Great News for Liverpool: Boss confirms 'extraordinary' striker wanted by Klopp 'will leave' soon

Liverpool are currently linked with a January move for a January move for Swedish sensation Alexander Isak, and according to AIK sporting director Bjorn Wesstrom, the coveted attacker is definitely for sale.

When asked this week about the possibility of a transfer, Wesstrom told Fotbolldirekt:

"Now that he has made the breakthrough, Alexander will leave for a big transfer fee. Now or in the next transfer window he will be sold".

Some info about Isak:

* 17-year old striker. 7 goals in 20 apps for AIK. Current contract expires: 2018.

* On his role for AIK: "I am part of building the attack. You can play ball into my feet, and I can bring other players into the game".

* On his attacking role models: "I look up to Ibrahimovic, and so [fellow Eritrean] Henok Goitom, of course".

* Sep 2016: Isak's Agent, Patrick Mork, raved: "He is an exceptional and extraordinary talent. Name five of Europe's biggest clubs and there are four who want him".

* Sep 2016: Ricard Norling's assessment [AIK's head coach]: "He has a terrific talent, but the important thing is to make sure that he's doing something to bring out the talent. He works hard every day."

With so much competition from Europe's 'biggest clubs', Liverpool probably have little chance of signing Isak, who - judging by the effusive praise and transfer interest - appears to be this year's Martin Odegaard.
