Arsenal star “very keen” on moving to Europe, with new offer “expected” later this week

The Ligue 1 club Monaco is preparing a new offer for Arsenal forward Folarin Balogun, who is reportedly “very keen” on moving there this summer.

Balogun made an impression while playing on loan for Reims last season, and it appears that the forward is eager to return to France this summer.

In his most productive season to date, the 22-year-old scored 21 league goals last year.

A permanent departure seems more than likely because he has already stated that he doesn’t want to play on loan for another season.

Although Balogun is highly regarded by Arsenal, no other teams have yet agreed to match their £50 million asking price.

Chelsea and Monaco are both interested in the Arsenal player, but Monaco is reportedly preparing a new offer.

Balogun is “very keen” to move to Monaco, and the French club is “expected” to make a new offer “in excess of €40 million” this week, according to Matt Spiro.

These assertions have been supported by Fabrizio Romano, a transfer expert who anticipates Monaco will make another offer soon.

Romano told Caught Offside that Folarin Balogun “could leave, but I think he has now been linked with all the top European clubs.”.

“Some fans have questioned me about the rumors about Chelsea and Tottenham, but the truth is that, yes, he’s really appreciated by a number of clubs, but the strongest interest up to this point has been from AS Monaco, and they remain interested; I anticipate a new offer for Balogun soon. “.

Romano isn’t aware of any current direct negotiations between Chelsea and Arsenal, despite the fact that the Arsenal forward is still a target for Chelsea.

“Let’s see if English clubs will try too, but right now it’s just about being informed rather than any actual negotiations,” Romano continued.

“The links with Chelsea come from the fact that Romeo Lavia and Balogun have the same agent, but I’m not aware of any direct contacts between Chelsea and Arsenal, no bids, just regular contacts between agents—not a legitimate negotiation. “.

Balogun’s contract with Arsenal expires in 2025, so the 22-year-old will want to decide on his future as soon as possible.
