According to Sky Sports News, Arsenal have informed any interested parties of their demands for wantaway youngster Folarin Balogun.
19-year-old attacker Balogun has long been viewed as one of the most promising young talents on Arsenal’s books.
The New York native is a product of the north Londoners’ youth system, with his goalscoring exploits over recent seasons having begun to catch the eye.
As per football.london, Balogun notched a goal every 62 minutes with Arsenal’s U18s in 2018/19, a key factor in the club’s title win.
This was followed by a further 10 goals and 4 assists across 15 appearances in the Premier League 2 this season.
Gunners reveal price-tag
Such impressive form, meanwhile, has unsurprisingly seen Balogun tipped for a bright future at the Emirates.
Suggestions had even circulated that the teenage hitman was on track to be introduced to Mikel Arteta’s first-team setup next season.
This, however, all came prior to word arriving that Balogun in fact looks set to move on this summer.
Arsenal’s latest attempts to tie the English youth international down to a new contract last month saw an impasse reached.
As such, with Balogun’s current deal in north London set to expire next summer, those in charge of transfers at the Emirates are said to have come to the decision to move him on now, rather than risk losing such a talented prospect for nothing in a year’s time.
And, as outlined above, an update on the situation has today been forthcoming.
As per a report from Sky Sports News, Arsenal have informed any clubs interested in Balogun of their asking price.
The Gunners are seemingly demanding £8 million, a fee viewed as rather steep for a player who is yet to make his senior bow.
Premier League-chasing Brentford are viewed as the most likely destination as things stand, though Liverpool, along with a number of clubs in Germany, are also tipped as potential landing spots.
The Gunners’ price is considered high for a 19-year-old striker who has never played a first-team game and can leave for free next summer…🔴👀
