Folarin Balogun played on loan at Middlesbrough last season and will fancy more senior involvements this season
Arsenal are yet to make a decision on the future of their young attacker as many clubs lurk to see if they can sanction a deal.
French Ligue 1 side, Reims have indicated interest in the Anglo-Nigerian forward who is eligible for the Super Eagles.
Arsenal’s acquisition of Gabriel Jesus has also dampened Balogun’s opportunities at the club and won’t mind playing in a top European league for the rest of the season.
The forward signed a new deal for the Gunners last season after a prolonged negotiation phase.
Reims have lost their star man, Hugo Ekitike to PSG and are looking at a player whose profile can be developed.
Balogun may, however, still have a chance at the Emirates with Arsenal playing across various fronts this season.
Gunners faithful have called for a third attacker for the team but the direction of Arsenal’s summer spree isn’t looking to head towards that decision, with Balogun probably considered a decent fit for the role.
He scored two goals two seasons ago in the Europa League and having gotten some senior experience under his belt, he may be considered as Arsenal’s third-choice fofrwad for the season, a role Balogun isn’t looking to accept.
