PSG Joins Balogun Transfer Race

0 123

Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly interested in signing Arsenal youngster Folarin Balogun after a successful loan spell in France this season.


The former Middlesbrough loanee has been one of Ligue 1’s sharpest shooters this term, netting 18 league goals in 32 appearances for a Reims side who currently sit 11th in the table.



The England youth international has recently expressed his desire to return to the Emirates next term as first-choice striker, however with the likes of Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah in the squad, the 21-year-old could need to move elsewhere to find regular game time.


According to Football London, PSG are one of the teams across Europe considering a move for Balogun, with the Parisians’ Kylian Mbappe one of only three players ahead of the Reims attacker in the Ligue 1 scoring charts.


The report adds that Mikel Arteta’s Gunners are set for crunch talks with the player over his long-term future – discussions which could lead to him playing his football away from North London once again next term.


Arsenal welcome rivals Chelsea to the Emirates on Tuesday night knowing a victory would see them regain their spot at the top of the Premier League standings – if only for two days.
