Southampton have joined the list of clubs keen on Arsenal starlet Folarin Balogun.

Arsenal are set to lose Balogun, 18, this summer after failing to agree a new deal with the prolific striker.

Arsenal turned down a £5m offer for Balogun from Championship promotion hopefuls Brentford in January. His current deal expires next summer.

But the Gunners have been unable to convince Balogun to extend his contract and that the Emirates remains the best place for his development, either with their offer or his involvement in Mikel Arteta's first team setup.

Rather than lose Balogun for nothing when his deal runs out Arsenal are now preparing to consider offers this summer.

Brentford remain interested along with AC Milan who also wanted Balogun in January while Southampton have joined the list of admirers.

Balogun's exit would see Arsenal lose a player rated as one of the best young attacking talents in England.

The New York-born striker scored 28 goals in 28 youth appearances for Arsenal last season, including 25 in just 19 games at under-18 level.

This season Balogun has scored another 10 goals in just 15 appearances for Arsenal's under-23s before the youth season was curtailed in May, bringing his campaign to an end
