In search of an offensive reinforcement, the recruiters of the Forez club would have activated the track of the Arsenal center forward, Folarin Balogun.
” I like to be down to earth. We want to try to recruit and we need it. But given our envelope, we will rely on loans. I hope that we will find two, three rare birds that will give the team confidence, to move forward “, announced Claude Puel, a few days ago, in an interview with the team.
After successfully attracting Joris Gnagnon, a 24-year-old central defender, the Stéphanois would be active behind the scenes for the other priority of Claude Puel. The Greens are looking for offensive reinforcement for the upcoming transfer market.
According to information from Football.London, the French formation would be in the footsteps of the young Gunners striker, Folarin Balogun. The 20-year-old British striker has had an excellent first half of the season with the Arsenal reserve. Author of 16 goals and 2 assists in all competitions, he now wants to do good performances with the pros.
Having had two appearances at the start of the season with Mikel Arteta’s side, the young England striker knows full well that he will have a hard time getting more playing time in the Premier League. In competition with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette, Folarin Balogun would have opened the door to a departure on loan until the end of the season. In the viewfinder of several English clubs like Middlesbrough, Millwall and Swansea, the striker trained at Arsenal would also be on the shelves of AS Saint-Etienne.
