Some Arsenal supporters are calling on the club to sign Real Sociedad forward Alexander Isak instead of Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
According to Telegraph, Everton center-forward is being watched by the Gunners ahead of a possible move this summer.
Mikel Arteta is considering moving to Calvert-Lewin as he seeks to “reorganize his attack line”, with Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah still linked with an exit from Emirates Stadium.
The 24-year-old England international has had a great season for both club and country, scoring 25 goals throughout the 2020/21 campaign.
Despite this, some Gunners supporters believe their club should look to Isak.
The Swedish forward has been very impressive for his country at Euro, helping the team reach the round of 16, where they face Ukraine next week.
Isak is yet to score in the international tournament, but his complete game has won him many admirers – Chelsea and Real Madrid also being interested in a summer transfer.
According to The sun, Everton will accept around £ 50million for Calvert-Lewin, while Isak is expected to cost around £ 60million, with a release clause in his contract with Real Sociedad.
Some Arsenal supporters believe the north London club should pay the extra £ 10million to get Isak signed, rather than Calvert-Lewin.
Real Madrid have also been credited with a surprise decision for Calvert-Lewin as Carlo Ancelotti seeks to reunite with his former striker.
Ancelotti has praised the Toffees forward when speaking about him in the past. The former Everton boss hailed Calvert-Lewin’s “cold” finish after a 1-0 win over West Ham United in April this year.
He said: “Calvert-Lewin – and also Richarlison – did a fantastic job for the team. I asked them to play vertically and attack from the back. They did that a lot. ‘he scored today is a better striker.
The summer window is officially open, and it is going to be difficult to follow the comings and goings in and out of the Emirates.

“It’s a goal where the forward prepares his movement and moves at the right time with a lot of speed and then he got cold in front of the keeper. He hasn’t scored a lot of goals like that.
“He’s scored most of his goals from crosses or with a touch in the box. It’s the goal of one of the best forwards.”
