The West Ham board have told David Moyes their decision regarding potential £50 million Folarin Balogun signing
And Sky Sports claimed last month that Arsenal will demand as much as £50 million for Balogun. The USMNT striker is exactly what we need at the London Stadium.
He has pace and power in abundance and is a very good finisher indeed. However, it appears as though he won’t be swapping North London for East London this summer…
West Ham board have told David Moyes their decision regarding potential £50 million Folarin Balogun signing
FootballTransfers reckon that the Gunners forward won’t be joining the Hammers this summer because David Sullivan will not back Moyes with the £50 million needed to bring him to the club.
I have to agree with Sullivan here. As much as I’d love Balogun at the London Stadium, he’s completely unproven in the Premier League.
The American is quite simply not worth £50 million. Perhaps if he was available for closer to £30-35 million, then he’d be worth a punt for West Ham.
There is quite simply far better value for money to be had in the summer transfer market.
West Ham are not in a position to be splashing out £50 million on players like Folarin Balogun. If we are going to spend that kind of cash, it needs to be on a proven player.
Hopefully we do end up signing a striker this summer. The Arsenal forward clearly won’t be coming to the London Stadium though.
