Inter Milan have identified Arsenal forward Folarin Balogun as their main target to strengthen the club’s front line.
The Nerazzurri have parted ways with Edin Dzeko after his contract expired. The Bosnian then joined Fenerbahce as a free agent.
On the other hand, the controversial behavior of Romelu Lukaku caused the Nerazzurri to cut all ties with the Belgian striker who seems to have been flirting with Juventus.
The Italian giants have secured the services of Marcus Thuram on a free transfer but are still in need of an extra profile in the attacking department.
According to Sportitalia via FcInterNewsBalogun is now at the top of Inter’s striker list.
The USMNT star managed to shine during last season’s loan spell at Stade Reims, attracting the interest of several suitors from across Europe.
Arsenal are open to selling, but will seek to raise a figure that exceeds 40 million euros.

However, the Nerazzurri will be hoping to lower the entire operation to 40 million (including bonuses). This is the figure that the club had allocated for the botched transfer of Lukaku.
The source adds that the American striker is eager to pull on the famous Black and Blue shirt.
However, Balogun is not the only profile on the club’s radar. In fact, Inter has drawn up a list of four people.
In addition to the Arsenal striker, the Nerazzurri are monitoring three other profiles to improve the front line.
They are Udinese star Beto, Atletico Madrid veteran Alvaro Morata and West Ham United’s Gianluca Scamacca.
