Romano said at the time: “He has like 15 bids on the table from Italian clubs, English clubs, German clubs. Many clubs are talking with his agent because now he’s a potential free agent for the summer.

“Balogun wants to play, his priority is to play. In the Europa League he was amazing but he was playing 60 minutes in total and that’s why the player is not so happy.

“He’s still open to talking with Arsenal about a new contract if they will let him play. If Mikel will change the situation and let him play in the next weeks for sure the situation can change and he can sit with Arsenal and discuss a new contract.

“He loves Arsenal, I heard he loves the club and would like to stay but he’s just not playing. For a young talent it’s terrible not to play. He feels he’s ready to help the club and wants to play.”
