Inter Milan, the finalists of the Champions League, have set their sights on acquiring the services of Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun, as they look to strengthen their squad for the upcoming season.
Balogun, an American forward who made a strong impression during his loan spell at Reims in Ligue 1 last season, is currently available for transfer. Although Arsenal holds value in Balogun, they consider him as a player who can be sold to generate funds for other signings.
Known for his speed, technical ability, and ambidextrous skills, Balogun has attracted attention from various clubs. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Arsenal is prepared to accept an offer in the region of £35 million for the striker’s signature.
However, the financial situation at Inter Milan raises questions about their ability to meet such a price tag. The club has been dealing with financial issues that might impact their transfer budget and ability to secure high-value signings.

As negotiations progress, it remains to be seen whether Inter Milan can meet Arsenal’s valuation and secure the signing of Folarin Balogun. The outcome of these discussions will be closely monitored by football enthusiasts eager to see where the talented young striker will continue his career.
