After a successful season-long loan in France, Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint-Germain are allegedly interested in buying Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun.

The former Middlesbrough loanee has been one of Ligue 1’s most accurate scorers this season, scoring 18 league goals in 32 appearances for Reims, who are presently 11th in the standings.

The 21-year-old England youth international has lately declared his desire to return to the Emirates as the team’s starting striker for the upcoming season, but with players like Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah on the roster, he could need to transfer elsewhere to secure regular playing time.

PSG is one of the teams in Europe reportedly mulling a transfer for Balogun, with the Parisians’ Kylian Mbappe being one of just three players to have scored more goals in Ligue 1 than the Reims forward.

According to the source, Mikel Arteta’s Gunners will hold urgent negotiations with the player over his long-term future. These conversations may result in him playing football outside of North London once more the following season.

On Tuesday night, Arsenal will host rival Chelsea at the Emirates with the knowledge that a win would return them to the top of the Premier League standings, if only for two days.
