Alexander Isak has signed a contract extension with Real Sociedad, serving a blow to all suitors, including London side Arsenal.
The Gunners have been credited with an interest in the Swedish rising star, who impressed for Sweden in the EURO 2020 tournament.

And further reports indicate the 21-year-old's release clause is now set at £77.5million, from the £60million in his earlier contract.
Mikel Arteta was said to be keen on adding a new forward, with the futures of Alexander Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah in question.
The two players' contracts run out in 2022, and one could be allowed to leave.
Isak was one of the standout performers for Sociedad last season, smashing 17 goals in 34 La Liga games.
