AC Milan keeping tabs on Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun during Reims loan and are lining up summer transfer swoop | The Sun

SERIE A giants AC Milan are monitoring the progress of Arsenal man Folarin Balogun and are plotting a summer move, according to reports.

Balogun is currently on loan at Reims following a lack of chances in North London.

He does have to two goals for the Gunners to his name but made just four first-team appearances last season.

As a result, he was loaned out to Middlesbrough in January.

And the arrival of Gabriel Jesus and new contract for Eddie Nkeitah forced him to leave on a temporary basis once again.

But while his chances of making the grade at the Emirates might look slim, his form in France has caught Milan's attention.

Balogun has scored 10 goals in 16 Ligue 1 games, including a brace in his first game after the World Cup against Rennes.

According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, Rossoneri are in desperate need of a striker and are keen on the 21-year-old's profile.

Milan sit second in Serie A and are in the knockout stages of the Champions League but they have concerns over each of their senior strikers.

That's because Olivier Giroud is out of contract at the end of the season.
