Folarin Balogun is linked with Inter Milan amid the valuation by Arsenal

Folarin Balogun

Arsenal player Folarin Balogun had an amazing season at Reims this year. The player was loaned out to Reims earlier this season. Furthermore he had a phenomenal season there and now Inter Milan are interested on signing the player. Folarin Balogun is one of the most prolific striker in Arsenal academy. Anybody who watched him have tipped him to have a great future in football. However the players’ success at the senior team did not come that soon. He was loaned out to different clubs to gain first team experience and develop in the game. And the player has been doing exactly the same. He is currently showing his quality in Ligue 1 and therefore obviously some of the top European clubs are keeping an eye on him. Balogun have scored more goals than Messi and Neymar this season so far in Ligue 1.

Folarin Balogun could be sold by Arsenal ahead of next season

The youngster will enter the final years of his contract with the Gunners. The player will definitely want a regular game time at Emirates. But it won’t be easy for Arsenal to grant Folarin Balogun his wishes. The Gunners have Gabriel Jesus, Eddie Nketiah and Leandro Trossard all fighting for the striker position. Furthermore even Gabriel Martinelli has played in that position this season. And that is more than enough attacking power therefore it leaves Folarin Balogun in a weird position. Therefore Arsenal could be interested selling the player. Inter Milan are keen to try and sign the player. As per reports the Italian club feels like the youngster could be an interesting investment. His price tag is said to be somewhere around £17 million and £22 million. But this could go up if he continues his fine form at Reims.

Arsenal however could ask a higher price for Folarin Balogun. That would be the right thing for them to do if they really want him gone this summer.
