Arsenal set to lose teenage goal scorer after his latest social media post

Arsenal has just signed Bukayo Saka on to a new long-term deal in what is one of the best pieces of business the club has done in a while.

However, the young Englishman isn’t the only youngster that the club is trying to tie down to a new deal.

Reports for some time now have claimed that Arsenal might be about to lose one of the more prodigiously talented youth team players, Folarin Balogun.

The teenager is a prolific striker for the Arsenal youth teams, and he has entered the final year of his current deal with the Gunners.

He is a subject of interest from some of the best teams in Europe (HITC), but Arsenal wants to keep hold of him.

However, it appears that the player may have decided to leave the Gunners for good after his latest post on social media.

The striker made a post on his Instagram which seems to suggest that he has made his last visit to the Arsenal training ground.

He posted an image of the club’s London Colney’s academy training ground and he captioned it: ‘A lot of goals on that pitch’ alongside a crying emoji.

Balogun has been unconvinced of his chances of breaking into the Arsenal first team with the likes of Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Martinelli all ahead of him in the pecking order.

      Agreed Sue.

          Happy days, Geoff!! 🥳 No, I’ve not seen anything as yet…. he has to be next surely 🙏 🤞

          1. Geoff says:

            Well if it’s true and we’re getting rid of £180+kpw MKH,then it’s very little extra to keep AUB !!
            To be honest,I thought we would be looking at £300-£350kpw to keep him,considering the bargaining position he is in !

          2. Sue says:

            I did too, Geoff! Albeit 250k is a crazy insane amount to us mere mortals, if that is what it takes to keep him, it has to be done!
            The last week or so, i think the signs have looked promising….. so we wait…and wait…..(with everything crossed 😀!!)

    Well Sue, I think 250k for your absolute star player is decent. Just need to be sure that the benchwarmers aren’t paid 100k+.. And I’m not even gonna start about Ozil

    Players like Mustafi should never be anywhere close to 100k a week.

    1. Sue says:

      We have been too generous over the last few seasons!!
      I certainly wouldn’t begrudge giving Auba that though… he’s earned every penny!
