Arsenal youngster Folarin Balogun has agreed in principle to join RB Leipzig, according to Football Insider. The Bundesliga side are in the line to win the race for the striker.

The 19-year-old’s departure could be a huge blow to the Premier League side. An Arsenal source has told Football Insider that Balogun is set to sign a pre-contract with Leipzig and will join them in the summer on a free transfer

Balogun is out of contract at the Gunners at the end of the season. He is now set to become the latest young player to swap a Premier League club for one of the Bundesliga giants.

The England Under-20 international has already scored two senior goals, both in the Europa League, but is still waiting for his Premier League debut.
