Folarin Balogun is arguably the hottest Arsenal striker in Europe now and he isn’t even playing for the Premier League leaders.
Balogun left the Emirates to move to Reims on loan in the summer, a move that is arguably the best transfer decision made by the Gunners in a long time.
The Englishman has been fearless in France and has already hit double figures in goals for the little-known Ligue 1 side.
As he continues to impress, speculation about his future is mounting and it remains unclear if he will stay or leave the Gunners permanently at the end of the campaign.
One of his many suitors is Inter Milan and the Italians seem serious about their interest in the New York-born youngster.
Inter Live reveals even if the San Siro side wants to add him to their squad, they face paying at least 40m euros for his signature.
Just Arsenal Opinion
In an ideal world, keeping Balogun and making him our first-choice striker would be the smartest thing for us to do.
However, the Englishman will struggle to play ahead of Gabriel Jesus at the Emirates and will not want a bench role.
Because of this possibility, it is almost sure that Balogun will leave the Emirates at the end of this campaign.

Even Jesus isn’t guaranteed a place, no one is. I think Balogun will come back and be playing for us next season, regularly in the first team or on the bench, who knows, but I expect him to remain an Arsenal player.
The are definitely starters…
And what about Saka, surely he’s a starter ?
I doubt very much that Arsenal will be keen to sell Balogun. It would make no sense, given his massive improvement.
It won’t happen IMO!
One of the main reasons young players are sent on loan is for them to get game time to aid their development.. As such when they do hit their stride and become worthy challengers for spots in the team its more logical to give them their chance in the squad.. Nobody should be garunteed a starting berth in the team as it fosters laziness.. Competition for places is crucial to create and maintain a competitive edge.. Folarin shud be given his chance to impress next season
It’s a good time to cash in balogun. He is shining and I can guarantee you that he can’t do what he is doing there at arsenal so sell him now while he is hot
