Balogun eyeing summer Arsenal exit

Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun is reportedly attracting interest from five European clubs ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 21-year-old joined Reims on a season-long loan last summer and he has been brilliant for them with 19 goals in all competitions.

Balogun will return to the Gunners at the end of the campaign but The Athletic claim that he could then pursue a permanent transfer.

The striker has the ambition to play for the Gunners but he does not want to act as a back-up to Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah.

The youngster prefers to continue as a first-choice striker and this could pave the way for his permanent move away from north London.

Balogun, who has another two years left on his contract, is on the radar of AC Milan, Inter Milan, Marseille, Monaco and RB Leipzig.

Arsenal could be tempted to sanction his sale with a buy-back inserted. In that way, they can retain his services in the long run.
