Folarin Balogun has been making a name for himself since joining Stade de Reims in January 2021 on loan from Arsenal. The 20-year-old forward has scored four goals in his 11 appearances so far and previously made 10 appearances for the Gunners’ first team before his loan move. He has also represented England at U19 and U20 level, scoring eight goals in 13 games in total.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek meanwhile is currently on loan at Fulham from Chelsea where he’s made 16 Premier League appearances this season. The 24 year old midfielder has been at Chelsea since 2014 but injury problems have hampered his progress in recent years. He’s also represented England at youth level and was part of the squad that won the Under 17 World Cup back in 2017.

Daichi Kamada meanwhile is an attacking midfielder currently playing for Eintracht Frankfurt and is a regular starter for them this season having played 26 times so far, scoring seven goals and providing four assists along the way. The Japanese international previously played for Sagan Tosu before joining Eintracht in 2019 and has gone on to make 73 appearances for them overall to date.

Despite Arsenal reportedly putting a €30 million transfer fee on Balogun’s head it seems AC Milan could be willing to splash out for him if they can get their hands on him before anyone else does – with RB Leipzig also interested – as they look ahead to the 2023/24 season when they’ll be wearing their new AC Milan jersey. With both Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Daichi Kamada available too, there looks like there will be plenty of exciting additions coming into San Siro over the summer transfer window should these moves go through as planned by AC Milan president Paolo Maldini and sporting director Frederic Massara .
