Inter Milan are reportedly in constant contact with Arsenal as they hope to lure Folarin Balogun towards the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium.

With less than two weeks separating us from the start of the Serie A campaign, the Nerazzurri are desperate to sign a new striker.

Simone Inzaghi only has Lautaro Martinez, Marcus Thuram and Joaquin Correa as attacking options.

Therefore, the management is racing to secure the services of a competent forward who can add quality to the department.

According to Sky Sport via FcInter1908, Inter have an open dialogue with Arsenal. The clubs are looking to sort out a transfer for Folarin Balogun.

The 22-year-old returned to North London following an impressive loan spell at Stade Reims.

Yet, he still finds himself on the outside, with Gunners manager Mikel Arteta not interested in his services.

Therefore, Arsenal are looking to sell the USMNT star this summer, slapping a price tag of 40 million euros on his back.

Inter Milan And Arsenal Are In Constant Talks As They Try To Reach An Accord For The Transfer Of Folarin Balogun

As the source reveals, Monaco have recently lunged forward with an offer worth 30 million. However, the Premier League giants politely rejected it.

Hence, we shall see if the Inter Milan would be able to reach an agreement with the Gunners.

The report adds that the Nerazzurri are also monitoring other profiles. This echoes the words of the club’s sporting director Piero Ausilio on Tuesday evening.

The source claims that Inter are keeping tabs on Porto striker Mehdi Taremi. However, the Iranian won’t come cheap either. The Portuguese giants want 30 million euros for the 31-year-old.

On the other hand, Udinese bomber Beto remains an outside option at this point.
