Arsenal fans react as Brentford bid for youngster Folarin Balogun

Arsenal fans have been giving their takes on reports claiming Championship side Brentford have made a bid for talented youngster Folarin Balogun.

The Daily Mail have claimed the Bees have seen an offer of £5 million plus add-ons rejected for the teenager, who is viewed as one of the academy’s brightest prospects.

Balogun is yet to make his first-team bow, but is heading the right way for a chance soon having demonstrated outstanding centre-forward play in recent times.

Last term, Balogun plundered 28 goals in 28 games and in 2019/20 so far, the New-York born ace has seven in 12 for the U23s.

Also chasing Balogun are AC Milan, whose CEO is former Gunners chief Ivan Gazidis.

Brentford are eyeing promotion to the Premier League, and appear to see Balogun as a means of boosting their prospects.
