Milan are interested in Arsenal youngster Folarin Balogun and contacts with his agents are expected to be made soon.
Daniele Longo has reported that Milan are already planning for transfers for the summer, with the club expected to be handed a €50 million budget soon. Money from sales will be added to that later. A fair amount of that money will go towards signing a new number nine, who has to be a smart investment for the present and the future.
Balogun’s profile is the one that is most liked by Milan after his impressive loan spell at Reims. Arsenal do consider him to be unsellable and are ready to listen to offers for Balogun, who has already chosen to play for the United States of America.
The Rossoneri are already trying to create a foundation for a move, as contacts with his agents are expected before the end of the season. They do expect to encounter some difficulties, especially because other clubs like him too. RB Leipzig are said to be in the front row for the 21-year-old. Arsenal value him at over 30 million and that is also a problem that Milan would have to solve.
