AC Milan have Arsenal youngster Folarin Balogun on their list of potential targets in the summer, but know he has a ‘close relationship’ with the Gunners.

That’s according to Gazzetta dello Sport, who say the Italian know it may be tough to get the young forward out of the Emirates.

Balogun has been shining on loan away from Arsenal this season, scoring 16 goals and registering two assists in 27 games at Reims this season.

His performances have been earning him rave reviews and plenty of admirers too, with Milan adding him to their list of options to look at.

They want to add a younger player to their forward line in the summer as an alternative to Divock Origi and have drawn up a list of options to look at moving forwards.

Balogun is on that list after his performances his season but they know that he has a ‘close relationship’ with Arsenal and that would be hard to break.

The interest is there, though, and if there’s no place for him at Arsenal next season, it could be a situation to keep an eye on in the coming months.
