There has been unease among Arsenal fans over claims that young sensation Folarin Balogun could part ways with the club.

Folarin Balogun is one of the hottest prospects in Arsenal, tipped to have a great future, reasons why losing him will be a big blow.

So far, he has scored 38 goals in just 41 outings for the U18 side and tipped to make it to Mikel Arteta’s squad in coming years.

Efforts to have the 18-year-old sign a new deal with the club have failed, the reason why the club may be forced to cash in on him.

However, it is reported that AC Milan and Southampton are the two clubs tempting the young lad with interests with claims that he favours a move to Italy.

The man behind AC Milan’s recruitment is the former Arsenal Chief, Ivan Gazidis who masterminds the interest in the player who is regarded as Arsenal future.

This means Ivan Gazidis will be hurting his former employers in an attempt to make a good future for his new employers.

Meanwhile, Arsenal rejected a £5m bid from Brentford for Folarin Balogun in the past few months.

Ivan Gazidis is well known to Arsenal after playing a vital role at the club for many years. He will be remembered for getting rid of former manager Arsene Wenger.
