Many Liverpool fans have been reacting to what Arsenal forward Folarin Balogun has posted on social media, as the Reds target responded cryptically to a post from Curtis Jones.
Liverpool have been linked with the 19-year-old in recent weeks, who has been instrumental for the Gunners’ U23s side during the current campaign, scoring four goals from 10 appearances in the Premier Leauge 2 (TransferMarkt).
Manager Mikel Arteta has been giving the American-born attacker opportunities in the Europa League, and has found the net twice from four outings.
Balogun responded to Jones’ post on Instagram with a handshaking emoji, to which the Liverpool midfielder responded with a fingers crossed symbol, perhaps implying a deal is being made behind the scenes.
Should Liverpool sign Folarin Balogun?
Because of this, supporters erupted in delight, hoping they see Balogun wearing a Liverpool shirt next month.
Fans want Balogun at Anfield
“Would love him at Liverpool”
“Please make it happen, Liverpool”
“Oh yes let’s do it”
“I thought nothing until I say Curtis’ reply… it’s happening, the rebuild”
