A journalist has claimed that AC Milan still hold an interest in signing Folarin Balogun from Arsenal this summer despite the links seeming to go cold.
Speaking to Give Me Sport, Daily Express journalist Ryan Taylor has suggested that Milan are not completely out of the frame for the American striker.
Balogun is a player that Milan have been linked with for some time but there has been no serious approach made by the Rossoneri this summer. He has also been linked with a whole host of Premier League teams.
The journalist has put Milan on a list of teams that also includes Crystal Palace, Inter, Monaco, Marseille and RB Leipzig who are all interested in making a move for the player who could cost around £50 million.
That sort of price tag is what could stop Milan from making any move for Balogun, given there are some cheaper options out there.
“They are looking at him, from what I understand. I’ve had conversations about Balogun’s future. There are a lot of clubs informed on his situation. Palace are one, Inter Milan, Monaco, Marseille, Leipzig, AC Milan, but I think ultimately, the price tag’s going to prove complicated for a lot of these clubs because Arsenal know he’s a really talented player,” the journalist said.
