Four clubs have expressed an interest in a January loan move for Folarin Balogun, according to another report on the striker.
Football.London report that Middlesbrough, Millwall, Swansea City, and Saint-Etienne have all expressed an interest in a January loan move for Folarin Balogun.
The player is reportedly keen to prove himself on loan, and Arsenal have received a number of enquiries for him.
This follows a similar report from The S*n, which also suggested that Saint-Etienne, Middlesbrough, and Swansea City are interested in Balogun.
The only difference is that whilst Football.London wrote that Millwall are after the striker, The S*n claimed AFC Bournemouth are chasing him.
There’s no guarantee Balogun will go out on loan in January at all, but it seems there are plenty after him if he does.
You’d think that would be the best thing for him, considering how dominant he’s been with the Arsenal u23’s this season.
The striker has 13 goals in just 10 games in the Premier League 2 this season, as well as four assists.
Balogun also scored on his first start for the England u21s.
This is easily the best form of the 20-year-old’s Arsenal academy career, and the clearest sign we’ve seen yet that he’s ready for the next step.
But, after his cameo appearances for the Arsenal first team against Brentford and Chelsea, in which he only spent 70 minutes on the pitch in total, Balogun hasn’t come close to making further starts for Arsenal.
It looks like a loan for the second half of the season is the stepping stone Balogun needs.
