Folarin Balogun, Arsenal Striker, Requests Club to Play Him or Facilitate His Sale as He Declines Another Loan Move


Folarin Balogun, the talented 21-year-old striker, has made it clear to Arsenal that he wants to be integrated into the first team for the upcoming season or be sold during the summer transfer window, as he rejects the prospect of going out on loan once again.

Having enjoyed a successful loan spell at Stade de Reims, where he scored an impressive 21 goals in Ligue 1, Balogun has demonstrated his potential and attracted attention. With Arsenal already having Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah competing for the No 9 position, the club may consider leveraging Balogun’s excellent form to generate funds for other transfer targets.

With two years remaining on his contract, Balogun seeks a resolution regarding his future, expressing his desire not to go out on loan again. Following his first goal for the USA in their Concacaf Nations League final victory over Canada, he stated, “I’m just committed to now, I try to stay present. I obviously want to enjoy the moment with my team and my family.”

A product of Arsenal’s academy, Balogun has made 10 first-team appearances, primarily in cup competitions, and previously had a loan stint at Middlesbrough. His ambition now lies in securing a more prominent role and contributing to Arsenal’s success or potentially exploring new opportunities elsewhere.

As discussions unfold, fans and observers await further developments regarding Balogun’s future and how Arsenal will respond to his request for integration or a potential sale.
