Folarin Balogun has been a man in demand for a long time – and it looks like the winter window could finally see the attacker secure a move away from the Emirates Stadium.

The striker looks like he may finally be on his way out the exit door at Arsenal in search of regular first-team football and there is still no shortage of teams looking to sign him up. The Sun reports that he is a transfer target for Middlesbrough, who are now being led by Chris Wilder for instance. Another team keen to do business is Swansea, who are also keeping tabs on the situation as reported by Swansea Independent.

Both teams look set to do battle for his signature, so what is the latest on these links?

Has Britt Assombalonga ever played abroad?

There appears to be some serious interest from both sides, as well as other divisional rivals in the Championship. The young forward looks sharp and has been firing in the goals for fun in the Gunners’ academy – so it is no wonder he is eager to test himself in competitive football.

With the fact he hasn’t had experience in it as of yet, it means he still represents somewhat of a risk to any team that does agree a deal to bring him in. However, the striker looks a solid talent and with a growing desire to prove himself, he will be raring to get going – and it means that he will be playing to impress when he first joins a new team.

Both sides look set for a long winter window then.

They’ll both be eager to sign him, as they both have potential play-off ambitions and additional firepower can only help the cause of both teams. It could be a tug-of-war to sign him but whoever wins look like they could be getting a shrewd signing.
