Borussia Dortmund’s exciting striker Alexander Isak is a target for Chelsea.
Isak is on loan in the Eredivisie at Willem II and has netted eleven goals in eleven matches for the Dutch club and ten of those goals have come in the 19-year-old’s last six matches.
Being Swedish, the forward being hailed as the next Zlatan Ibrahimovic and has already made three appearances for his country. The Mirror claims the Blues sent scouts to watch Isak in action in his club’s last outing against Ajax.
The Chelsea target scored in that match and is continuing to impress on loan from BVB. The teenager signed for the German club back in January 2017 in a reported £14 million deal, as Dortmund beat Real Madrid to his services.
Real Madrid continue to monitor Isak’s grow and would likely challenge Chelsea if they bid for the Swede, whose long frame earned him not only comparisons with Zlatan Ibrahimovic but also the nickname ‘Giraffe’.
With speculation swirling Isak was not happy with being loaned out to Willem II, the striker admitted he would consider his options at the end of the current season. He said: ‘I want to play for a really big club in a big league. I will see about my near future at the end of this season.’
The Blues are on the hunt for a young striker capable of developing into a top talent and Chelsea may feel they are in a good position to sign the forward having successfully negotiated with Dortmund over the signing of Christian Pulisic.
