Arsenal striker Florian Balogun is reportedly attracting interest from Inter Milan. Hence, the Gunners are going to make a decision about the future of the young striker the next summer.
At the moment, he is on loan with Reims in the Ligue 1. Hence, with Arteta looking to sign an established striker in January, Balogun will surely consider leaving the club permanently.
ARSENAL MUST TAKE A DECISION ON THE FUTURE OF FLORIAN BALOGUN IN THE NEXT SUMMER
According to reports, Arsenal will have to make a decision on the future of Florian Balogun in the next summer transfer window. He is currently on loan with Ligue 1 side Reims this season. The young England striker has scored fewer goals than only Messi and Mbappe. Hence, a number of top European clubs are monitoring his situation. Therefore, the agent of the striker wants clarity from the Gunners regarding his client’s long-term future at the club.
The report also claims that Arsenal are looking to sign a striker in the January transfer window. Hence, this new potential striker will push Florian Balogun more down the pecking order in next summer after his loan spell ends. Hence, Mikel Arteta will have to make a decision on the striker’s future in the next summer transfer window. A number of reports also claimed that they would recall him after the injury to Gabriel Jesus. However, Mikel Arteta does not want to disrupt his development on loan this season.
AC MILAN AND INTER MILAN ARE ALSO MONITORING HIS SITUATION
According to reports, AC Milan and Inter Milan are also monitoring the situation. The report also claims that the deal will cost them around 40-50 million. Florian Balogun was earlier valued at around 10-15 million at the start of this season. However, due to his brilliant form, the striker’s value has jumped high. Hence, it looks like this is the best time for Arsenal to consider selling him. A number of other reports also claim that Mikel Arteta will not immediately sell him.
The Spanish manager will evaluate him before the start of the next season. Hence, then a decision will be made by Mikel Arteta to keep him or sell him. There are also reports suggesting that Arsenal will try to loan him out again next season. It looks like they are following the same loan plan as William Saliba. Hence, the situation of Florian Balogun is the open situation. At the moment, the Gunners are reportedly looking to sign Memphis Depay or Dusan Vlahovic in the January transfer window.
However, in recent days, the striker links reports have disappeared. This is because, at the moment, Arsenal are prioritizing the signing of Mykhaylo Mudryk in January. It is also because of the brilliant form of Eddie Nketiah and the ability of Gabriel Martinelli to play as a striker. Hence, there is a chance that Florian Balogun has a future with the club.
