CHELSEA have reportedly made a decision about trying to sign Arsenal star Folarin Balogun for £50 million this summer.
There are literally just a few days left in the transfer window and the club are working hard on bringing in a new striker – with Balogun a man that they are seriously interested in.
The striker impressed over in Ligue 1 last season and netted an impressive 22 goals for Frenche side Reims – and many believed that he would be given a chance by Mikel Arteta.
However – that is not the case as the Spanish boss can not guarantee him the regular game time that he desires – and he is reportedly desperate for a transfer move away from the Emirates, and we have been in talks over a deal.
WHAT IS THE LATEST –
The Gunners want £50m to part ways with Balogun but the board do not think he is worth that much, according to BBC report
After initial talks with the Gunners regarding a fee, the Stamford Bridge club have ended their interest.
Monaco have already had an offer rejected for the 22-year-old, while Inter have been attempting to negotiate a loan package with an option to buy.
IS BALOGUN WORTH £50 MILLION?
The lad is certainly a talent and the type of player that the board have been keen to sign in recent weeks – but he is not yet worth £50 million, and anybody would be mad to pay that.
He done very well last season but we would prefer that the board signed a more established striker.
