PSG have been impressed by Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun during the striker’s season on loan with Reims.
That’s according to reports in the French media, which claim the Ligue 1 champions have added the Arsenal forward to their summer shortlist.

Looking to add younger quality to their squad with the futures of Lionel Messi and Neymar Jnr uncertain, PSG’s pursuit of Balogun will come down to how much the player wants to move away from Arsenal.
Unlikely to become a first-team star under Mikel Arteta due to Gabriel Jesus being the Spaniard’s main striker, reassurances over regular playing time will likely be the 21-year-old’s main motivation.
And should that be something Arsenal are unable to offer, fans should probably expect to see their New York-born hitman request a move elsewhere, and PSG is a hard opportunity for any player to turn down.
During his season on loan with Reims, Balogun, who has two years left on his Arsenal contract, has scored 18 league goals in just 28 starts.
