Inter interested in Folarin Balogun

Having given up on trying to sign Romelu Lukaku on a permanent deal from Chelsea, Inter Milan have turned their attention to Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun, according to Sky Sports.

Apparently rated at £50 million at the age of 22, Balogun is obviously a talented striker, but his future at Arsenal has come into serious question, with Gabriel Jesus, Eddie Nketiah, and now potentially even Kai Havertz to compete against for the place in the starting XI.

Balogun recently switch his international allegiance from England to USA, and he’ll be hoping to be in the squad for the 2026 World Cup which is being played across North America. He will be aware that his chances will improve significantly if he can nail down a starting spot at a top European club, and last season’s Champions League finalists seem prepared to offer him a proper chance with no Lukaku or Edin Dzeko in their ranks anymore.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta wasn’t prepared to say much when asked about Balogun’s future.

“We’ll see what happens,” he said.
