Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun is training away from the main group ahead of his potential departure this summer.

The 22-year-old had a promising loan stint with Reims in the French top-flight last season. He netted 22 goals while providing three assists.

Despite this, manager Mikel Arteta does not fancy him as the first-choice striker. He is behind Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah in the pecking order.

He is expected to be sold in the coming weeks, and there are no surprises that he is currently training away from the main squad in the United States.

Inter Milan are currently interested in signing the Gunners graduate, but they are reluctant to pay more than £34 million for his services.

Arsenal, on the other hand, are looking for close to £50m for the striker, and negotiations are likely to be held between the clubs very soon.

Aside from Balogun, Nicolas Pepe, Rob Holding, Cedric Soares and Nuno Tavaes are expected to head for the exit door in the near future.
