Arsenal Transfer News: Arsenal, according to Calciomercatoweb, may give 17-goal hero Folarin Balogun as part of a deal to get Ismael Bennacer. In the summer, Mikel Arteta plans to add an Algerian midfielder because he believes he is the best option for the team’s future.
It seems that AC Milan has secured Ismael Bennacer’s future services. This summer, though, he may get some offers. The Algerian midfielder is still one of the most important players for the Rossoneri under new coach Stefano Pioli.
Although Milan as a whole has had a rough season, Bennacer has done his bit to help. In the offseason, Arsenal may plan an attack to take advantage of the current scenario at the San Siro. As an example, Milan may need to find a replacement for Rafael Leao this summer since his future is in serious question.

Arsenal Transfer News: What’s the matter?
As part of the Bennacer trade, Arsenal is willing to include Folarin Balogun, a teenage attacker who has scored 17 goals for Reims this season. According to the rumour, Arsenal may give the 25-year-old a combination of the 21-year-old and cash in order to sign him.
Mikel Arteta is still interested in signing a new midfielder. Declan Rice is at the top of their want list. They may, however, decide to leave their options open and go for Bennacer instead. The 25-year-old midfielder started his career at Arsenal before breaking out with Milan.
According to reports, the Serie A powerhouses are keen on signing Balogun. Bennacer is much more valuable than the striker who scored 17 goals in this situation. Several Italian teams are interested in the kid. Therefore Arsenal may want to cash in on a potential transfer by selling him.

What’s next for the Gunners?
According to the rumour mill, Arsenal is considering trading Balogun and some cash for Bennacer. Milan needs a new productive attacker, so the offer may seem appealing. The Algerian has been a top performer for them while Pioli has been coach. So, they have no immediate plans to sell him.
Besides Liverpool, several Premier League teams are showing interest in Bennacer. Klopp wants to bolster his midfield with reliable players, and Klopp wants to hear from you. A race with Arsenal might sway the 25-year-old to return to London instead of joining the Merseysiders.
How serious the Gunners are about Bennacer will become clear in the coming months. It has been said that they are keen. But, it is possible that signing him over Rice would be seen as a risky decision. The Algerian midfielder just re-upped with Milan, so the Serie A powerhouse is in no hurry to move him.
