Arsenal set Folarin Balogun price tag amid surprise interest from Crystal Palace

Folarin Balogun

Arsenal will reportedly demand £35 million (€40.7m/$44.4m) to sell highly-rated striker Folarin Balogun this summer.

The US-born striker enjoyed a stunning season on loan at Reims, scoring 21 goals in Ligue 1.

He is set to return to Arsenal this summer but has made it clear he wants to be sold permanently or feature more regularly for the Arsenal first team.

With a loan move ruled out from the player’s camp Arsenal are willing to sell him if the right offer comes. Balogun is already generating transfer interest from Inter Milan, RB Leipzig, AC Milan and most recently, Crystal Palace. 

And according to The Sun, the raft of clubs interested in his services will have to pay Arsenal £35million for the striker. The 21-year-old has also been impressive for the United States men’s national team after choosing to represent the U.S. instead of England. 

It remains to be seen if Arsenal will receive the bids they require to let Balogun leave the club. Should they complete Balogun’s sale, the Gunners will invest the money in signing Declan Rice and Kai Harvetz.
