Liverpool are considering £8m move for Arsenal wonderkid

Liverpool are being credited with an interest in Arsenal U23 forward Folarin Balogun according to the Sky Sports.

The 19-year-old forward who has never made a first-team game for the Gunners is out of contract in 2021 and is not putting pen to paper on a contract extension over a lack of assurances surrounding his first-team future.

The report claims that the Gunners are looking for around £8m for the forward who is also attracting Brentford and teams from Bundesliga.

Balogun would not be a first-team option for us immediately either, and likely a player who would at first step into the Merseyside Reds U23s.

At this level, he’s fairly prolific, as he has managed to found back of the net 10 times in Premier League 2 this campaign just gone.

Balogun was born in New York and could represent either the United States or England at international level.

He’s pacy, direct and can finish with power on either foot – however, is much more of a striker than a tricky, false-9, which Jurgen Klopp currently deploys in Roberto Firmino.
