Folarin Balogun has reportedly become a transfer target for Chelsea, with the Blues asking questions of the Arsenal-owned striker.
The 21-year-old will be on the move in the summer window, with a productive loan spell at Ligue 1 side Reims last season bringing him to the attention of clubs across Europe.
The expectation was that the United States international would leave English football, but that may not be the case.
That is because Football Transfers are reporting that the USMNT star has emerged as a potential option for Chelsea, as they seek to address glaring goalscoring issues at Stamford Bridge.
Although Christopher Nkunku was already acquired by the Blues, he is more of a deep-lying forward.
In west London, Folarin Balogun might be the line leader, and Chelsea has enquired as to his availability.
The Blues permitted German star Kai Havertz to sign with Arsenal this summer.
Also, a deal may be struck that paves the way for future activity between the two Premier League giants.
