After an impressive season in France with Stade de Reims, Arsenal’s Folarin Balogun is contemplating a permanent exit. Despite signing a three-year deal with Arsenal, the young striker is uninterested in another loan spell and is considering options for a definitive move.
With Balogun’s contract running until 2025, it’s unclear where the striker, who shares a squad with talents like Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah, fits in Arteta’s plans. A meeting between Balogun’s representatives and the Arsenal board is on the horizon to discuss these uncertainties.
Balogun’s footballing future isn’t just a hot topic at the club level. On the international stage, he’s set to don the Stars and Stripes.
Born in New York, the 21-year-old has decided to represent the USA at the senior international level, committing to the US Men’s National Team (USMNT) over England and Nigeria.
Balogun is poised to make his debut in the upcoming CONCACAF Nations League, a significant milestone in his burgeoning career.
As the young striker mulls over his options, one thing remains clear: Balogun’s performances have made him a hot commodity.
Whether he’ll remain at Arsenal or embark on a new journey remains to be seen. But wherever he lands, he’s set to have a considerable impact.
