Three other clubs tipped to make Alexander Isak move after Chelsea link to Newcastle United star

Newcastle United are expected to be active in the summer transfer market and have already secured the arrival of Bournemouth defender Lloyd Kelly on a free transfer.

But while fans are keen to see the Magpies bring in some new arrivals, arguably the most important pieces of business they can do this summer is to keep hold of star men Bruno Guimaraes and Alexander Isak.

The expiration of Bruno's £100million release clause has come as a huge relief to the Toon Army, amid interest from Premier League champions Man City, but interest in Isak is showing no signs of slowing down.

Chelsea reportedly made an enquiry about the 24-year-old's availability this summer after the Sweden international scored 25 goals for Newcastle in all competitions last season.

They are not the only club interested in the former Real Sociedad and Borussia Dortmund star, though, and that has been reflected in the bookmakers' odds.

According to Bet Victor, it is Arsenal who are the favourites to tempt Isak away from St James' Park this summer, offering odds of 5/1 for him to make the move to North London.

Chelsea are joint second favourites in the betting, alongside Tottenham Hotspur, with both clubs priced at 8/1 for Isak to join them. Liverpool are priced at 10/1 to sign Isak as new manager Arne Slot looks to move the club on from the Jurgen Klopp era.

You can back Isak to join any Spanish club, Italian club, German club or French club at 16/1 individually, while Manchester United, who are battling with Newcastle to bring in Dan Ashworth as their new sporting director, are priced at 20/1 to make a move for Isak.

Newcastle are determined to keep Isak, who they signed for £63million two years ago, to lead their attack again this season with Callum Wilson expected to leave the North East this summer.
