This one came out of nowhere.
The 22-year-old Swede burst on the scene after his heroics during the Euros last summer, where he notched a tournament top 6 successful dribbles against Slovakia. Real Sociedad immediately extended his contract that July, just before the player was linked to moves to Real Madrid and Arsenal.
But now it appears the Spanish club is ready to cash in on the 6-foot-3 agile striker.
Panic buy or a good deal for Newcastle?
Isak is undoubtedly an emerging talent with dazzling dribbling and lethal scoring abilities.
But €70M seems a hefty price for a streaky player who scored just 10 goals last season. Barcelona acquired Lewandowski and Kounde for under €65m. No wonder Sociedad is ready to do a deal, taking 10% for any future sale of the Swede.
