Chelsea will not pay what Arsenal wants for Balogun

Chelsea has now entered the fray as the latest club to express interest in securing the signature of Folarin Balogun, as Arsenal aims to find a new home for the American striker.

Following a productive loan spell at Reims where he emerged as a key contributor with double-digit goals, Balogun returned to Arsenal for the current transfer window.

Several clubs, including Inter Milan and AS Monaco, have previously shown interest in acquiring him. The latest addition to this list is Chelsea, a club that has been actively searching for a new striker throughout the transfer window.

With a reported asking price of £50 million from Arsenal to secure Balogun’s services, Chelsea appears hesitant to meet this valuation, reports 90mins. Despite recent lavish spending on new players, Chelsea reportedly does not deem Balogun’s potential worth the stated price.

Just Arsenal Opinion

£50m is a huge fee to pay for a player who has not proven himself in England and we can understand why Chelsea will not pay up.

Hopefully, he gets a suitor that will meet our asking price or come close to doing so.

  1. Mudrick scored 12 goals in Ukraine league which is not up to the standard of France league yet they paid £100m, we paid £65m for havertz who is not worth 30, so if they really need him there should pay the 50.

  2. “£50m is a huge fee to pay for a player who’s not proven himself in the Premier league”….

    Fernandez …£100+m
    Mudryk …… £70+m
    Nkunku ….£50+m

    Never been an issue for them before.

    1. Exactly- they spray money on players without PL experience but why Martin say he understand them
      They MUST pay or get lost

  3. You don’t sell any player to a club in the same league. You don’t want him against you. Don’t do the same mistake as Pep did last season, it almost cost MC the title. Sell the kid abroad – or give him the chance to prove himself. Don’t be fools.

  4. Nothing to see here.

    They have the ability to pay £70 million which Arsenal is allegedly demanding from rivals.

    If they don’t want to, there are other fish in the sea.

  5. My take is, Balogun hasn’t had a chance to prove himself in the EPL. He’s young but still proved himself in France. Havertz had 3 years with Chelsea and failed dismally having left his shine in Germany.
    This is a case of £50 mil of potential vs £65 mil of proven failure.
    £50 mil can’t be too much for Chelsea, when they sold us £65 mil of proven incapacity.

  6. You can moan all you like about Chelsea, but the fact is we will not get 50m from any Club for Balogun.As for the continual sniping at Havertz, it’s like listening to a flock of sheep,it becomes tiresome.

  7. Chelsea don’t want to pay our asking price because they know that we don’t sell our players for good price.

    If Balogun was a Brighton player, he will cost more than that, and clubs will be willing to pay.
