A net from 12 yards would have hit Isak in consecutive league games as well.

Isak scored the winner against Espanyol the week before.

But before that, his last LaLiga goal came on December 18, 2021.

Instead, Isak was cautioned in advance for a feint to fool the keeper.

A penalty shootout section on the FA website clearly explains the situation.

It states: “Faking in advance to confuse a penalty kick in order to confuse the opponent is allowed in football.

“However, a feint to kick the ball after the player has completed his run-up will be considered a violation of Rule 14 and unsportsmanlike conduct for which the player must be cautioned.”

Luckily for Isak, his hard-fought penalty didn’t cost his team any points.

Ex-Crystal Palace striker Alexander Sørloth and defender Robin Le Normand scored before half-time to win the game for Sociedad and salvage Arsenal’s transfer target.

Isak did not have a successful season in front of goal despite being linked with a big move from the Spanish club.

The 22-year-old has scored NINE goals in all competitions this season, including FIVE in La Liga.

Last season, Isak scored 17 times in LaLiga alone.

However, Isak’s form has not deterred Arsenal as the Gunners have reportedly contacted Isak’s entourage about a summer transfer.

The Gunners are desperate for forward reinforcements after terminating Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s contract last month.

They also missed out on the signing of Dusan Vlahovic to Juventus, while Eddie Nketiah and Alexandre Lacazette both become free agents in June.

Isak could cost a staggering £76million.
