RB Leipzig In The Driving Seat To Sign Liverpool-Linked Arsenal Striker Of Nigerian DescentPublished: January 13, 2021
RB Leipzig are reportedly in the driving seat to sign Arsenal striker of Nigerian descent Folarin Balogun.
Football Insider claims that RB Leipzig have won the race for the services of the England U20 international in what is a huge blow to Arsenal who offered him a new contract.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for Balogun but it appears that the talented striker's preferred destination is RB Leipzig.
Balogun's Nigerian agent Emeka Obasi used to look after RB Leipzig-owned winger Ademola Lookman and brokered the deal that took the Super Eagles hopeful to the German Bundesliga club in 2019, lending credence to the report.
According to the report, the 19-year-old has agreed to sign a preliminary contract with RB Leipzig and he would be joining them on a free transfer after his Arsenal contract runs out at the end of June.
Balogun has appeared in five matches for Arsenal's first team, scoring two goals and providing an assist, and has captained the U23 squad in Premier League 2 matches this season.
He joined the north London club at U8 level and signed his first professional contract in February 2019.
