Swansea move for Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun

Swansea City are moving for Arsenal striker Folarin Balogun.

The 19-year-old is highly-rated at the Emirates Stadium but has just six months left to run on his contract and has yet to agree a new deal after becoming frustrated at his lack of game time.

Football Insider says Swansea are in contact.

The Championship side - who were relegated from the Premier League in 2018 - are keen to add to their attacking options this month, and looked set to signing Michael Obafemi before the Southampton forward suffered an injury.

That has seen the Liberty Stadium outfit - who sit second in the Championship table, four points behind leaders Norwich - turn their attention to Balogun, who has scored 55 goals in 82 games for the Gunners' youth teams.
