Inter Milan, the finalists of the Champions League, have expressed their interest in acquiring the services of Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun as they aim to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season. Balogun, a promising American forward who impressed during his loan spell at Reims in Ligue 1 last season, is currently on the transfer market. While Arsenal values Balogun, they view him as a player who can be sold to generate funds for other signings, signaling their willingness to consider offers.
Renowned for his speed, technical prowess, and ambidextrous skills, Balogun has attracted attention from several clubs. His market value, according to Transfermarkt.com, stands at 25 million euros.
Reports from Gazzetta dello Sport suggest that Arsenal could accept an offer in the region of £35 million for the striker’s signature.
However, Inter Milan’s financial situation casts doubt on their ability to meet such a substantial price tag. The club has been grappling with financial challenges that may impact their transfer budget and their capacity to secure high-value signings.
