Report: Man City want £60m-rated striker this summer

Acording to The Daily Mirror,  Manchester City are considering a summer move for Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak as he continues to shine in La Liga, following a move to Sociedad from Borussia Dortmund in 2019.

Isak, 21, only scored one goal in 13 senior Dortmund outings and that made the German club opt to offload him to Sociedad for £6million at the start of the 2019-20 season. He proved them immediately wrong the last term, scoring 16 in 44.

He has continued that form this season, netting 12 in 30 league and cup appearances. But all 12 have come in his 20 La Liga matches, and nine have come in his last six league appearances – including a hat-trick last time out. The Sweden international, Isak is one of the hottest strikers in European football right now given his age, and that has attracted City.

Rated at £60million, Dortmund have a buyback clause of £25million, but he is against a Dortmund return. But is he worth £60million? The fact he only managed three goals in his initial 14 league games before his excellent recent run of league games and failing to net in eight Europa League matches – should be a concern.

He is still very young, though, Isak is a huge talent and it must also be considered that of those 30 matches, he has only finished 90 minutes three times.
