Folarin Balogun Makes Final Decision About His Stay With Arsenal

19-year-old Folarin Balogun has finally decided to extend his stay at Arsenal to fight for his place as a striker in the team.


The New York born Nigerian Athlete agreed to sign a new four-year contract with the Emirates team. He had previously stalled over signing the contract extension as he sought assurances from manager, Mikel Arteta over playing time.


So far, the English professional player has made five appearances for Arsenal’s senior side, scoring two goals in Europa League fixtures against Molde and Dundalk, respectively.


His ongoing contract with Arsenal will expire in 2021.


Recall that when Arteta spoke about Balogun in January, he told the Arsenal’s website: “His progression and the use of the time that he’s had with us has been incredible.

“He will keep having chances while he’s with us.”


The young player had drawn interest from Championship side Brentford, clubs in Germany, while at one stage Liverpool were also believed to be weighing up a move for him.
