Folarin Balogun is ‘set for a Serie A move’ with AC Milan and Inter battling it out for his signature, according to a report.
According to a report from The Independent, Balogun is attracting the attention of both Milanese clubs and he is ‘hugely interested by a move to Serie A’, with Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta open to selling him in order to raise funds.
Balogun played on loan at Stade de Reims last season where he netted 22 goals in 39 games. Monaco and RB Leipzig have been credited with interest but it is Inter and then Milan who are leading the race.
Inter see him as an alternative target to Chelsea’s Romelu Lukaku who will not be returning, while the Rossoneri could sign him to give a concrete alternative to Olivier Giroud and possibly secure his long-term successor.
Arsenal want £70m (€82m) from the sales of players such as Kieran Tierney and Balogun, with their main targets being Mohammed Kudus and Romeo Lavia for the midfield.
