Arsenal youngster Florian Balogun move to French club Marseille shouldn’t be ruled out, claims journalist Jonathan Johnson.

Balogun has been in the headlines for number of reasons over last few weeks. He scored his first goal for USA in 2:0 win over Canada, last night.

The USMNT international has admitted that he wants move out of the Emirates, this summer. Balogun wants to go out on loan or a permanent exit from Arsenal.

According to Journalist Jonathan Johnson, Marseille wants Balogun on a loan move this summer. Writing in his latest column on CaughtOffSide, he said:-

“There’s been a lot of interest and a lot of business done between Arsenal and Marseille in recent times, with OM showing a particular interest in Folarin Balogun and his future this summer. It’s difficult for Marseille to make a move for him at this moment in time, however, as they don’t have a new coach in place yet.

“Still, Marseille seem to have a particularly good relationship with Arsenal, as we saw with the loan deal for Nuno Tavares last summer, which itself followed the William Saliba loan and the Matteo Guendouzi loan that was turned permanent.

“In terms of Tavares’ future, I’m not sure Marseille saw enough from him to want to make that move permanent, but I think that’s a relationship those two clubs will want to continue, so it could have implications for Balogun, or maybe someone else.”

Arsenal find themselves in a tricky situation. On one hand, they’ll need a backup striker for Gabriel Jesus.

But on the other hand, Balogun is not good enough to get them what they want. Hence, Gunners need to let him go and on a loan move to flourish elsewhere.
