A number of Arsenal fans have discussed the Sky Sports report linking Folarin Balogun to Brentford, and some reckon it could be a great opportunity to bring Said Benrahma to the Emirates Stadium.
According to Sky Sports, Balogun has refused to sign a new contract after failing to get assurances of a pathway into the first team, and is happy to see out his current deal until 2021.
The outlet also claims that the 19-year-old – who is yet to play for the Arsenal first team – was on Brentford’s radar in January but no deal could be agreed, and it appears as though he’s still a target.
With the Bees now just one game away from the Premier League and Balogun’s future at Arsenal uncertain, it has been reported that the Gunners are demanding at least £8million for their player’s signature.
Benrahma has been a crucial player for Brentford this season, his 17 goals and 10 assists putting Thomas Frank’s side on the verge of the top-flight, and he has caught the eye of many Gunners fans.
And with Brentford seemingly wanting Balogun, some Gunners supporters reckon the opportunity is there for a swap or cash-plus-player deal for Benrahma:
