Report – AC Milan considering a move for impressive Arsenal loanee

Folarin Balogun is arguably Arsenal’s most in-form striker this season, although he is away from the club on loan at Reims.

The youngster has hit double figures in the number of goals scored in Ligue 1 this season and the decision to send him there is fully justified.

The Gunners are delighted to see him make serious progress and will be happy to have him back at the end of this season, but clubs are beginning to circle the youngster.

The French top flight is one of the top five European leagues, so it is hard not to take Balogun’s exploits seriously and a new report reveals a top Italian club wants to sign him.

A report on Calciomercato reveals AC Milan is now monitoring him and they could move to add him to their squad as Divock Origi struggles with injury and the likes of Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are getting on in years.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Balogun has proven he is a top talent in Ligue 1 this season and we now have to take him seriously as he develops well in France.

The striker has shown us he is a good player, but we probably need to allow him to remain there for another season to complete his development.

  1. I believe that the club have always taken him seriously and fully expect him to be part of the first team squad next season.
    Will he be ready to be a part of the process to defend our PL title and our search for CL glory… that is the question?

    1. That’s impressive, lol well let’s wait and see the PL tittle first. Folarin is a young prospect, I’ve seen him in the Championship games.
      I bet he’ll be thrown in the mix alongside Saka and the likes.

    1. Albeit in a lower league… Yet only 3 goals behind Mbappe who has the support of Neymar, Messi and the PSG super squad around him.. it only enhances how well Folarin is doing.

  2. He has come through the academy and I agree with you that Arsenal should extend his loan for more first team experience, not least because AC Milan are unlikely to value him anywhere near his future potential.

  3. Another loan next campaign should get him ready to join the squad. He is progressing really well.

  4. If another striker is bought this month then how would he fit in next season?

    We would have the new guy, Jesus, Nketiah… even if Eddie were sold, would we really have room for 3 strikers one of whom would be unlikely to see many minutes on the field (so how long would he stay happy)?
