As well as this, London rivals Chelsea have been credited with holding an interest in the 21-year-old forward. El Gol Digital are reporting that the Blues could be set to offer around €60million for the Sociedad star.

The striker impressed in his country’s goalless draw with Spain on the opening match day and continued his form in the 1-0 win against Slovakia on Friday afternoon.

Following Sweden’s first victory, Richards heaped praise on the reported Arsenal and Chelsea target.

“He can do it in the Premier League. He’s been linked with Arsenal as well, so who knows – they might have found a gem there,” the former Manchester City defender said on BBC One.

Rio Ferdinand recently shared a similar view to Richards, where he offered his honest verdict on his performance against Spain earlier in the week.

“This kid, Isak, he was a problem today for the defenders in the Spain team,” the former Manchester United centre-back said on BBC’s coverage of the draw on Monday.

“He was a nuisance. He showed today why he’s got Young Player of the Year in La Liga. He was the outlet.

“We were surprised, really, when he got brought off – he must be thinking about the coming games or something like that.”
