The Arsenal owned striker is currently on loan with Reims in Ligue 1, but is set to head back to the Emirates at the end of the season.

And he is allegedly available for around £35 million. That sounds like great business to me and it appears as though Moyes thinks so as well…

Get Italian Football News reckon that it could be a straight shootout between the Hammers and AC Milan for the Gunners forward.

I have to say, I think that the Arsenal owned striker would be the perfect summer addition to Moyes’s ranks at the London Stadium.

Balogun has bagged 20 goals in 35 Ligue 1 games so far (Transfermarkt). That puts him behind only Kylian Mbappe, Jonathan David and Alexandre Lacazette in the goalscoring charts.

He has blistering pace and raw power in abundance and has the ability and potential to go on and become a real star of the game.

He has proven this season that he is more than ready to produce the goods at the very highest level on a consistent basis.

The Daily Star recently described the 21-year-old as Europe’s ‘most lethal young talent’.

What an incredibly exciting signing Folarin Balogun would be for West Ham in the summer transfer window. Whether we are able to beat AC Milan to his signature remains to be seen though.
