Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun (22) is prioritising a move to Iner Milan amidst attempts from West Ham United, AS Monaco and RC Lens to agree provisional terms with the USMNT forward, according to sources contacted by Get French Football News.
As reported by The Athletic earlier on Monday, AS Monaco have submitted a bid for Balogun. Get French Football News can confirm the rejection of this opening offer, which falls significantly short of Arsenal’s valuation of €50m plus bonuses. However, talks between the two clubs haven’t been severed, and Monaco continue to attempt to agree provisional terms with the player himself.
Monaco aren’t the only club attempting to agree terms with Balogun. Lens, West Ham and Inter Milan are also seeking to reach a provisional agreement with the Arsenal forward. Get French Football News understands that Balogun favours a move to Inter Milan, although the Serie A side may struggle to pull off the deal due to the financial demands being imposed by Arsenal.
