Brentford bid for Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun

Brentford are chasing Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun.

The Daily Mail says Brentford have had a bid rejected for £5m plus add-ons for Balogun.

The Gunners turned down an offer and the Championship promotion hopefuls could face shock competition for Balogun, 18, from AC Milan with the Serie A side scouring the market as they target young English talent.

Prolific England under-18 striker Balogun has come to the attention of both clubs after two especially prolific seasons at youth level for Arsenal.

He scored 28 goals in 28 games at youth level for Arsenal last season, including 25 in just 19 under-18 games.
