Isaac drum hard.
There is a very special talent here and a Liverpool should have both eyes on.
