Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak has talked up the prospect of playing in England amid interest from Arsenal.

The Gunners see the Swede as an alternative to Fiorentina centre-forward ahead of next week's transfer deadline.

Isak has told the Independent: "I am in a good place at the moment, I am very happy, but one day it would be nice to play in England as well.

"They have six or seven of the biggest clubs in the world, it is a very high level, and of course one day it would be an alternative. Every player wants to be the best version of themselves and reach the highest possible level.

"I have expectations for myself that I'm trying to fulfil, so we'll see where the journey takes me in future."

Isak has also revealed growing up following Arsenal great Thierry Henry.

He told Min Stora Dag: "I have a lot of football players who I have looked up to & have taken a lot from, but if I have to name one, I would say Thierry Henry, who I have really liked all the time & where I see many qualities that I have tried to follow."
