The future of Arsenal youngster Folarin Balogun remains up in the air and with Inter Milan. It continues to be mentioned in every conversation regarding the clubs.
The Italian giants are thought to be keen on signing Balogun. This is as they look for a marquee signing in attack this summer. They want him as a replacement for Lukaku
So far, Arsenal are sticking to their guns and demanding more than £40m. This is for the young forward. And while Inter haven’t met that price tag just yet. They could be about to make moves to do so.
Gazetta dello Sport has reported how Balogun is one of the final two options Inter.
Balogun to Inter Milan is a win-win for both the parties
If the Italian side are looking to sell a player they paid £25m for. That is just over a year ago then that suggests they are more than ready to have a real go at getting Folarin Balogun.
Arsenal known they’ll need to make a decision on the young star very soon. If he sits on the bench all season. Then his value will suddenly dip and the Gunners might be seeking a loan move again for the youngster.
If Inter can come up with the £40m plus needed. Then it’s hard to see Arsenal turning the bid down.
Interestingly, Sky Sports have jumped on the story. They added in that the Milan club are looking to sell forward Joaquin Correa. This is inorder to fund the move. Inter paid £25m for Correa just last year. But are open to selling him to raise funds to sign Balogun.
