RB Leipzig is among the clubs anticipated to pursue Folarin Balogun at the conclusion of this season, following his impressive loan spell at Reims throughout the current campaign.
The young striker made a significant impact in the French top flight, emerging as one of the leading scorers in the competition.
With a promising future ahead of him, it is uncertain whether Balogun will remain at Arsenal, as the Gunners have prioritised the addition of more experienced players to their squad.
This suggests that Arsenal might be open to the idea of selling Balogun, and Leipzig is hopeful of securing his services for an appropriate transfer fee.
According to Sports Bild, the German club has a vacancy for a striker but is unwilling to exceed a sum of 30 million euros for any potential target.
This figure may prove sufficient to entice Balogun away from Arsenal, as the Gunners are expected to consider accepting a fee in that range in order to offload the player.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Balogun has done well at Reims, but playing for Arsenal is a different ball game as we seek to win trophies.
He simply is not experienced enough to lead our attack, so we can sell him and use the money to improve our squad.

Rather keep him as a deputy to a new dominant CF. Nketiah can be sold for less money as long as we don’t pay part of his wages
His wage (Nketiah) may be a blocker on any future transfer. If he went to a mid table team, he would be on by far the most money and that would be a problem.
Because of that Balogun may be of interest to West ham. Nketiah may be out of their reach. I also wonder if Moises staying or not staying changes anything.
if they accept to give us dominic there we go
why are not talking of selling nketiah?, even when it is evident balogun has always been better? selling balogun and keeping nketiah is just crazy talk, you think nketiah will score 20 goals at reims? think again, he was once loaned at championship clubs he was benched most times and he was about that age balogun is now, at 21 balogun has showed more promise than nketiah at 23 or 24
AC Milan are also interested in Balogun.if it were up to me and it’s not, I’d move Eddie on to make room for Balo!!
I am with you 100% ballo a better player for me I don’t know about anyone else
Eddie will be hard to shift because of his wages.
The irony is, he fits the mould of a player we would be analysing for purchase, young, loads of potential, scoring goals, marketing value will go up etc. if he wasn’t already on the books. Time to move Eddie along for someone showing much more promise.
