Alexander Isak has been branded as the “perfect” fit for Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp has been urged to make a move for the Real Sociedad striker.

That’s according to former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique, who believes a “big lad” like Isak could provide versatility to Klopp’s forward options.

Isak impressed during Sweden’s Euro 2020 campaign in the summer and bagged two assists before his side were knocked out by Ukraine in the round of 16.

The 22-year-old Swedish-born striker left Borussia Dortmund in 2019 to sign for current side Real Sociedad.

Isak has made 20 appearances for the La Liga club this season and scored six times and registered two assists in all competitions.

The former Dortmund and AIK man committed his long-term future to Sociedad after he inked a new deal back in July.

But Isak, who is under contract until 2026, is believed to have an £80m release clause inserted into his current deal.

Enrique has now revealed that he is an admirer of the Sweden international and “definitely” thinks Liverpool should sign him if they can land him for £50-60m.

Speaking to the Metro, the 35-year-old Spaniard said: “For me, I know January is a difficult transfer window because sometimes people buy in panic.

“But definitely I would go for one player who can play across the front three.

“I love Isak from Real Sociedad, I think they should have signed him in the summer before he signed a new deal with Sociedad.

“Now will be difficult but if they go with the right amount of money, definitely he is a player, he’s 22, a big lad, quick, strong, good one vs one, can play on the wings as well as a number nine, he defends.

“There’s a lot of options out there, don’t get me wrong, but he is one of the main options for me.

“Isak is definitely perfect for Liverpool’s profile of signings, a young player, not spending 100s of millions you’re going to spend £50-60m, definitely I would go for him.”

Isak, who has attracted interest from Arsenal and Real Madrid, has hinted that he would be open to a move to the Premier League in the future.

“I’m in a good place at the moment, I’m very happy, but one day it would be nice to play in England as well,” he told The Independent in November.

“They have six or seven of the biggest clubs in the world, it’s 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.”
