Mikel Arteta has been urged to make a move for one of the Premier League's hottest strikers after missing out on Benjamin Sesko.

Manchester United legend Dwight Yorke has urged Arsenal and Mikel Arteta to break the bank for Newcastle striker Alexander Isak.

The Gunners finished just two points behind Manchester City last season for the second year in a row, and had to spend most of the season with Kai Havertz in attack due to the failings of Gabriel Jesus.

Arteta has been linked to Napoli striker Victor Osimhen and appeared very close to signing Leipzig's Benjamin Sesko before the striker signed a new contract.

According to Yorke, the Gunners need to be chasing Isak instead.

"It's strange that Benjamin Sesko decided to stay at RB Leipzig and reject the likes of Arsenal," Yorke told Best Payout Online Slots.

Arsenal need to go all out for Alexander Isak now, they need someone like him because they came up short in the striker position.

They will need to invest around £100m for Isak because that will be how much Newcastle will value him, I can't imagine it being any less."

Isak has been immense since arriving from Real Sociedad for £63m two seasons ago, and was lethal for Eddie Howe's men last season, scoring 25 goals.
